These are all pretty good descriptions of what very milk-engorged breasts look like. But what do they feel like?
And how long does it last? And does it happen to everyone? During pregnancy your breasts get tender and achy.
In fact, this is one of the very first signs of pregnancy. Around the time of birth, your body starts to produce a pre-milk substance called colostrum.
Milk comes in within the first five days after birth. If you do get engorged, it can range from uncomfortable to downright agonizing.
