Re: Death by boob suffocation

  • YES!!!  I am over having big boobs.
  • YES!  and i don't even have to be laying down to have this worry.  in fact, upright may be wose.  at least when i'm laying down i can tie them in a bow and throw them over my shoulder.

    don't even get me talking about how much i worry i will suffocate lulabelle while breastfeeding.  that's a lotta' boob for a lil' babe:

    I agree. I was over them before I even got pregnant! Now its just plain ridiculous. My back hurts and they are just in the way all the time. 

  • Yes I fear for my life. DH thinks it is so funny.

  • OMG - your subject line is SO funny!

    I find mine irritating but not suffocating, except when they are unleashed in the shower, which is the only time I am braless these days, and then I feel like they weigh 10 lbs each and they are just completely in the way. I find them icky - I cannot imagine that people get implants to get even BIGGER than I am - UGH!

  • I was tiny to begin with so I for one am enjoying the plumper ta-tas.   So is DH hehehe.   
  • I honestly don't think my boobs have grown that much at all!  I was, and still am, a D cup.  Still wearing pre-pg bras.  We'll see if they grow as time goes by.
  • I'm just enjoying them while I have them because soon they will go back to their indention state and will be all gone... 
  • lol. i fear for myself, my fiance and our son,lol
  • I am a new mom to our 4 week old daughter and i just make sure i leave space for my baby girl to breathe while feeding, no biggie. Before pregnancy i was quite big anyway in this dept, but now that i'm only slightly bigger since lactating i can truly appreciate why GOD gave me these things in the first place. So I have to say my self body loathing is significantly reduced these days. Not to mention that they are more sexual while lactating than before it. Maybe tmi, but there you go. Good luck in your pregnancy.

  • I'm always afraid DD will suffocate while breastfeeding at night, but I've had absolutely NO changes in my breasts from the start of pregnancy even to this point. No growth, no shape changes, no color changes. But, yes, I worry about that too!
  • i used to be a barely B cup and now i'm a full C! NO COMPLAINTS HERE! Big Smile

    hahaha SAME HERE!

     Also, non-first-timers.. uhmn.. when do they stop growing? Do they grow throughout the pregnancy? Beyond it?! And do you always go back to your pre-pregnancy size?

    & Can anyone tell me what DD and DH means? I'm a newbie, and I can't seem to figure it out.

  • I have gone from a 36C to my current E cup and the baby isn't due to arrive for another 19 days.  Things are going to be scary by the time that my milk supply comes in!!!!  DH isn't complaining - but my back is killing me.
  • Same here. I was a D before getting pregnant, and didn't grow any bigger while pregnant or post-delivery. 

     I've also been surprised by how little support I need these days.  Most of the time I just wear a loose-fitting cami.  That means more air on the nipples and keeping the nips dry means no chapping.  Yes, my breasts sag somewhat, but they feel more comfortable swinging free than they do squeezed into a nursing bra  and right now that's all I really care about.

  • i havent  really  noticed much  change  ive  gone  from a 38D to a 40D and thats all  hopefully it stays that  way .
  • I am kinda jealous I don't have that problem!!  LOL Stick out tongue

  • LOL, I read it the same way! Man do I miss caffeine!!

    Just like everything else in pregnancy, every body is different!  However mine with both my son, and with my current pregnancy grew throughout pregnancy, and then after I had my son, they really blossomed! I was busting out of my 38D! (and I started as a 36 B), however, I couldn't breastfeed, so they deflated very quckly! And as for the DD and DH, you got me too. I'm new to the Bump. So I'm with you on the confusion! :)

     

  • Big boobs are not all they're cracked up to be, but don't worry. Your baby will learn how to push and pull them around exactly the way s/he wants them and will not suffocate.

    Well, this is my first-time pregnancy. And I can tell you that they grew like wildfire during month 2-3 & I went from a 38C to a 40D. When I was pretty sure they were done growing, I went out and bought 3-4 new bras. While they were growing, I found the miracle of non-underwire Vogue sports bras. Not incredibly supportive, but my breasts didn't feel so constricted & achy. They've been growing very slightly since then, and are now starting to "blossom" like mad again. Next bra purchase will be nursing bras I think.

    As for the DD & DH thing. I dunno if there's a translation of abbreviations anywhere on these blogs, but from what I can gather DD = Dear Daughter, and DH = Dear Husband.

    I could be wrong. I've barely been on these blogs myself.

  • I think you can safely say they are done growing AFTER the first real milk comes in. I thought I had to be done growing by the time I was nine months, right? Well when the milk comes in and you look like Dolly Parton, it can be a rude awakening! After the engorgement (sp?) goes down though, I think the worst is over :) NO you do not always go back to pre-pregnancy size either. Pre pregnancy I was a C cup and here I am on my 4th baby sporting a DD. After the first though, I hear they don't grow as much, if at all in subsequent pregnancies. I hope that is true this time around!

     

    DD= Dear Daughter OR Due Date    DH= Dear Husband      DS= Dear Son :)

  • YES!!!!!!!!! I was just complaining about that! How is it that my boobs are bigger than my belly and I'm 8 months pregnant!!!!!!! Uuugggghhhhhhh!!!!!
  • DD = Dear Daughter

    DH = Dear Husband

    I cannot wait to add a baby ticker to my profile!!! TTC this coming Spring 2011, hoping for 2012 baby!!
  • I have always had large breasts and they got even bigger when I was pregnant with DD. She was a premie and still did just fine. It took a little extra work on my part but we made do. Just last week I had surgery to reduce my 40F. I still have significant swelling but it appears that I am a small D/large C cup. I am only 5' 1" and was having so many back problems because of them. My insurance covered the procedure and my back is already feeling better. Good luck.
