Hi! I'm brand new to JustMommies, but SO happy to finally find a group of ladies like me, where I can keep up with people and share and ask questions! We're due on Jan. 22, so I'm 14 weeks and 1 day today (hooray for the 2nd trimester!!).

My question is: I have noticed that only one breast is changing. Both of them have been tender, but only my left breast is getting fuller and firmer, with a darker areola. Is this normal? I know my breasts didn't develop at the same rate when I was a kid, but this seems different somehow.... I'm so afraid I'll only be able to breastfeed with one breast! Can anyone confirm or deny my fears? Before I ask the midwife? Thanks!

It's really nice to meet you all!

Blue-Jay

Welcome to JM and Congratulations on your pregnancy!

I am not really sure I can answer your question. I hope someone else here can help.

I'm new too I had this with my first son, but it was right at the beginning of pregnancy. They soon evened out when I hit about 15 weeks. I've not had it since.

Welcome. Your breasts changing now will have no effect on nursing. They will change even more as milk comes in after delivery. My left one has changed a ton and the right just slightly. With my son I had no issues nursing. One was always slightly bigger because he favored it.

Ditto to Megp. It will not effect breastfeeding. You should be fine. Hormones just do weird things!

I'm betting it will catch up. Mine are naturally lopsided, LOL, and when I am pregnant/breastfeeding it's REALLY obvious!!! I think it's probably normal, esp since you said you developed that way in the beginning.

Yep, what she said! And in general, your beast size, whether they change or not, should not make a difference on you being able to breastfeed. One of my best friend from highschool is as flat as a board and easily nursed both of her children to insane chubbiness. And my first preferred one of the other as well. Welcome to the group and congrats.
