User :   Hello I am currently 9 weeks pregnant. I have not had any symptoms other than breast pain, breast being swollen and a little larger. I have noticed for the past couple of days that they are not sore and they have gone down in size and are only a little sore around the nipple. Can this be normal during early pregancy? I have never had any other symptoms. I had a ultrasound at 6 weeks 5 days and they said heart rate was good and implantion was good. Return for second ultrasound on tuesday. Please let me know about the situation with my breast
