That is a bit reassuring. This is the first time it has EVER happened to me and it just scares me a lot.

Do hormones drop around 11 weeks?

Feed your children human milk as long as possible, it might save their life. It did my son's.

Hmm, well I know that hCG decreases and the placenta takes over progesterone and estrogen production around 10-12 weeks (that timeframe can vary between women). I believe that estrogen levels fluctuate throughout pregnancy, albeit with a steady upward trend. I hope more knowledgeable mamas will correct me if I'm wrong, it's been a long time since I took that course. Estrogen is responsible for breast changes during pregnancy, of course.

Anecdotally, I noticed a supply drop around 9 weeks but I kept nursing and I'm back to being able to easily hand express at 11.5 weeks. This "proves" nothing and is not meant to have any physiological rules extracted, only saying that I've observed personal changes which I would characterize as hormonal.

Have other mamas been educated on sex hormones more recently? Please share!

Well I woke up with low back pain that comes in waves and the pain increases a bit each time. Needless to say after a Urology appt for me and a Speech for DS I will be going in to the ER to be looked at.

With ds1 that happened to me. I think it was around 10 or 12 weeks where my symptoms just vanished and I actually felt really great. I didn't feel pregnant at all, but he was born at 41 weeks so I clearly was.

Re: Uhhh this is SUPER weird.

I hope all is well!! With this pregnancy, for a while only ONE of my breasts got sore and bigger, it was lovely. I was totally lopsided. The other one finally caught up. My husband is thrilled with the return of giant boobs....my breast shrunk quite a bit after I weaned my second son. I was bummed that they were so much smaller than pre-kids and floppy, pancake boobs. I'm rather enjoying having my old boobs back, if only they weren't so sore.

Keep us updated on what happens when you go it. Keeping everything crossed that all is well and this is just some funky hormonal shift!

Re: Uhhh this is SUPER weird.

I didn't go in because I would feel stupid for going into the ER with barely any pain (it comes and goes) and there is no one to watch DD. I put a call into my OB to see what he says.

I am so confused!

Did they examine you or give you an ultrasound?

I edited my comment and it sounded like I went in. I didn't because of barely any pain (comes and goes) and no one to watch DD. I really don't want her there in case there is something wrong. It will devastate her.
