I was super sore in the beginning (my first sign of pg), but.....nothing since then. No growth, no colostrum, nothing. I'm getting a TINY bit more tender these last few days--maybe something's happening??! I thought from what I've heard that I would have grown by now...just wondering if I should hold out a bit longer to figure out size before I buy some nursing bras/tanks.

Did they grow during the 1st tri? Mine grew then, but nothing since then. During the last few weeks I've leaked a tiny bit, but not much.

All the advice I've gotten is to hold off on buying nursing bras until after baby's born... check out this thread:

HTH!

I also haven't really grown since the first trimester and definately no leaking of any sort yet. Normal though for some mamas from what my midwife says.

No change in size at all. If anything, they've gotten smaller since I stopped nursing completely at 16 weeks.
There's colostrum if I try to squeeze it out. And I'm much darker & wider brown in the middles, but that's the only change. Never any pain.

From what I've read, your breasts won't change much in size in the last month. Mine haven't changed since 1st trimester (size wise) which is a relief as I'm now a 40DD.

A friend of mine waited until afterwards and wished she'd had at least 1-2 on hand. It was a pain to have her mom go out and buy a few and bring them home and then send her back for a different size/style and so forth.

Nope, I didn't really grow even at the beginning of the pregnancy.

Mine have gotten smaller too. I weaned dd around 18wk though I do have colostrum if I squeeze too. I have to say that I've been enjoying the smaller softer boobs

With my first pregnancy, my breasts never grew, leaked, or were sore at all.

Jam 7, Peanut Butter 5, and Bread 2.

1st pg, my breasts were ICONIC, gloriously full C cups.

This time around, not much tenderness or growth. Went from "deflated" B cup to normal B cup, and now a little bit fuller than I've been since DS nightweaned two years ago.
