    I was just wondering whats going to happen to my breasts after I give birth?

    I have gone up from a C cup to a D cup so far. I know that after a couple of days when the milk comes through the breasts become hard and engorged, but what happens next, do they go down again, will they remain a larger size untill I stop breast feeding?

    Whos stayed larger forever, or became smaller than they were to start with?

    did people who didnt have stretchmarks before the birth, get them from feeding?

    Anyone with any experience of this already please let me know what it was like with you.

    I also went up to a D cup and so far they havent got smaller!! kind of wish they would thou!!

    once milk came in they felt as if they were going to explode!!! lol not painful as such just a little uncomfortable. i wasnt breastfeeding but i was expressing milk which definitely helped with the uncomforatable -ness!!!

    didnt get stretchmarks before or after

    now jamie is 1 month old, im not breastfeeding but they have stayed they same size so hoping they will go down a bit!!

    Hi

    I had my baby on Friday and my boobs are now a 38F (I was pre-pregnancy a 36C). I am breastfeeding and now that all my milk has come in they are engorged and I feel like I'm carrying two big bowling balls around. The midwife told me that this pain will go and that they will go back to normal with regard to feel but not necessarily size. I'm also having to wear a bra (even in the bath) as I'm scared that they'll drop off as they feel so heavy!!

    Anyway, I hope they stay big as I love big boobs and having a cleavage (just hope the pain goes very very soon!!).

    Im only a 34A....arhhh i know.....but when i got pregnant i went (for me) to a massive 38D....WOW. I breastfed for 2 and a half years, (only gave up 6 months ago) and i only breastfed cause i loved my big boobs. I kept my giant boobs for 2 years, then to my sadness they started to shrink and shrink and shrink and i started to get more depressed cause i was losing something to be proud of. They are now back to normal....GREAT IN NIT. sO TRYING FOR ANOTHER SO CAN HAVE BIG BOOBS AGAIN.....(BETTER THAN A BOOB JOB) To be honest though i did want a baby but it is a tremendous bonus when you get big boobs too. I didnt like the pain they caused but i would go through anything just to have a pair like that again.....he he.
    TCC now.
    All my love
    Jacqui.
