Large Breasts

The affectionately named "honeymoon trimester". Your belly is getting bigger and you start to feel your first baby kicks. Are you having a boy or a girl?

Large Breasts

Okay, so, I'm going to be frank. I started out with a 36D chest...am I to expect my breasts to grow much more? Also, will this hinder a noticeable baby bump?

I was a 36D when I got pregnant with #4. The largest my breast got last time was a 38E when my milk first came in and once my supply regulated I went to a DD. Your bump will still be very noticeable and your breasts won't seem quite so large by the time the end comes because the belly will overshadow everything else lol. Each pregnancy was different for me with breast growth. With my first pregnancy I went from a 32A to a 34F. Breast deflated to a 34C then when I got pregnant the second time I went from a C to E. Stayed a D cup from there on out once my milk dried up. I probably won't see much change this time around because I'm still nursing. It's different for everyone though. Some women don't grow a lot up top and some grow by leaps and bounds.

I'm afraid of them getting to an abnormal size!! I already have trouble shopping for shirts, because I have to choose between fitting my torso and fitting my breasts. It sucks. I'm afraid that I will become so large that I will need specialty bras on top of it!!

I am currently 15 weeks, 3 days. I had to get new bras, but they're a little big. I would say I am between 36D and 36DD.

Wow!! I bought new bras, but they're big, it seems like they're too big, but my old bras are too small!

I started out at a 40DD, and I'm still wearing the same size at 39w1d. My boobs feel a little heavier/fuller but didn't actually increase in size. I don't know if or how big they may get after birth and when my milk comes in though.

As far as baby bump, I don't think the boobs hid the bump at all. In fact, I think my boobs look almost small compared to the bump, and I actually don't have that big of a bump. Everyone is surprised that I'm so far along even though my fundal height has measured either spot on or up to a week bigger. It may help that I'm fairly tall (5 foot 8) and have a fairly well proportioned hourglass figure, so I've got room in my torso for her to go up & down rather than poking out so much in front like my smaller friends.

Bazil, thanks! I haven't heard anyone say that their breasts didn't get way bigger! So far, I'm 16 weeks, and I haven't changed a whole cup size yet. I hope I will be like you! So far, they do just feel fuller and heavier. I haven't seen a great deal of change, so here's hoping. :) Thanks so much for the insight :)

You're welcome! I was also really surprised that I didn't get any bigger. I did notice new glandular tissue with the heaviness, so I'm thinking that maybe the glands just replaced the fat tissue instead of adding to it. That may be where the 15 pounds I lost in the first trimester went, lol!

I read somewhere that they will pretty much stop growing by the second trimester and then after the birth they may swell from milk engorgement (which if you nurse really often you may not have trouble with that).

Hi!
When my pregnancy started, I started out at a 34-36DD.
I was really worried about them getting bigger and they really haven't.

I don't have perky boobs to begin with, but now they are fuller. So, they kind of "filled in" if that makes sense. I bought 38 DD bras, but they are kind of too big for me.

Everyone is different. I'm pretty glad mine didn't grow. I was/am worried about breastfeeding as I hope this is not a sign that I won't be able to.

I wouldn't worry about it MrsPih1024. The size of breasts really makes no difference to success at breastfeeding. As long as you have the glandular tissue, you will do just fine. It's super rare to have insufficient glandular tissue. In fact, it's only in countries like the US that women seem to have this issue, and I think that it's overdiagnosed because we just don't have the support to know when/how to breastfeed and how to fix any issues. In other countries where breastfeeding in public is the norm and seen all the time, moms don't seem to have much trouble and if they do, they can just turn to the woman next to them to get help. Here many women don't know how to BF and just end up giving up thinking they were a failure or had a problem when it was probably just that they weren't nursing often enough, long enough, or the baby had a poor latch (often due to positioning).
