Couldn't find what you looking for?


As you leave behind your first trimester of pregnancy, you are likely to feel a lot better. The early, hormonal symptoms of pregnancy are largely gone, and instead you will start experiencing pregnancy signs that make it clear that your body is preparing for your baby's impending arrival. Not only will you notice a growing uterus, and start feeling fetal movement, your breasts will also undergo numerous changes in an effort to prepare them for breastfeeding your baby once he or she is born. In this process, your breasts can grow several cup sizes. Enlarged breasts are a sign that your body's preparations are going smoothly.

Colostrum, the first milk that your body will produce to nourish your baby in his or her first couple of days after birth, actually appears at some point during pregnancy. Many women will see that their breasts start leaking small amounts of colostrum in the second or third trimester of pregnancy. Your breasts might continue to grow throughout your pregnancy. This is very common, although it does not happen to every pregnant woman and we have to note that you will be able to breastfeed your baby even if your breasts stay the same size. If you find your breasts grow enough to warrant buying new bras, you may want to look into buying some good nursing bras. These are not strictly necessary, but many women find that they do make breastfeeding easier and give you quicker access to your breasts while you are nursing.

Take into account that your breasts may still continue to grow when you go bra shopping. Some ladies go from an A Cup to a D Cup, or even bigger! Sometimes, growing breasts mean itchy and irritated skin. If you are experiencing this, try massaging some anti-stretch mark cream onto your breasts to help the skin cope with all the changes.
