bOOb question

How big did your boobs get while breast feeding your LO? The book that my doctor gave me says that the size of my boobs in the last few weeks of my pregnancy are going to be the same size after having the baby and that is how I will know what size nursing bra to get.

I was surprised. Its been 15 yrs since my last but I remember my boobs getting way bigger after birth. And if this is true, my boobs will not go up in size at all because my boobs are the same size they have always been and im 35 weeks.

It's probably different for everyone.  I'm 38 weeks and I have only gone one cup size so I'm not expecting to grow anymore, but we'll see I guess.

Mine got bigger right after birth because of the engorgement and my body trying to figure out how much milk it needed, they've calmed down a lot and are about the same size as the end of my pregnancy.

I was a 34B before having kids. I went up to a 36C with DD then a 34D with DS. I'm now pregnant with #3. I'm still a 34D but my bras are getting tight. I'm only 13 weeks. I do remember my boobs got much bigger once my milk came in but I couldn't breastfeed successfully so it didn't last long.
