5 weeks pregnant and boobs are massive! (And sore..)
I'm on my third and as usual within 12 weeks, my boobs ballooned from 34F to 34/36 HH they are likely to stay this way as well until baby is born/finished breast feeding. I am not planning on breastfeeding so they normally go down almost straight away. I was wearing maternity bras (non wired) with my first as you are told to, but they were so big they do not offer the right support and don't separate, I soon developed problems. A well known online bra company for nbigger boobs recommended I go straight back to underwire but with proper fitting, most of the women who worked there and were pregnant did. I only wear non wired in bed. I would say anyone above a D cup still needs well fitting underwired.
Yep completely normal. The size should stop going up soon hopefully. Invest in a good non-underwired bra if they're particularly sore. I got this one and it was the only thing that stopped me feeling like my boobs had been used as footballs for the entire day. And congratulations
mine had a huge growth spurt at around that time, i'm 19+6 now and theyve not grown too much for quite a few weeks, handy hint, asda George do quite big and relatively comfy bras for £4 so i figure if they only last a couple of weeks then it's not too bad
Got my BFP last week (first pregnancy, nervous and excited!) and am 5 weeks along but my boobs are incredibly sore and have grown about 3 cup sizes already. Is this likely to last?? Not sure whether to invest in a couple of bigger bras or not.. Don't want to keep buying new ones if they change size again next week!
