cause of breast tenderness??

3rd baby Is 11 weeks. Been having breast tenderness for several days. Doesn't seem to be nursing more frequently. Not mastitis. Like the tenderness I experienced with first two during menstruation, but not menstruating. Noticed more vaginal mucus these past few days. I had some ideas, but would like to see what others thought. So any thoughts?

I never noticed it with ovulation on my other two, but thought that might be the cause. How long does it normally last for you?

Too long! :/ A few days, every month. However, if you're exclusively breastfeeding, it's unlikely that you're having ovulatory cycles at 11 weeks PP. If you do end up with your period in a couple of weeks (which I hope you don't!) maybe you can chalk the tenderness up to hormones.

Sounds like we may have a culprit, then.
