The ones on our chests, not the male variety.

My boobs feel like they grew two cups sizes overnight. I've lost weight and still - there they are not fitting into any of my bras or shirts. I tried putting on one of my jogging bras this morning which is what I've been relying on, but even it started driving me crazy after less than five minutes. I think I'm going to have to put a jacket on over my tee shirt and head to the nearest department store or something. I feel like I'm touching my breasts every ten seconds!

Also, this may be a bit TMI but here goes anyway: I can't stand to have DF touch them at all, haven't for about a week now. At first it was just uncomfortable so I'd move his hands elsewhere. Now I swear I can feel it when he's looking at them. I know he can't help it - they're HUGE, but still. The pain, dear Lord, the pain.

Well..... I'm one of the very few whose boobs don't grow during pregnancy. And I'm currently a 34almostA. Ok, they did get to a nice full A with my second. No change at all with my first, and no signs of change this time.
Although with my first two, they were super sore! I hated DH to touch hem even after the soreness went away with #1. Now, after it went away with #2.... it because a SUPER errogenous zone for me (never really was before) and remains like that today! Very odd! The ouchies went away after the first trimester both times, so hopefully your DF will be able to enjoy them soon!

I'm a full 32-B, verging on C. Or I was at least. My boobs have always seemed even bigger than they really are considering how small I am (5' feet tall, usually hovering somewhere around 100 pounds), but now I feel like a porn star. It's crazy. I know I'm probably over-reacting, but that's how it feels to me.

I did get a big chuckle out of you saying that the pain went away after the first trimester, so perhaps after that my DF "will be able to enjoy them soon." I'm so going to tell him that! (Another TMI warning: I'd like him to be able to enjoy them so, too. They've always been one of my erogenous zones.)

I went from an E to an F last pregnancy. Let me tell you how fun it is to find a giant yet supportive nursing bra that doesn't cost a million dollars. It looks like they'll be growing again this time. I'm starting to get a muffin top in my bra, or, as I like to call it, double boob.

I can feel your pain on the touching stuff. With DS I could not stand them being touched. I couldn't even stand to sleep with no bra on because of the way it felt when they brushed against fabric. There was a no touching the boobs rule for months. I do remember it lasting until maybe halfway through the 2nd trimester. This time, I'm not really having much pain. They just feel a little sore when I take my bra off.

at the double boob

So ... I haven't worn a bra except for exercising since I stopped wearing nursing bras about 2 years ago.



I don't even know what size I wear now, or what styles the kids are wearing now a days.

My boobs have always kinda just been there. They got a little more erogenous after DD's birth, but usually I can hardly feel anything nippleage wise. In the last week though, my nipples are sore when DD nurses, just a little less than hurty than when I had mastitis. Or, actually a lot less hurty. Mastitis was a . Oh, and my double shirt method doesn't cut it anymore. My nipples are just waaaay too out there.

LOL @ double boob. I had that going on and had to go up a size. I couldn't stand it anymore. Every time I bent over they fell out the top of the bra. Awkward!

Alright...so here it is... I was a 38DDD...yes i meant to put three... Before I was pregnant. I went up a full cup size every trimester, including the 4th. I am currently sitting at a 38 I...yes I.... I am currently still nursing. My fear is that I will increase more. Then where the heck would i find a bra... I already have to travel an hr to get fittedand locate a bra and they only have 2 options for me. It SUCKS!

Has anyone nursed during a pregnancy and increased more? Or did you stay the same?

i don't remember when my boobs got big. i think it was more in second tri. anyway, my boobs are still deflated and national geographic style saggy from breastfeeding. i call them "empty balloon sacks".

one thing i do remember is that when my boobs did get sore, they'd even hurt from the cold air of the freezer aisle in the grocery store. embarrassing!

hoping for a !

So I went shopping before I picked DF's best friend's 8-year-old son (that's a mouthful) up to get dinner and go see a movie. We had a wonderful time (I love that kid, he's such great little guy) but the whole time in my head I've been going over the bra fitting from earlier.

From a 32B to a 34C in a matter of weeks? You have got to be kidding me! I've lost weight for crying out loud!

I am not looking forward to engorgement after the birth, let me tell you.

My 42F bra is already starting to feel tight. I really do not want to have to go buy new ones yet. Last pregnancy I went up about a cup and a half.

My boobs are slightly fuller, but it's barely noticeable - I can't really see a difference, but I can feel it when I put my bra on. I'm a 34DD so I'm not looking forward to getting bigger! Also, my nipples are tender and the areolas are larger.

I don't wear bras. That being said, I bought an extra large sundress at Wal Mart(cause local small town shipping is SOO hip, *haha*)... It put it on and my boobs were absolutely falling OUT! No fair! That was supposed to be my preggo clothing splurge! Dangit. Anyway, I always get big jahoobies when I am pregnant. I love it. I guess it is the firmness that I love... After breastfeeding two babies, the girls are just not as full as they used to be. So I like the teenager-boob feeling.

I have been pretty sensitive... Almost to the point of pain. But the nips are a big erogenous zone for me... So I'm just telling DH to be gentle. It only took getting smacked away a time or two. *haha*

ETA: The national geographic saggy! ROFLMAO!! I soo feel you honey!
