Painful.

I'd like a C cup... D at most. I remember being a C cup back in 4th grade and I hated it lol... I'd love to have that back though because they just kept growing from there :(

I thought it was funny. I think the media just likes to get their panties in a bunch about things that make no difference. I mean, really. What impact does that have on anyone else's life that she was doing that? Personally, I think it's being used as fodder for the judgemental folks out there. She's already been under fire for being vegan during pregnancy and raising her kid that way, so she's already labeled as some kind of hippie weirdo. 

 

I remember seeing an article not long ago that had photos of some celebrity moms breastfeeding in public. The article was blasting them and saying how inappropriate that was and all that crap. wtf. It is 2012, right?

Yeah, that's what my usual size is, too. I'm up to a 38C already, though. My breasts feel heavy even at this size!

I'm pretty sure most of my weight gain this time is in my chest!  Last time (preg #1) nothing happened to them & I was worried I wouldn't be able to nurse the baby.  This time, they are ready to go!!  And, they are itchy - it is driving me nuts.  It's not like you can just randomly reach in & itch your boob whenever - especially in public.  I also have itchy belly, palms, & soles of my feet.  I think I need more lotion!!

lol... mine usually don't fill up like this until after baby's born, but I think starting this pregnancy breastfeeding, and getting pregnant much sooner than I did any other time may have affected it. It's only been in the past couple weeks that they ballooned up (before then I was enjoying my "flat" boobs... which is to say they were far from flat, but compared to now, they were quite deflated!)

I'm normally a 36D, probably (was a B until I think I got pg the first time); I've had to get a bra expander so I'm probably up to a 38 and no idea about the cup size--at least a DD! I don't think people think of me as big-chested (I'm fairly petite otherwise, especially on top, though a little bit overweight), so it's still bizarre to me that I'm a DD, which I used to imagine was Dolly Parton-sized :)

 

I tend to have oversupply, but haven't really been engorged either time and don't have too much problem with leakage either, lucky me. I've been noticing lately that they're not only bigger but also so VEINY! Wow.

post #108 of 112

I admit - I was kind of excited to see them getting bigger once this pregnancy started; I wasn't too thrilled with the shrunken post-BFing boobs!  But, the little ones were a lot more comfortable!  Something else I've noticed related to chest size:  if my bra or shirt is too tight, it leads to heartburn!  If I change shirts or take off the bra, the heartburn goes away.  At least I can make it go away!

 

I'm also starting to get full from eating easily these days.  I thought this would hold off a while until later in the 3rd trimester.  Nope - I feel like no matter what I eat, I'm full.  So, I want to eat (I still feel hungry) but have no room to put anything!  Sweets are starting to bother me again too - except for ice cream.  I want to eat ice cream all day long. :)  I'm already looking forward to the first postpartum weeks when my appetite will (hopefully) be huge & there will be room to put the food!

 

Anyone else notice that their leg hair is not growing as much as before?  I used to shave my legs often, daily in the summer or if I wanted to wear a skirt/dress.  Lately, I can go almost a week without needing to shave!  It's pretty nice, especially with summer coming.  I can't remember if this happened last pregnancy - but I think there's an "old wives' tale" attached to it about the gender of the baby!

Funny that you mentioned about leg hair. I used to shave about once a week in the winter, 2-3 times in the summer if I'm wearing shorts and skirts/dresses. I hadn't shaved my legs in over a month until this morning. I don't really notice an abundance of leg hair, so maybe it's not growing as much? It wasn't really bothering me, either, I just felt like I should shave this morning since it's been so long. It's more for DP than for me. I could care less right now to be honest. I have a feeling I'll be rocking the hairy legs after the baby comes anyway, may as well get used to it now! 

 

Wouldn't it be nice if along with extra head hair falling out our leg hair would fall out after delivery, too? That would be kind of awesome.

My hair is growing like crazy! I can usually go pretty long between shaves usually... but man, it's every 2 days no matter what now. And not because it's just itchy or whatever but because it's seriously long enough other people notice it.

If it's connected to baby gender I'd have to say I'm definitely having a boy, since I remember my last two pregnancies, both due in summer (july and mid september) i almost NEVER had to shave and they were both girls. I don't remember with my son, but I don't think I shaved at all anyway, he was born in January and I never wore anything but pants.

Body hair growth is such a strange phenomenon! Totally off topic, but when my mom had chemotherapy, she lost the hair all over her body and head, but didn't lose any of the hair that grows above her lip! How frustrating is that?

 

I have become more comfortable with waxing over the past few years, but when I was in labor with my first (DS) I took a shower and shaved my legs. When I got to the hospital, I was 8cm and fully effaced and was fully dilated within an hour or so. Later on, I read that showers help people in labor progress. (Physiological and/or Psychological?) I know everyone is big on birth tubs, but try a shower first!

my moms favorite part about chemo (because you have to find a silver lining or it drives you crazy, right?) was never needing to shave. Her second favorite part was no longer getting her period (since she was long done having kids, early menopause was a huge plus for her)
