As I traverse this road of trying to concieve a child, I read a lot of smack on line. But one thing I heard really perked my ears up.

I hear (through the webvine), that your breasts, once they've gone through the process of creating and storing milk, actually remain a bit bigger even after you quit breastfeeding. That, indeed after giving birth and from then on, you'll have a fuller, bigger chest.

Have doper moms found this to be true? I'd love to fill these babies out with nature's natural implant!

Some get bigger, and stay bigger. Some get bigger, then shrink down to original size. As WAG, the average woman gains perhaps a bit. After nursing is over, it tends to be a bit more sag, however. YMMV

Okay, here's what happened to me. I was a 40D ever since high school and right up till I gave birth to my first child. Once the milk came in I went up to a 42F. After he was weaned I went down to a 40E and remained there for the next three years (had to buy all new bras, too, and that was so expensive!). Then I got pregnant with my second child and, while nursing, went up to a 42G. After he was weaned I went down to a 40F and here I remain--my second child is six now so it's been quite a while since I nursed. My fear of future pregnancies is that I may wind up a little further up the alphabet than I really want to go.

But, on the other side of that, I have a friend who was a B/C cup for years. After she had weaned her baby she went down to an A cup! She says the kid ate 'em!:eek:

Holy smokes!

The incredible shrinking boobies!

If there's one thing I don't need it's a bit more sag. Grrrr

Well, I gained a lot and don't have much sag. I mean they're big, but they're full--if you know what I mean. Sorry, hope that's not TMI.

I got bigger, but saggier. Most of my Japanese friends got smaller (and they are very jealous of me!).

The sagging is due to pregnancy, BTW, not breastfeeding.

I was a 34B before getting pregnant. 2 kids later, I'm a 36C. When pregnant, I went up to a D cup, and when my milk first came in, DD, then back to a D once the supply evened out.
