I have a slight problem... Ok, I pulled out my maternity clothes and bought a few. Some fit and, of course, most don't yet. I went to get dressed today in my regular clothes and was unable to fit into my shirts anymore. My boobs are so big that they cannot fit into my shirts. Has anyone ever experienced this, this early in your pregnancy? I even tried on my nursing bra I had when I had my son almost 7 years ago, and it was too small. What do

I feel your pain and it is still getting worse for me.

I tell you what, when I was probably just barely three weeks, I had expanded from a barely B to a D. I luckily had some of my "big-girl bras" left over from when I was heavier and had larger boobs. Now I'm finding I've expanded more and am spilling out over my D cups. My shirts have been tighter too, thoguh I haven't had to go up sizes in shirts yet, just jeans. I would say youa re not alone at all and it can be very normal!!

Yep, it's normal! =)


Have you tried the layered look? I got a couple of cami's and wore them under my regular shirts with the overshirt unbuttoned quite a ways down.

Thanks ladies.... Now I don't feel so alone on this. I don't remember any of this from my last pregnancy.


I tried the layered look with cami's today and I have outgrown my button up shirts also. I guess I'll be heading to the thrift shop this weekend.


Our dh's can be so funny. :)

I know there is no way I will be able to fit into any of the maternity clothes I wore with Maddie!! When I was pg with my first mc, I actually had started to show already even though it was so early (I didn't find out the baby had died until 12 weeks, but my uterus kept growing, weird!) I tried on a few things then and everything was tight! I could NOT believe it, especially the bras. I hadn't realized how much I had grown, but DH sure likes it! LOL

If I am lucky enough to get pg again I'm wondering what size bra I will have to wear now!

Well have fun with it, LOL!

Hugs,
