Hi. I would like to say that I am sorry to all of you who have had a miscarriage. I just suffered a miscarriage at 20 wks (4days ago) and it's probably the toughest thing I have had to go through. I also had a miscarriage at 11wks last year. This time, my breasts are swelling and aboth are very hot, heavy, and hard as rocks. Has anyone else experienced this and do you have any advise? I'm not sure if I need to hheat them or use the frozen cabbage leaves. Please help.

I am so sorry for your losses. It sounds like your milk came in and what you are experiencing is called engorgement. It helps to put cold compresses on your breasts. Wear a tight bra and don't stimulate your nipples (don't allow water to run over then in the shower). (((HUGS))) and once again I am so sorry for your losses.
