Let's talk BOOBS = ) - Page 2

post #21 of 26


My boobs hurt!  When DS nurses, which I've been trying like hell to distract him from, it sometimes feels like he's gnawing on my nipples :(

And I can't face the showerhead, feels like needles.

Uh... just wanted to ask... what would boiling pee do?  Concentrate the hormones to test or something?  It's hilarious, I just wonder where the idea came from.

Yeah...that was the idea.  Someone suggested it on the One thread.  Although I guess technically I tried not to boil it but just to heat it.  For the record, it didn't work - totally denatured the protein, didn't see anything on the test.  Putting the urine in the freezer until it was about 1/3 frozen was slightly more successful, as in there was a line, but I still don't think it would have shown up sooner.

 

Ok back to boobs.  ;)

LOL!   I keep doing the above, and asking DH if they're bigger.   Finally, we were DTD over the weekend and afterwards, first thing he said was, "Boobs are definitely bigger."   I'm a 36C normally, and I've generally been wearing sports bras b/c they feel better.   Haven't grown out of my regular bras yet, but they're getting less effective!



LOL, I have been doing the same. I am normally a 36 C and just got measured at 38D and even that doesnt feel like its going to hold me for much longer! This morning I asked DH "How are the boobs, hows the belly?" and he said "Pretty huge, and pretty big." I said (since its mostly just a food belly protruding) "Im not quite ready for the pretty huge comment about the belly yet." lol...a few more months maybe???

Not so sore (thank goodness!), but have gone from a C to a DD and climbing. Oy vey! I mostly wear a sports bra these days, although I did manage to dig out an old bra from college that actually fits! ...obviously my shape has changed a lot in 10 years.

I have worn about a 30 E-F for the last few years--have bras in both sizes and sometimes one fits a little better and sometimes the other. (That size is not as big as it sounds, but I am quite slender and was making myself miserable in a 34DD until I realized the band size was too big.) They have not grown that much so far. I fit better into the larger bras that I have than into the smaller ones. They're all kind of stretched out and I've been fastening them on the tightest hook, so there's room to grow in the ribcage area if necessary. I'm not entirely sure if a band size will change with pregnancy--does the rib cage get affected? Anyway, more than being simply bigger they are definitely fuller and more tender now.

Erigeron! I wanted to pass on a site since you're a big-little-girl like me (I wear 32G right now). biggerbras.com - ever since I properly fitted myself and realized I was well above the standard shopping range, I've bought all my bras there. Great selection, price, styles, regular sales and they have a nursing/maternity section. They allow you to shop by size, too! Super awesome. :)

 

Edited to add: Your band size will absolutely change during pregnancy as your ribcage expands, particularly if you're that tiny. Mine went up a full four or five inches last time even though I gained no weight on that part of my body. It will go back down to normal pretty fast, though.

When you're fitting yourself for a bra properly (the five measurement method) ensure that the bra size you buy is fitted perfectly on the middle clasp. That will give you enough stretch either way for slight weight gain and pregnancy. Maternity and nursing bras are built to give extra stretch, so buy in your normal size. :) If you're a 30 now you'll probably fit 30-32, but I'd double check by recalculating with the five measurement method to ensure a perfect fit, then check the brand/size charts before you order anything. Almost all lingerie places (except in some areas of Europe) do not employ trained fitters, so don't go by what they told you!!
