Is it common to have sore armpits during pregnanacy?
Hello, I am 25 years old female. Has anyone ever had a tender sore armpit during pregnancy? It's been like that since the beginning and at 12 weeks now. I need an ultrasound next month. Is it common to have sore armpits during pregnancy? Can anyone help me with it?
@rasme Hello, pregnant women have been known to get concerned over what they think are swollen lymph nodes but in fact are special tissue (located anywhere between the armpit and the groin) that are gearing up for milk production. They can become tender and swollen but will atrophy and go away eventually. If you have swollen glands while pregnant and you’re unsure of what it is, talk to your doctor. It is always a good idea to talk to a doctor.
