Disclaimer: The breasts can change during pregnancy and be perfectly normal but if you are at all concerned talk to your doctor.

Take care, Ladies.

Thanks for sharing! My mother had breast cancer at a young age, so this is something I worry about a lot. So far, my breasts haven't changed at all, but I'm watching and waiting!

Breastfeeding can actually help prevent cancer. The longer you breastfeed for the more protected you become. It doesn't mean that if you breastfeed that you can't get cancer, it just means that it lessens the risks of getting it

I've read that. I'm planning on breastfeeding, but my mother breastfed both of her kids, and still got it, so I'm not banking on that saving me.

I heard of a young mom with 4 kids who breastfed all of them for over a year and still got breast cancer.  I know it does help, I just wished it would help more.
