Pregnancy Blog :: Week 14

This week's pregnancy blog is all about boobs. If you're not into boobs then I'd stop reading now. If you are into boobs... well.. I'm not sure I want to know about it.

Boob growth during pregnancy is another one of these things that people don't warn you about.

I remember the shock, during my first pregnancy, of how quickly my boobs grew. By the end of my first trimester I had to get re-measured and had gone up from a 34B to a 38DD! Oh my. After Lara was born I think there was probably a bit more growth to accommodate breast feeding but in the months after we stopped breast-feeding things began to calm down a little. Mind you, I never managed to fit back into my old bras.

This time around I lifted all of my old maternity clothes out of the loft at about 6 weeks pregnant and found that none of my old maternity bras fitted. I'm going through the same enormous growth stage as I did last time, just that I'm starting from a different point. Who would have thought they could get even BIGGER???

This week the boob size actually started to become a problem. I'm not used to them getting in the way when I walk! Mr B. seemed excited by the new figure but as soon as he realised that I was feeling so sensitive I wouldn't even let him breathe on them, he quickly lost interest. Lara on the other hand seems to have remembered that, quite some time ago, she used to have an intimate relationship with my boobs and has re-developed a fascination for them. This week in the swimming pool she kept prodding them!

I know 'why' your breasts increase in size during pregnancy, I just don't get why your body has to make preparations quite so early on in proceedings.
