  • After my first pregnancy - I noticed a lump under one of my arms - I was told that this is breast tissue - oh joy! like my boobs are not already big enough!! Even after I lost my pregnancy weight and am now at my ideal weight - I still have a slight bump under one of my arms :( oh well - nothing to worry about - just realize now that my monthly breast exams should include your arm pits as well... :)
