  • i went from 36C to 36 DD after i had my son... and they stayd that big... my guess is cause i only breast fed for the first month with him.... and im prego number two and now im in DDD and they dont fit me right... sucks... hoping they'll go down and this time round breast feeding will be more successfull. the 2nd time around should be easier though cause youve done it before and you know what to expect...
    good luck sweety and congrats!

  • Really it just depends. With my first pregnancy I was HUGE, I had Dolly Parton boobs throughout pregnancy and afterwards, it was kind of embarrassing LOL

    With my second pregnancy, Nothing. I barely got any bigger until the day my milk came in, I'm back to pre child size and haven't changed.

    This third pregnancy, I'm having some mild discomfort while nursing the other baby, but otherwise, no size changes or anything.

    Also, the second time I started nursing, I had NO pain at all. I was so thrilled, with my first I was in constant pain while nursing for the first 6 weeks, it was simply awful. I had expected the same, but was pleasantly surprised to avoid it. :)

  • I have to agree with WillDoDa! My first pregnancy I had footballs on my chest continuing until I finished Breastfeeding. With my second, I only swelled a little when my milk came in and then it was gone. First baby had a hell of a time, cracked, bleeding, bad latch, crying (both of us, lol), second baby was a breeze comparitively! Remember, you have a heads up this time around, you've done this before and should remember what to do and not to do. Good Luck with your new baby!
