Still nursing , almost due and sore nipples

Hello all~just wondered if any of you who nursed through her pregnancies had tender, sore nipples when she was almost due. I nursed through one of my other pregnancies and don't remember being so tender at this stage of pregnancy. I know they are sore earlier on in pregnancy but what about now?? My ds only nurses maybe 2-3 times per day for maybe 10-15 minutes if that. Thinking of nursing a newborn 24/7 right now makes me cringe!! Anyone else have this issue?? Thanks!

Re: Still nursing , almost due and sore nipples

I don't have personal experience but my best assumption after all of my research is the elevated levels of hormones and acute sensitivity because of it. I dont know if the child you are having now is the same sex as the one your were preggo with before, but hormone levels can be different between different pregnancies (gosh I'm tired, I hope I'm making sense). I am surprised that you haven't gone into labor yet. The stimulation can cause some uterine activity. Take care. You are already a step ahead of me when I had my last dd. I had to start all over again after 3 years and go through the toughening process I'm sure it will get better once your body's sensory comes back to normal.

Thanks for the input. I'm sure it's just a hormonal thing but I don't remember them being this tender at this point. The lactation consultant where I work thinks all be straighten out after delivery. Hope so! Anyone have first hand experience??
