LITTLE Breasts

Okay, recently I have seen a lot of posts about growing breasts. However, mine do not seem to be growing at all. I am at 16 weeks and have not noticed much of a difference (although I have noticed a small change). They did not hurt very much during the first trimester like I was told they would. I know that every pregnancy is different, but I was just wondering if this would hinder my ability to breastfeed. My breasts have not been small really, I wear a size 36C, but I just wondered if they do not grow bigger, will breast feeding be harder?

Re: LITTLE Breasts

The growing during pregnancy is just the glands enlarging. It's AFTER the baby is born when the milk comes in that they get bigger. So if you don't notice any difference, don't worry. Once your milk comes in it probably be just fine.

Re: LITTLE Breasts

Big Breasts mean diddly squat when it comes to breast feeding. I have two people that I know of - that were big to begin with (well not small) like a VERY full C or Small D and then grew SO VERY LARGE during pregnancy and could not breast feed. They didn't produce enough milk. You can have small breasts and the same thing happen!

North of 60 is right - its AFTER the birth to see if the milk comes in - and if your body produces enough.

I don't plan to breastfeed - I am only a B normally and I am around 25 weeks - I have grown a little (they are a little bigger now) I don't know how big cause I wear sports bras. I had SUCH sore breasts during the first trimester - they were terribly sore - but still havne't grown much... I am kinda glad. The belly is enough to haul around and I am only 25 weeks! I am carrying "small" looking too - like a watermellon (long up and down) not like a basketball and I am only 5'2" so I feel very full and my ribs kill me all the time!! Long uterus I guess...

Re: LITTLE Breasts

My breast were not sore during my first trimester either. I have grown slightly until now from a B- to a C. I still wear my B bras but I am curious to see what a C will fit like since I haven't really worn one of that size before. Women with A cup's can breastfeed their babies too.
