My Boob Is Humming

OK, this is my second pregnancy, and I am 20 weeks along. Today my left br___t kept having this humming feeling. I didn't experience this with my first. What's the deal? It feels kind of like when your foot falls asleep, although not nearly as uncomfortable.

OMG- I'm SOO SORRRY, but I'm LMAO. When I read the t_tle of your post, I thought it was actually making a humming NOISE. SORRY. Seriously, though, I'm guessing it has something to do with your b___sts preparing for milk to come in. I had this in my second pregnancy. At the time I thought it was weird, because it felt similar to the letdown I felt while b___stfeeding #1. I was actually a little worried, but everything turned out fine!! Good luck with your baby!!

my only explanation would be the increased blood flow through the b___st?!

I feel that too, in both b___st though at the same time, then it just goes away. It is the weirdest feeling. I'm sooo glad someone else has it because I thought it was so weird and knew for sure no one would know what I was talking about if I described it. Instead of "humming" mine feels like they're freezing up or something weird like that. Like something is taking over them.

Yeah, I told my midwife about it and she looked at me like I had five heads, then I had to explain that it wasn't actually making any noise, it was more of a buzzing feeling. She just put her hand on her chest and siad "thank God, I thought you were going crazy." It was hilarious, but she said it was totally normal.

What's so normal about it? Because it makes me really uncomfortable when it happens. Is it just because our b___st are growing or what?

I guess, they also might be starting to make colostrum, she said.
