  • We have similar boobs! I was a 38 DD before pregnancy too, and I went up to an F within the first trimester. Then by the third they went back to normal (but I also lost a lot of weight while pregnant) and once my son was born they went up one size when my milk came in, and when I stopped breastfeeding they went down to normal.

  • Everyone is different. The average is one cup while pregnant, one when nursing. You tend to go back down after nursing, but it takes time. I went up 2 cup sizes while pregnant and another 2 when nursing. I haven't gone down any, but I nursed for 18 months and I am pregnant again.

  • Let's see, the first time 'round the only real change was when my milk came in. I didn't nurse my first so they went right back to normal no worse for wear.

    During my second pregnancy, I was a 34D normally, I went to a 36DD by the time he was born. I nursed him and stayed a 36F the whole time. I made it back down to a 36D before I got preggo this time, but they aren't so pretty as they used to be lol.

  • oh.. they get bigger after baby if u breast feed.... I started out with a 34c got preg w/#1 went up to a 36dd then after birth was up to a 38F.. I'm now preg with #3 and they are still a 38F...( the size did fluctuate a little between the 3 pregnancies and births) I'm due in a few weeks so I bet they get bigger again when my milk comes in...
