My areolas are gianormous as well- do they ever shrink back down?

I've kinda conceded defeat that my 30 year old body will never return to my 20 year old shape.

I just like that mine are feeling nice and round again after "deflating" around the time my son turned 1!

I'm pretty sure my boobs are set on world domination. They're out of control, already spilling out of the nursing bras I wore after DD was born.

And they weren't small to being with. I'd definitely call this too much of a good thing.

My boobs haven't gotten any bigger (the only pregnancy "symptom" I was kind of excited for), but they do LEAK a LOT and have been since before I even got to the 2nd trimester!!! This symptom is kind of annoying. We just got a new mattress before we found out we were pregnant and the warranty is void if there is any liquid staining. This is my first baby, too. Guess after reading this I can feel some comfort that at least they haven't changed in size/shape

Yeah, I don't really need more boobage, either. I was down to about a 32E/D (I was 32F at peak nursing size). I do like the less sagging, though.

mine have huge areolas, are stretched, too soft and completely responsive to gravity.
But I am proud of them. Everyone in our house seems to love them: my 2 sons and my DH! soon there will be a forth person that will adore them!
but the rest of the society will define them as ''ugly''. That's OK, I don't show my boobs to the rest of the society!

They will be missed.

The boobs... such a sensitive topic for me. I loved my boobs. I was a 34 D (almost DD), they were so nice and full but perky and awesome.. and now.. well, they are huge and saggy and getting ready for nursing. I know that is what they are supposed to be for, but... I am grieving the death of my partners in crime. Goodbye, lovely breasts. Jerry and I will miss you, but your memory will always live on. RIP funbags.

I think it's interesting others are getting saggier boobs, since I feel like mine are more perky now than they were in their post-infant-nursing state. I've never been a huge admirer of my own boobs, so I'm mostly okay with it. dh just thinks the bigger the better, and doesn't really seem to care about other factors so much. Which is good, or he'd get a punch in the face.

Ditto - both not plumping much and leaking WAY ahead of schedule. Does anyone have suggestions for nipple pads they particularly like?

The night that I conceived I had a dream that I was watching dark blue veins spread across my breasts and chest and that's how I knew I was pregnant. It proved to be prophetic, because they are SO veiny (although it didn't really start until several weeks in, so I definitely knew I was pregnant first ) This is my first pregnancy, and what really surprised me is how fast they started growing. I went up a cup size, from a 36B to 36C, within a few weeks. I'm loving them -- especially because they're not ridiculously sensitive as they were in the first trimester -- but I'm sure the saggy-ness is yet to come

I'm just now getting around to reading this thread--you mamas crack me up. I'm trying to savor my boobs right now, because they are finally not full of milk anymore. I forgot how hardy they are when they're not actively lactating... I've spent the last 3+ years shielding them from the slightest bump.

I can't wait for my new little nursling, of course. This time I'm going to take a picture on the day my milk comes in.
