I had a nice handful before, now at 20 weeks they are literally being pumped up day by day to redonculous levels.....will they ever go back to normal?! Its getting abit rediculous!

Mine went up 3 cup sizes by that point. They've stopped now at least, well until milk comes in. But I can't tell you if they go back as i've still got 10 weeks of pregnancy left

God I hear you, I have gone from a 36c to a 40e! I am on my second lot of mat bras and worried at only 27 weeks they will grow some more. I hope they do go back, I am not enjoying a bigger bust aa much as I thought I would...

Mine went up to 34jj shock

Oh I hear ya!!! Mine are INSANE - also 20 weeks. Hoping they've done their growing for now. They're each like the size of my head. And my head is on the large side.

I was a 36F, now 38H. Its crazy, and im only 15 weeks.

I'm 28 weeks and have gone from a 34E to a 38G, I've been told to expect them to continue to grow.

I feel your pain.

Wowzers shock looks like Ive got even more growing to do by the sounds of it, my boibs will be bigger than my pregnant belly wink

I am now 34 KK. I am seriously running out of options. This happened with my last pregnancy and I had no choice but to go up back sizes even though the cups didn't fit. Same with nursing bras sad.

If anyone knows where I could buy nursing bras in a KK or above please do tell me!

ChristmasSeacow I think I've seen an L by Royce but that doesn't help much.

TestingTestingWonTooFree Mon 24-Apr-17 10:12:23
I've got this, I haven't noticed it being sized small.

Werkzallhourz Mon 24-Apr-17 10:17:07

Oh, I am so glad this is happening to other people. I was starting to think something was wrong with me.

I've gone from a 30ff to a 30hh. This is four cup sizes on a very smallish rib cage. It's like carrying round two very hot bowling balls on my front, and it's starting to make me feel a bit down.

I'm also struggling to find bras that fit. They are either too small or too big. sad

I went from a 32D to a 34DD/E by 15 weeks and am currently 26 weeks but thankfully the growth rate slowed so I'm a 34E. I found m&s non wired t shirt bras excellent during the growing phase.

AmyB1986 Mon 24-Apr-17 10:50:17

In my first pregnancy I went from a b cup to an h cup when I was breastfeeding, unfortunately they only dropped down to a g cup after I finished feeding! They grew again to an h with each pregnancy but never go back to the b I was always in a g now! Sorry 😬

SarahOoo Mon 24-Apr-17 10:56:02

My baby girl is almost two weeks old, I was a 36H before and I can't even tell you want I am now. Safe to say I need to visit Bravissimo in Covent Garden! I'm using a stretchy nursing bra from M&S which is not perfect but does the job! My husband took a pic of my BF and my boob was about 4 times as big as her head 😂

SlB09 Mon 24-Apr-17 11:19:51

Hahaha SarahOoo bigger than the babies head, that made me lol! AmyB1986 thats one hell of a jump from a b to g, is that just normal for you now or do you get sick of them being large? X

AmyB1986 Mon 24-Apr-17 12:05:38

@SlB09 it normal after 9 years but I get fed up when I can't find pretty bras! Not gunna lie, they do hurt my shoulders and I have to buy a top size or two bigger to fit them in!!

AtlantaGinandTonic Mon 24-Apr-17 12:11:23

I wish my boobs had changed in any way, or grown, with both my pregnancies. I struggled with a low milk supply due to what I suspect was insufficient glandular tissue (due to PCOS). sad

Cineraria Mon 24-Apr-17 12:31:49

Ooh yes, it's scary how they grow isn't it? When I was pregnant with DS, I noted when when I changed size:

Normally 30FF
Week before period was due 30G (that happened most months anyway)
8 weeks 30GG
20 weeks 30H
36 weeks 30HH
Post birth 30J, at which point I got really bad stretch marks on them (none anywhere else). I'm still that size eighteen months on.

My ribs didn't ever change size and as I'm quite short and DS is tall, his poor little feet seemed to get squashed under them and ended up curled inward when he was born. I had to massage them out every day.

This time I am still breastfeeding DS and am really pleased I haven't changed size at all yet (16 weeks pregnant) and am hoping not to! I didn't find pregnancy/nursing bras comfortable at all, so stuck to my usual favourites, Curvy Kate Ritzy or Tease, which are half cup styles that allow quite well for tidal boobs before and after feeds, and converted them with nursing clips and straps.

SasBel Mon 24-Apr-17 13:47:38

Nothing to add but I am a lot smaller than you ladies, 34A went up to a 34C, soon as feeding was established back to a 34A....Every pregnancy.
Hopefully you will deflate soon.....

Barnes79 Mon 24-Apr-17 15:51:48

Mine went mad! Was 34c, was up to 36G by week 28! The growth stabilised a bit since then but dreading my milk coming in after the baby is born (I'm now 35w).

YoungYolandaYorgensen39 Mon 24-Apr-17 16:00:36

I went up from a 34C/32D to a 32G during pregnancy and breastfeeding. They never quite went back to their pre-pregnancy size. I'm a 34E now but have never-ending bra trouble as at the start of a cycle my cup size is too big and at the end of the cycle it's too tight - can't win.

Crunchyside Mon 24-Apr-17 16:49:28

will they ever go back to normal

If you're like me, no, they will just shrink and deflate into used-up saggy old teabags after you've finished breastfeeding. But they temporarily come back if you get pregnant again!

I'm LOVING my pregnancy boobs right now, because I know this might be the last time in my life I ever have nice big round boobs sad

Iamastonished Mon 24-Apr-17 16:49:37

I went from a 34A to a 36A sad. I had hoped that pregnancy and breastfeeding would give me some curves, but it never happened. I had to return my 34C nursing bras and swap them for 34As. In the end I didn't bother wearing a bra while breastfeeding as I didn't need one.

This is sadly accurate...
