Ummm ... I was in the shower last night and looked down only to see that where in last week or so my lefty has def been fuller than right yesterday it was probably a whole cup size larger and still is! Will my right one catch up? Is this par for the course? I find it funny and mildly weird. Anyone else have this happen in early preg?

My left breast is much bigger than my right. I attribute it to the constant use of my right arm. The right pecs are more toned. But that doesn't really make sense!

Haha! Well at least I'm not alone! I hope I can breastfeed fine with both! Maybe the righty is slow to catch up!

Probably a hormone surge. You might do some yoga stretches to help balance your body and keep lymphatic stuff flowing. Sounds harmless for now, but definitely keep paying attention. Good luck!

My right breast is almost a full cup size larger than my left, but it's always that way. I'll be interested to see if there is a noticeable difference in milk production between the two (one way or the other).

Breasts are usually not the same size but maybe pregnancy hormones are making it more obvious for you now. I have the same thing and unfortunately they have stayed that way, just not super obvious. I can tell that one breast doesn't fill up my bra cup as much as the other.

Left breast larger here too:)  I think that I once read that it's quite common--in particular to have a larger left breast.  I understand that it's unnerving though.  I actually looked back at old pre-baby pictures once and actually saw the difference in those.  I never noticed until after weaning.  But, here we are again, and the left one is in the running thumb.gif   Seriously though, one breast can have more glandular tissue than the other.  In pregnancy, the glandular tissue develops and so you might notice more of a difference.

Thanks BailyB and starflower3.  Ironically today the rightie seems to be 'filling in' more.  LOL! 

Starflower, you are pregnant again? If so congrats!! How far along are you?
