Pregnancy Symptoms (cont.)

Breast Swelling, Tenderness, and Pain

Changes in the breasts are a common symptom of early pregnancy. The breasts may feel painful, tender, heavy, or swollen. Sometimes these symptoms may also occur in the days prior to the menstrual cycle, and the sensation may be very similar to that experienced in early pregnancy. Breast symptoms can begin in some women as early as the first few weeks of pregnancy.
