Just turned 6 weeks and mine have just started to deflate and DH can just about touch them without me trying to chop his hand off!!

Thanks all - off to the shops as I can barely breathe in current bra!

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 smile

Have you seen these? I havent tried them, breasts far too huge but my mum swears by them. Says they are really comfy!

Mine were same, bloody agony from the moment the pee dried on the stick.

Eased off about 8 weeks but last few days they are throbbing again and also gone whoomph again!

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!
