You should get a fitting done. Your probably more like a 40 H or I. If your wearing a store 36 ddd, your probably not in a good bra.

They won't go away for a while! Mine start to "defalte" around the 6 month mark.

You're the same size I am. I can usually get back to a 34 or 36C when baby is about 2 years old and nursing a lot less. It really does mean a variety of bra and top sizes. I'm normally a small/medium top, but need a large/x-large to accommodate my chest!

For me, I've gone from consecutive nursing to pregnancy 3 times so I've never really gotten smaller.

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?

Hugs to you! I told my friends that I feel like a "bobble tittie", instead of one of those bobble-head dolls ... ya know! I've been on the hunt for more nursing tanks, since the ones I have are seriously too small.

Mine never did. With ds1 I was a 38D prepreggo and went to a 40DDD. I lost 50 lb and weaned ds and went to a 38DDD/F. I am busting out of my 38G bras right now and am getting a fitting on Wednesday.

I have been ether PG or nursing for almost 6 years now , so I am not sure when to tell you they will get smaller. Mine go down about 1/2 a cup size when my kids start on solids. I started at a 36 C when I got pg almost 6 years ago and now I am a 36 G, so all I can say is learn to love your new look, you will get use to them, I have. :
