Ugh. Expanding Ribcage take #2. — The Bump
2nd Trimester

Ugh. Expanding Ribcage take #2.

I forgot how much I hated wearing a bra when I was pregnant with Molly. It squeezed me in all the wrong places, even when fitted correctly, because of my ribcage.

Today I nursed Molly and she fell asleep. I laid on my back on the couch with her when I realized it felt like I was being stabbed underneath my breasts on both sides. It was my bra. 

Needless to say, the bra is out unless I have somewhere to go. Thank God for shelf nursing tanks.

  • Ugh, I've just started to experience this! I take my bra off as soon as possible. Today I found some bras without underwire which feel much better. Does it get better??

    Honestly it didn't get better until after I gave birth and the engorgement went down. Are you large busted? I am an F and all of 160 lbs at 5'6 so I am not well proportioned. I think the bigger busted you are the worse it is. With still nursing and being pregnant, I'd like to have some ribs removed, lol.
