Just to chime in on the "it would have happened anyway" as an older FTM who started off with big boobs ( I started with D boobs and haven't seen any noticeable increase in size so far -thank god) I never had super perky ones but I dont think they sag too much considering their size. Definitely no deflation yet at 35 years old. So I assume that will happen and have everything to do with the breastfeeding/pregnancy.
I don’t even want to type this…but after my first pregnancy and 15 months of breastfeeding, my C cups really weren’t that bad! I have some extra stretch marks on the bottoms from that first pregnancy (and have diligently been using stretch mark cream this time around to avoid additional issues with baby #2) – but no one apart from DH can see those in even the most low cut shirts.
That said…(And this is why I was hesitant to say anything) I’m cognizant that it may be a very different story this time around. Firstly because my boobs didn’t actually grow as much with baby #1, as they have with this one. I never even had to switch bras with that pregnancy – and quite frankly, was stymied as to where the stretch marks even came from. This time around, we’ve (i.e.: the ladies and I) had to make several bra size changes…and have finally landed at a comfortable DD. So far, no new stretch marks – but who knows what will happen once I’m done breastfeeding this baby. Maybe I just won’t stop. Hee.
FWIW, I’ve read that it’s NOT breastfeeding that kills your beautiful boobs, it’s actually pregnancy in general. If it’s in your genes, there’s just no avoiding it.

Yeah hoping for once i have the good genes in my family. I seem to get the bad ones (health wise). It sounds so vain that im worried about my boobs and stomach hair. Not that dh points out or says anything about them I just have a habit of picking on myself for things a lot.
