OK - I would like to clarify that breastfeeding does NOT ruin your boobs!!!!!!!!!! Such a myth that NEEDS to be debunked!!!!!!!! I hear this as a reason for some people not to breastfeed and it's not true! The reason your breasts sag is because of the sudden growth during pregnancy and when your milk comes in (this happens whether you breastfeed or not) - then when your milk dries up your breasts shrink (again this does not require you to breasfeed) so it's like a deflated balloon - lost some of it's elasticity.

As big as they need to. lol
Seriously, alot has to do with your weight gain at this point. If your really concerned, talk with your doctor.

I went from a C to a G (2008) during my first and shrank back to a DDD where I stayed through my 2nd pregnancy (2010-11). Apparently there's big boobs on my father's side of the family that no one told me about!

With my first, I only went up two sizes, with this one, my bra is full now! LOL My boobs have not grown much with this one. I have gained less wieght as well. When I do gain, I gain in my booty anyway, never in the tatas! All of us are different!

Mine went from 34C to a 36F and I never produced any milk, so kinda baffled by it. Now 14 months after my son was born Ive lost a fair amount of my pregnancy weight and my boobs are still 36E my back is killing me.

Every boob is different and every pregnancy is different. With one pregnancy I went from a D to a DDD. With my 2nd I went from a D to a C (go figure - I also delivered at my pre-pregnancy weight and ate like a horse) with my daughter I stayed C even after my milk came in.

With my first, I started out a D, steadily gained a cup size during the pregnancy, another after he was born and they went back to a D (not quite as happy looking though...) I'm in my second pregnancy now (11 weeks) and already I've gained a full cup size and working on another. Each woman is different and like I've been told - each pregnancy is different too! I would highly recommend investing in a VERY supportive bra. Not some cheap flimsy from Target. You need to invest some money into a good product. Even if you only wear it for two months. I just bought new bras and within the next month I'm going to have to get new ones! Hopefully they won't get any bigger. You'll have to get new shirts too! Being pregnant is so expensive! LOL!! Don't get too upset about it though. You can't change the outcome. Just stay healthy!

Yup boobs sag cuz they are supposed to, formula feeding or not. They will never be the same so you might as well use them to nurse and at least they won't get saggy AND get cancer.

I must be the only person in the world whose boobs did not grow with either pregnancy. Breastfeeding - yes but the pregnancy not so much. And before you ask, breastfeeding is a great thing but ruins breasts! Don't expect perky or firm afterward.

I don't think there's an absolute answer. Mine went up two cup sizes and after I breast fed for a year, they went back down to their pre-pregnancy size (wish I had more, but I'm not complaining). Some women keep them, some lose them. I was one who lost them after they weren't needed anymore. Hope this helps.

Every boob is different! Mine have done the exact same thing my mother's did. Started out a small C with the first one and they grew a cup size with the first to pregnancies. C to D. D to DD. But once I was at DD they have not grown or shrunk since. So for the 3rd and now 4th pregnancy they have stayed the same.

It's different for everyone. You'll just have to wait and see. As far as weight is concerned; keep in mind how much weight the doctor told you to gain. Eat HEALTHY and exercise. The best thing I found during my pregnancies was swimming and walking. I was able to gain between 15 and 18 pounds and was back in my jeans within a week or two. In fact, once I weighed less the week after my daughter was born than I weighed when I got pregnant. You can do this!!!! Remember, the healthier and more fit you are on delivery day, the easier labor will be...

they are preparing to feed your baby, so they will grow as much as needed to produce milk. Some moms can have enough milk with an A cup, some tend to be bigger. Most bigger :) normal and it just lets you know your body is getting ready to feed that baby its making. congrats on the little one, and sleep while you can!!!!!!! seriously, sleep now.

Just like how big your belly will grow, it varies. I didn't notice growth in my boobs as much during pregnancy as I did AFTER the delivery.

It is possible that they will stay pretty much as they are. Mine grew especially in the beginning.

With my first, I was a 34B before I got pregnant. By the time he was born and my milk came in I was a 36F! They never did shrink back - I'm now a 36DD and haven't breastfed in almost a year.
