I think it's because I was sexually abused as a child and it involved my breasts but I never could shake the feeling with my oldest and I've done so much therapy already and it hasn't helped at all. I jsut can never shake the creepy kind of shameful feeling like I don't have control over what happens to my body parts.
Did anybody else deal with this? and is it just hopeless to try with future kids? What worked for you? Please nobody else say that you just have to push past it.
