I feel like I should know this since this is my #3...however, I swear my boobs didn't really grow much with the first two.

Given that I haven't been pregnant

Omg - Brie! Triple "like" your post. :)

Mine didn't do much of anything the first tri. If anything, they got smaller bc my son stopped nursing during that trimester.

Enter 16-17 weeks pregnant and my girls are killing me and have swelled up and are perky and flirtatious. I have constricted breasts so this is super fun for me :) aside from the pain, of course. :)

Mine didn't keep growing throughout my pregnancies, but they did get bigger again after, with nursing, but only for the first couple months until my supply evened out.

Ooooh, I'm sorry. Mine didn't actually grow at all with my first, and haven't grown with this one either. The feel and texture of them has changed drastically, and it started before I knew I was pregnant. I kinda wish one of mine would grow, they are different cup sizes and I have wanted them to be closer to the same since I was about 14yrs old.

LOL Nikki. I have AMAZING breasts now for sure. And, the best thing is that when I'm clothed, one doesn't know they're fake. They look like normal breasts, not flashy porn-star kind. Plus, I'm somewhat modest anyway. I wear some things that fit very nicely, but I'm not a huge cleveage girl. I'm raising children, after all.

But, like you, they are killing me. If they even remotely get grazed on the off-times I'm not bundled up, I have to check to make sure I didn't lose a nipple -- that's how badly they hurt. And, they've been sore almost since the get-go, but that's probably got something to do with the progesterone. I remember when I was taking it with Jake that my smaller breasts hurt a ton, too.

I don't think boob comfort is in my near future. LOL.

I, of course, don't have a previous pregnancy to compare mine to, but mine are way bigger!

I don't know, but my 3 year old informed me yesterday that, "Mommy, your belly is starting to get bigger...and your chest is getting a LOT bigger". Out of the mouths of babes!

I can't really remember! The boob changes were all so gradual with me. My boobs are definitely fuller now than before I got pregnant this time around. I bet they'll continue to get fuller as I tend to store up fat during pregnancy in preparation for nursing. Everything, boobs and all, just seem to get bigger and wider during the entire pregnancy.
