Should i be concerned that my boobs haven't grown? Or that they aren't even the slightest bit sore and haven't been at all. With DS they were ever so sore and huge even within the first month after I found out I was pregnant. I had some problem with milk supply with DS, should I be concerned or does this just come on later with second pregnancies?? I know eveyone is different but I'm just curious. So glad to have other mama's to ask these sort of things to...

This is my third baby, nursed both my boys until age 3 & 4 respectively- I'm not sore except every once in a while when Dh suddenly pinches me
:... but only my nipple. It's not even all the time. They haven't grown, IMO, they aren't sore, or blue-veined, or heavy....

I'm not worried.

I read somewhere that breast changes are more pronounced in the first pg than in subsequent ones.

Mine have grown a little, and the nipples are a little sore and sensitive, but not much else. Actually, when I was pg with dd, I don't think they really "sprouted" till I was around four or five months along. And I had plenty of milk for her, so I don't think it is a concern.

Other than a little nipple sensitivity, my breast haven't changed at all since getting pregnant. They're like, "oh, right, milk. We already do that. No changes needed."

Dangit! I want pregnant boobs!

OP, I have the same exact situation as you; first pregnancy the boobs outgrew my clothes before my belly did and they were oh so screaming sore! I was leaking colostrum at like 6 weeks. It was crazy. This pregnancy, I was surprised to be pregnant because they are feeling very "normal".
....My MIL jokes that they are exhausted from what they did with my son--they were unbelievably huge!!!-and that they're still resting. I'm not worried about my milk, I know it will come with the baby does. HTH.

My first pregnancy my boobs didn't grow or hurt at all. My areolas changed color but that's it. After my dd was born my boobs doubled in size and I got my only stretch marks after she was born there.

This pregnancy my boobs are hurting horribly. It's a lot different than the first time around.

I think after you nurse a baby, your boobs react different when you get pregnant. I nursed dd for 13 1/2 months, took 5 months off, then got pregnant with ds. With him, I didn't notice any fullness or soreness until 11 weeks into my pregnancy. This time, ds weaned at 16 months, just five days before I found out I was pregnant with our little surprise! My boobs finally got back to their normal post bfing droopy selves a few weeks ago. I don't think I'll see them start to inflate again until 12 weeks-ish.
