When should my boobs start changing??

In the very early stages I had very tender boobs, but since then they just seem the same as before.

I'm now 30 weeks so was expecting a bit of growth, tenderness, possibly even leaks by this point.

Is this normal?

LikeCandy, I have not tried Hotmilk bras, so there is a chance that those are totally different, but I doubt it. And if they measure pretty much like most other bras, then this calculator (like 99% of online bra calculators) you used is wrong. It would put someone measuring 32 under and 36 over into a 36A - that person would really need a 32D!
What are your measurements, if you don't mind me asking?

hazle I (roughly) measured 35 under bust and 38/39 bust.
I'm a size 8. I've temporarily resorted to soft sports bras for work and no bra at home because I can't find anything comfortable.
I'm 30+6.
(Oh despite the lack of growth, I have had occasional milky nips since 26w, and they're definitely darker)

35 when pulling the tape measure tight? You're no A-cup, no wonder those are uncomfortable. Try a 34D/DD or similar sizes instead.

hazle pulled taught its 32 under and 37 over.
Thanks for your guidance btw! Much more helpful than m&s who put me in a 36B (I can't wear it for more than 5mins!)

ah that's more like it, thought 35 sounded a bit big. So start with 32 band and DD cup, but you also might need E or F. Don't be scared if it feels tight first - it will, if you have been wearing a 36 until now. But it will give you miles better support, I promise.

Hm on second thought, try the 34 as well, just on tightest hook. Normally you should always buy bras when they fit on loosest hook, but apparently at this stage you might be growing quite rapidly, so looks like it's recommended to leave some room for that.
