Has anyone's boobies just not really grown?

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?

Hey there! Mine are still pretty small too. :(
I was barely an A before and now I'm fitting a B but there is definitely room in the cups. I was totally thinking I was going to be rocking at least a C cup by now. I'm trying to enjoy the Bs though since I've never really known what it's like to have breasts and these make me feel more womanly.

I'll be interested to hear what other women on here have to say and if I can look forward to growing anymore.
FX for both of us.

I wouldn`t wish for it if i was you!!! Mine were big before but now they are massive!!! They are heavy and uncomfortable, and i`m scared they will never go back to normal lol. They are so heavy they constrict my chest and make breathing difficult, i have to wear support all the time.
Mine grew straight away, but i know from other ladies that some just don`t. And apparently it has no relevance to milk production, i`d lovely little boobies : )

I`m no expert, but i have read on here that it has no relevance, and found this for you:

"The size of a woman's breasts is mostly determined by how much fatty tissue they contain. But this tissue doesn't have anything to do with the quantity or quality of her breast milk.A nursing mom's breasts do get larger as they fill with milk — and even during pregnancy, as her mammary glands prepare for the job ahead. But the amount of milk she produces is dictated by her baby.
It's a nifty system: If a baby sucks more, her mom produces more milk. If a baby sucks less, Mom's milk production drops off."

Ha and yes don`t wish for things.......

Breast size definitely has nothing to do with milk production. Also, don't freak if you don't leak etc at the end of your pregnancy. I didn't leak every last pregnancy and I had a better supply than I did with my other kids. Mine didn't really grow last pregnancy. I went from a D to DD. I've not noticed any changes at all this time around buy my daughter just weaned a few weeks ago. Before I had kids I had an A cup but I put on a substantial amount of weight over the past 16yrs too. When I'm 120 and under I am a full C.

With my first two the girls did NOTHING special lol. At all. It wasn't until the milk came in after having them and they were HUGE! Like have their own zip code huge! But then they went down.. and stayed down... very sad lol.
With this one they hurt right away.. like 6-8 dpo until about last week. And they hurt at the end of the day still. I'm getting stretch marks on them. They aren't the same... the left one is OUT.OF.CONTROL. DH calls it the "monster" lol.

But yeah I don't think there's any time where they do or do not get huge... just depends.

I totally hear you! I'm the same way. I have to plan. However, I did go and buy some nursing bras the night before surgery... by the time I got to using them they didn't fit... because I didn't anticipate they would get so flipping huge lol. So it might be a good thing to shop after (and just plan to shop after for the purpose of sizing). Either that or you could always get a couple sizes that you think you might be... keep tags on and receipts and then return what doesn't fit later. :)

Mine are not noticeably bigger. I keep waiting expecting my bras not to fit of for them to look like they've grown and nothing is happening. I think dh is a little disappointed :-). I'm 16 weeks.

Glad to hear it has nothing to do with milk production!

I'm in my third trimester now and have had the same breast size throughout pregnancy. I am a D cup and was expecting them to get bigger. They are sensitive and full but same size. So I'm holding off on buying nursing bras until after my milk comes in.
With ds1, I was thinner and had a B cup which expanded to a D.

Lurking...I've now had three kids and my boobs stayed exactly the same through all three pregnancies and after. Never had to change bra size. But I also didn't produce any milk, so I'd say my situation was not typical. My ta-tas simply don't participate in pregnancy!

Going on 21 weeks and my boobs are the same size too. The only thing that has changed is that my nipples are darker and bigger.

I'm so happy that I'm not the only one, I'm not quite at second trimester yet but haven't really noticed sayn change. They're a bit sore and sometimes I think the aureolas might be bigger but then I think It's in my head...

Mine didnt change with the first pg, and havent so far with this one. Once my milk came in however, they got to porn star proportions. Not attractive mind you . . . all veiny and stretch marky, but HUGE and quite painful. They literally felt like they were going to explode!
