I experienced extreme breast swelling and nipples protruding like spikes at 4 weeks. However, overnight in the 5th week, the swelling disappeared, my breasts feel fine, and my nipples are soft. Is this a common occurrence or could it be a sign of miscarriage?
Artificial Intelligence Health Assistant's Answer

It is not uncommon for women to experience breast changes during pregnancy. Swelling, pain, and extruded nipples are often early signs of pregnancy as hormonal changes occur. However, it is also important to note that every woman's experience can vary. In your case, the sudden resolution of symptoms does not necessarily indicate a miscarriage. Breast changes can fluctuate throughout pregnancy due to hormonal shifts. If you have any concerns or if other symptoms arise, it is always best to consult with your healthcare provider for further evaluation and guidance specific to your situation.

I'm 6weeks and my symptoms have changed from week to week.I still wake up with a little breast tenderness but some days I feel no symptoms at all. However when I previously had a miscarriage it was unmistakable. I was spotting dark brown almost the entire time I was pregnant and had weird symptoms everyday. And when it finally happened, the blood, golf ball size tissue, and cramping were dead giveaways. And the complete absence of any pregnancy symptoms after also confirmed it. I would advise you to go see your doctor if you have spotting. But other than that, stay calm until your first  appointment. And trust me you will likely know you're having a miscarriage.
