Engorged Breast - 36 weeks preggy

Hi

I was hospitalised 2 days ago for Pre- Term labour, my doc put me on meds to stop contractions and steriods to help with babies lungs. Since then I have been back home getting lots of bed rest. This morning I noticed that both my breats are engorged and extremely painful. Could this be the result of the meds and how can I ease this pain.

This is probably just the natural course of events with the milk starting to come in. You could try cold cabbage leaves. These often help.
