Now I understand that we're not perfectly symetrical and I've had it pointed out in bra shops that one might be bigger than the other.. but not as so I'd notice..

UNTIL LAST NIGHT.. I was brushing my teeth (sans top) and realised that my right boob was CONSIDERABLY larger than my left. I don't think you'd notice if I had clothes on (well I hope not because I'm in work and I'd be very embarassed) but I wondered if this was somehow prgrnancy related.

If one was slightly larger than the other pre pregnancy, might that one grow even more the the other when I was pregnant??

I'm exactly 30 weeks today so I hope it doesn't carry on growing at a faster rate for the next 10 weeks!!

I have had one boob be more inclined to be bigger than the other.
With BF it would fill quicker and bigger with milk, than my other breast. You will probably find it will fluctuate a bit and with bf if you have a baby who only drains one boob at a time you will get used to being a bit lopsided!
It is entirely normal so please don't worry, just another glamorous part of pregnancy! Also, at 30 weeks your boobs will have kicked up its milk making a notch.

After feeding my second child I had one 2 cup sizes bigger than the other. When I stopped feeding it all settled down again to even out so don't worry.

My left one has always been slightly bigger, then in second trimester it grew and grew and the right one didn't! A few weeks ago the right one seemed to catch up overnight though so the difference isn't so noticeable again, but I did gain some lovely stretch marks on it for the pleasure hmm
