How long are the boobs sore?
 
So this is my 4th baby but it's been 5 years since my last one :) My breasts are really sore. I'm 2 weeks postpartum now and engorgement is over but they are still really full and heavy and sore! Not the nipples, those are a little sore too, but I'm talking about just the heaviness and general soreness. I forget, how long does this last? I nursed my other kids too, for about a year and a half each but I just don't remember when the boobs stop hurting. I haven't been taking any ibuprofen. I keep thinking the soreness is going to go away soon.

I don't think I have oversupply but I definitely have never had a shortage. I'm already starting to get lopsided which is so annoying. The left breast has always been bigger and fuller, even if I always put baby on the right side first. This time I'm thinking I'll just get some kind of boob insert thing so that I'll look balanced lol.

I know that I felt uncomfortably big for quite a while, but can't remember how long. I can't remember how sore, but I do remember that I couldn't lay on my stomach because they hurt for a long time. I am a stomach sleeper so being prego is hard on me! I was looking forward to it after DD was born and didn't know my boobs would keep me on my sides/back. I would guess....3 mths or so. But that is a total guess.
