Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I don't think ago is a factor for sore boobs.  (I'm 29 and on my second pregnancy, and my boobs hurt like nobody's business, while with my first pregnancy two years, they barely bothered me.)  When I asked my doctor, he said that every pregnancy is different, so the symptoms that you experience each time can be different and vary in severity.  (This time: super sore boobies, but no morning sickness whatsoever.)  My advice: make sure you have a comfortable, supportive bra and realize that this too shall pass!  Good luck with #3!
