Normal or concerning?

My right boob looks slightly larger than the left.

Both are tender at the sides, but the right more so. Same goes for veins, some of left but a heck more are darker on the right.

I can't feel any bumps or lumps, the skin looks OK, both sides are itchy... Hard to tell about darkening as the veins obstruct the clear view.

I'm a worrier so panicked when I noticed tonight in the mirror.

One is usually bigger than the other anyway so not that unusual. If it's massively bigger and causing problems maybe mention it to your midwife if your worried but otherwise I wouldn't be concerned.

My right has always been bigger, but not noticeable to the naked eye. Only to touch.

My DP has now noticed when looking, and now I think about it my right boob is escaping my bra more these days.

I wouldn't worry too much. I think the way someone explained it to me is we think of boobs as a pair but they aren't. They are two individual parts as such and for them to grow differently, especially during pregnancy, is totally normal. But like I said if you're worrying just mention it to your midwife - always better to be calm and at ease than worrying =]

As it isn't any more sore, or no other symptoms, I think I'll just keep a close eye on it until my next MW appointment in a few weeks. Didn't know pregnancy could make them grow oddly!
