Anyone else have breasts that seem to think this pregnancy belly thing is a competition?<br><br>
I had a pretty impressive chest to start with and it wasted no time in developing even further. But every time I feel like my belly is starting to protrude and show a bit more, my breasts seem to expand in response.<br><br>
I'm already out of all the bras I own and am sporting a camisoled uni-boob look. I'm starting to wish that people could tell I was pregnant, but I remember with my last that didn't happen until 9 months because my breasts seem determined to be on the other side of the finish line.<br><br><br>
Hoping to post to the belly pic thread as soon as I can get my partner to take some pics. Seems I don't have any mirrors I use to take my own in our new house.

I wish. I have a pretty standard C cup to begin with, and until my milk comes in, it really doesn't change. Dh thinks they get bigger, but it's only because I lose weight in my first tri so my ribcage fat goes away, making them look bigger. The lady at Motherhood the other day asked me if I needed new bras and I laughed. I said I wasn't fortunate enough to have them grow at all. It's the belly and butt show here.

My D's lost the battle a while ago. Although, the belly makes them look like B's. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

After nursing my first babe, my DD's went to C's - they are finally back up to a D. I am afraid they will disappear altogether once I am done nursing this one! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Mine didn't grow with pregnancy #2 so I didn't think they would this time. Oh how wrong I was. Mine are huge and they weren't small to begin with.

with my 1st I went from a 32B to a 32DD - and stayed there straight thru #2 untill this past summer. Now I'm a 32C.<br>
(at 12.5 week I am still a 32C<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> apparently my boobs didn;t get the "swell up" message this time around.)<br><br>
With #1 I didn;t show untill 6 months.<br><br>
With #2 I was shoeing at 8 weeks.<br><br>
Now with #3 I show if I'm naked, otherwise I'm still in my pre-pregnancy 6's.<br><br><br><br>
no boobs.. no belly... I still keep the positive POS next to the sink so I know I'm pregnant and not just suffering form Dysentary. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I have never had the priviliage of growth, with the exception of the engorgement period that lasts only a few days. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Oh, well, I guess that will ensure that my belly stands out more.

I'm still nursing, so mine have shrunk, not gotten bigger. I still fit in my 36DD's, althought the band is already starting to get snug, and I haven't even gained any weight yet!

No! My boobs havent grown at all this time, and i can barely fill out a B cup to begin with. Life is so unfair <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

mine have grown at about the same rate as my belly. however, the belly is starting to win out i think! i'm still an a cup, but at least i'm not a saggy baggy a. there's substance there! lol i actually bought a new bra last night, still in an a. i think i might get up to a b, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.<br><br>
i used to be a nice full c cup with the other two(and before). i think dd nursed every single last bit of booby fat out of them though in her almost 3.5 years of nursing. lol<br><br>
she actually asked me yesterday about the baby eating, "mom, what will the baby eat?" i said it will be nursing, just like she did. she came back with "but mom, remember when i nursed, and nursed, and nursed, and nursed, and then all the milk was gone?" i told her that when the baby is almost here i will get lots of milk again. she got so excited and asked "so does that mean you will get really big boobies again???!?" i said probably a bit biger and she yelled and put her hands in the air and said "horray!!! big boobies!!!!!!!" lol silly girl.... dh agreed with her though and did the same....

I have an UNimpressive chest <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> which at least now isn't looking quite so flat. My belly is winning by a longshot.

I thought with each consecutive pg the change was not as dramatic.....but man! This is pg #3 and I am pretty sure I've gone up about 2 cup sizes already! I think the boobs are actually winning - which is hard because my belly is really competing as well! LOL<br>
I had to go to admitting at our hospital yesterday (I had a telehealth teleconference with a geneticist from out of town) but when I went in there the girl was like "Oh, up to maternity i assume?" I was like - do I look so big that I am ready to give birth at only 12 weeks??? Sigh.
