I am 17 weeks pregnant. My cup size was a 34B and I am now a 36DD and E depending on the bra! I am only 5'6 and weigh 129lbs.

I'm 5'3 115lbs and my breasts was 34DD pre pregnancy i am now 11 weeks pregnant and im already wearing a 38E i am MORTIFIED to get boobs any bigger than what i initially had. To begin with 34DD was very big and my back was constantly hurting. My family on my father's side has a big history of gigantic boobs. Most of my aunts wear bleeping H cups..... H? Wth is that. Nonetheless i really do not want my breasts to be hanging all the way to my knee caps when im in my forties. So i pray E cup is where ill stay.
Or theres always breast reduction :D.

I went from an c34 to a d36 with my first baby. I went back down to a c34 and I'm 17 weeks and I'm at a c36. I get so engorged tho so they did get bigger at time with my first one. But I'm a grapefruit and I wish I had melons. Oh well. At least they're round and full.

I'm 5'3 and was a 32DD pre pregnancy. I'm 19 weeks pregnant and now up to a 34G.... most women tell me I'm probably not done growing yet because I'm still so early along in the pregnancy. My poor back!!! D:

I was on the larger side of a 32A before pregnancy, almost a B. I'm 13 weeks now and am a 32C. I also picked up a 32D in anticipation of what's to come! Note that as the cups get bigger, there is also some more room in circumference so I don't think I'll need to go up to a 34...but it's still early, so we shall see!

I'm yet to have a baby but it's on the cards to happen really soon. I was interested in this topic as I had larger breasts not so long ago but have dropped a cup size since joining the gym and healthy eating. I would love for them to come back again after a baby & noticed Miranda Kerrs breasts get a lot larger and have stayed that way after bub and still are larger to this day. Anyway just wishful thinking over here

I was a 34 e prior to pregnancy, went up to a 36 H during nursing...unfortunately I did not go back down after weaning my son at 8 months....17 months post partum I was at a 36 k ... The changes in hormones affected my breast growth. I ended up getting a reduction a month ago. Am back to a 36E, thank goodness. Not small but I can tell you this is nothing compared to the pain of K sized breasts. To those that complain about a C or D cup, I know it's a big change but its not that bad.

Most likely you will go up to a C cup. After you give birth you will be a D cup for a few days and then return to a C cup. After breast feeding your breasts should return to an A cup :)

Oh my God, I was 40DD before pregnancy and now I am 42 E. I still think DD could fit me, but I ordered bigger cup because they may get bigger after delivery. I am joking and sometimes say I need to rent a crane to hold my boobs as I walk. It is so heavy.

I know how you feel. I really tried to keep working out and stay in shape, lots of work on my core....it was hard at first...but I don't have nearly any of the back pain I had initially when mine decided to explode.

Prepregnancy, I was a 34B. I'm now 29 weeks and yesterday I was measured at a 34DD. Pretty much sums up all the back issues I've been having lately.

I love the changes in my breasts since pregnancy...I always had lackluster ones coming out of high school, in a 36b. I did fill out some once I got to college and was a full C cup when I got married in 2005. But my first pregnancy I exploded and was a G cup post partum and settled into a 38DDD, which is where I have stayed around...I was back in an F cup for my 2nd pregnancy, but now back in the DDD. I love it and so does my husband LOL.

[deleted account]

I wore a size 34b in the third grade and i've never worn a training bra so i've always had large breasts and during pregnancy my breasts went up 2 cup sizes a number so i went up to a 38DD from a 36c and after pregnancy and everything returning to normal i only went down to a 36DD and they've stayed that way

B26 to D28 so far I am 20 weeks. You will getting milk coming in some that will also make them too. I was a A my first pregnancy went up to DD and went down B it took quite a while over a year to get back to a B for me and then found out I was pregnant back up again. On of my favourite things about being pregnant!

