Y are my boobs so big already?

Ever since I was about 8-10 weeks pregnant my boobs have gotten big and now at 17 weeks they are huge. I had to actually buy a bigger size bra. With my girls my boobs didn't change at all until I had the kids and by boobs started feeling with milk. That was the only time they changed this time they are so huge. I am use to my small boobs lol so at times when I get dressed for bed my boobs make me so uncomfertable and annoy me, but I don't like to wear a bra to bed either. I still have ways to go. So first of all why is my boobs so big already? Are tehy supose to be like that already? I don't have any milk or anything in them yet either. How can I make myself more comfortable when I can't stand my bobs when I don't wear a bra, but yet they anoy me with one?

  • Mine went from a size C to a size E in about 4 months. Some women just carry more fat cells in their boobs, so that is where the fat goes first.

  • Hmm.. First thing I want to say is, I'm jealous. Second, I have only gone up about a cup size, was an A and now I'm B. I am 32 weeks, so I'm sure they will get a bit bigger once the milk starts coming, I am guessing the hormone levels for you are just through the roof right now, and it's just causing more enlargement. I wouldn't worry about why they are so big, but enjoy it while it lasts! As long as you don't have any pain. And I would definitely get a maternity bra that is really supportive and comfortable. Usually the women working at maternity stores don't mind helping you find the perfect fit that both supports you, and is comfortable!

  • that is wbout the size I was and am now. Actually not to be gross, but my boobs probably would be bigger than that, but my boobs sag lol. It isn't cause I had kids they just always have been like that lol

  • My first pregnancy my boobs got a little bigger. Second time around they got HUGE. I went from a small A to a very full C for most of my pregnancy. When my milk fully came in a day or two after birth...they were easily 3x as big as my baby's head. They looked like Heidi Pratt's boobs. Now a year later and 3 months after stopping BF I' in a B. Although somewhat saggy lol

  • Before pregnancy I was a C cup. I'm now 11 weeks along and I'm a 36E. After only 2.5 months I've gone up 2-3 cup sizes. Everyone's a little different. I have no idea how big they'll get before the end of my pregnancy,and then when my milk comes in.
