I just had to say that! I finally went to the maternity store today to get a bra, some pj pants, panties and tshirts. I knew my boobs were busting out of my 34b bra (and I was really an A but I don't like looking flat) but I had NO idea I would be a 36c! Holy cow! I grew pretty big at the end with dd, definitely not this early. I might be a D cup by the end of it and I'm a small frame!
LOL! I'm petrified to think about what size I am now. I didn't get any bigger with either of my boys, until I started bfing. But this time I've clearly grown at least a cup size. I was already a DD, so now I am scared to go get new bras. I really need to tho!

That's funny. I started at a 34B and had to switch to a 36C at around 5 or 6 weeks. I knew I needed a new bra so I pulled out my bras from when I was pregnant with Brandon and tried on the 36C and was shocked when it fit. Last time I didn't need that bra until closer to the end and I went up to a D after I had him. I guess we'll see what happens this time around.

Oh wow. I'm hoping not to get too big. Since this is my first maybe they won't grow too much till the end. I'm a D now.

With DD mine didn't grow until the 3rd trimester. Then of course they got bigger with breastfeeding. After I weaned DD, they got smaller, but they didn't go back to the size they were before I got pregnant... which made me really mad. I was already bigger than I cared to be, so I wasn't thrilled with a permanent increase. This time, they've already gotten a little bigger (not a huge amount, but I notice it). I really, really hope that after I have the baby/eventually wean him, that they go back down. I have a petite frame and really hate having such large chest... I feel out of proportion.
With DS#1, I started a barely B. I stayed that way until about 26 weeks, then it seemed I shot up to a D cup over night! By delivery I was a DD and then after bfing and weaning I was a comfortable C. I like C. C is nice and middle for me.
With DS#2 I started a C. I went back up to a DD by delivery (not sure when I busted that pregnancy) but after bfing and weaning I landed at a barely B again.
This time, I started at a barely B again, and I shot up right away to a C, but then got the stomach flu and lost 8 lbs in 2 days and went down to a B again. Now I'm almost filling my C cup again, but my bbs are feeling sore and engorged again. I think if I hadn't had the stomach flu at 10 weeks, I would be getting into the DD again right now.
