OK, so I thought i was going to get lucky and have  my breast look perky and stay the same size that they were or at least go back to my pre pregnancy size.. BOY was i wrong.

 

they not only went small... BUT they went super small....

And to top it off, no joke I have had the worst cramps and my period has been going on for 2 weeks already. Even before i had gotten preg my period never lasted more than 4 days if that.. is that normal?

It's normal. Give it a little time for your body to reset

Is this your first post pregnancy period? It can take a while for your body to regulate, unfortunately.

It's normal. :) You just have to give your body time to get back to normal for you.

It takes a few cycles to regulate. My first few periods were really heavy and longer than usual. It's normal.

You need to give your cycle some time to get back to normal.

My aunt went from a pre-pregnancy C, to a nursing DD, back down to an after-nursing A

If your periods are only 4 days long you should count your lucky stars! My mom's are 10 days long!

Eh I never have had small boobs, well I did when I was 17 .. but now that I am a mom it would be nice to be somewhat attractive with nice boobs and a butt.. I lost everything with this pregnancy!