I'm seriously dreading my milk coming in I'm going to look like Dolly Parton, especially once my big belly is gone... Oh well I'm sure hubs won't mind lol ;)

I started off a 34C and by the end of the first trimester I was in a 34D and just recently that's gotten too small and I am in a 36D now but the cup is barely big enough, and will probably hit DD by time my milk comes in. I am almost 28 weeks now.

I feel like I wrote this! Haha =) I am the same way. I was always an A cup, small A too. But with my first they got to a bigger A and stayed that way. Now with my 2nd they're a B cup. I hope they stay this way =) It would be nice to keep the boobs I never had before! Haha =) Good luck =)

Yeah I have noticed like the others it was after I had my son and after the first few weeks of feeding was when they got the biggest. I apparently made enough milk for twins, was considering the milk bank this time around if it happens again. You can donate your extra milk to mums who have prem babies but cant feed their selves. If I can help another mum get to keep her baby alive cause I make too much milk I'm cool with that.

You're a lucky lady! I started my pregnancy at a C. I'm now 22wks and a D is snug and my shirts are all getting really tight around the chest. From past experience they only get bigger when your milk comes in.

[deleted account]

oh no i meant to write 28 not 26...and im only at a b...hopefuly they get bigger, i was kinda looking forward to it haha i cant belive how much everyones have grown. i doubt greatly ill get to a D but, i guess a girl can dream haha

I was a barely C before the pregnancy but at 16 weeks I am a D and the thing that gets me is I was always uneven one breast a little bigger than the other but is was just a tiny bit now it seems like the one is much bigger than the other. It is crazy how the pregnancy affects our bodies!

I agree with Chantelle, the extra weight gain is when you start to sag. I also found that being so large I had horrible tearing-type pain whenever I moved in bed at night so I recommend finding some nice soft cotton bras and sleep in them. I chose fuller-figure designs as opposed to maternity designs as the support seemed a little better. If you live in Aus I can definitely recommend some, message me if you want them.

I was a 10C and am a 12DD at the moment. I'm 27 weeks pregnant so I know I'm going to get bigger, especially when milk comes in. I have found also that with each pregnancy (this is my 4th) that my breasts get larger with each one. lol

When I was pregnant with my first child I was originally a 10B and because I gained so much weight my breasts ended up stretching and slightly sagging. Sorry to tell you this but I just didn't want you to think that sagging is not a possibility at all. So, in saying that just make sure you wear good bras that support you and this will be less likely to happen. I didn't wear bras in my first pregnancy often enough so that is how I think it happened to me. All the best, good luck with it all.

I had size B when I got pregnant. During the pregnancy my size grew to a size C and in the first weeks of breastfeeding the grew even to a size D (that was a big surprise because I got married when Thessa was 6 weeks old).

I went from a 12B/34B to a 14D/36D by 10 weeks, I am now 28 weeks and am a 16E/38E!!! I hate to think how many more I'll go up when my milk comes in! It's funny though, I have only put on 7kg, which is quite normal for my stage, but it has all gone to my belly & boobs! I'm still wearing the same underpants and swimming costume pants I wore pre-preg!

[deleted account]

I went from a c to a dd. After you have the baby you may get even bigger because of the milk coming in. When all is said and done you might go to one size above your regular one and stay there. I started as a 36b after 3 children I am a 38c. however I am now pregnant again. we'll see

I am 27 weeks and started as a 34A, I am currently in a 36C. I just moved into the C so I will probably stay in the C's... with milk it might hit a low low D but Im thinking it will stay in the C range. All depends on your body I guess. I was told after milk they shrink one size, if you started small. So if you end up hitting C you will go down to a B after Milk, or so the theory goes.

Well with my first pregnancy I went up from a DD to a H!!!! And I remained a H the whole time I breastfed. I am pregnant with my second child now, and because I only finished b/feeding when I found out I was preg, I didn't get a chance to see if they went down again. But this time they have stayed at a H the whole pregnancy, so I am happy about that. (I'm due in a few weeks)
