Changes in your breasts are another very early sign of pregnancy. When you conceive, your body undergoes a rapid change in hormone levels. Because of the changes in hormones, you may notice in one to two weeks that your breasts have become swollen, sore, or tingly. Or they may feel heavier or fuller or feel tender to the touch. In addition, the area around the nipples, called the areola, may darken.
Pregnancy is not the only thing that can cause breast changes. A hormonal imbalance that's unrelated to pregnancy could be responsible. The changes could also be caused by a change in birth control pills, or they could be a premenstrual symptom.
If the changes are an early symptom of pregnancy, keep in mind that it is going to take your body several weeks to get used to the new levels of hormones. But when it does, your breasts will feel less painful than they do in the beginning.
