Why Aren't My Boobs Sore Anymore?

When I first found out I was pregnant my boobs were so incredibly sore! I'm 12 weeks pregnant now and they barely hurt at all. Should I be nervous of a miscarriage since I've had one before? Do boobs always hurt during pregnancy?

The pain generally gets better by the second trimester, although you may notice that your breasts are still sore from time to time. Everything you describe is normal!
