Anyone else wondering if their breasts will explode I went from a happy little A cup to budging out of my large C cup maternity bras. I think I went up two cup sizes today! I'd seriously guess D or DD... My milk came in and my breasts are giant and hard like a rock.
Does massaging help? Should I pump?
Btdt moms any pointers??

Ouch, IKWYM! My boobs are finally past the engorgement phase as of yesterday. It's so painful, but good thing it only lasts a few days.
Hot showers while massaging them and pumping while massaging them with a hot rice bag really help. Oh, and lots of nursing, of course!
No it definitely won't stay that way It gets better and better... it is the first week or so that is the worst. Just keep breastfeeding as much as you can and if you need to pump in between do so! As Mary said warm showers while massaging help a bunch.
Sounds like milk production isn't going to be a problem for you
