So when I was nursing/pumping for DD I had a definite super producer with my right breast. Lefties was good, but was just always less on production. At 17 weeks they really started to grow to prep for milk. I already have colostrum leaking. Well, I am incredibly lopsided now and in all honesty, self conscious about it. It did mot do this with DD's pregnancy. I got used to it while nursing, as most moms have somewhat lopsided breasts based on which one fed the baby last, but this just makes me sad.
I'm pretty lopsided too! I hate it. I'm pretty sure I'm the only one who can notice, but I definitely do notice. Both of my kids preferred left over right so that one produced slightly more. I think with this one I'm going to try and start each feeding with the right. Hopefully that will help??
My boobs haven't grown/changed at all yet. I was born with a concave/sunken chest though, so one side of my rib cage is inverted and has always made my chest uneven. I was extremely, extremely self conscious of this all growing up. I've finally made peace with it and just wear tops and dresses with high neck lines and buy padded bras to try to make things look even.
Maybe that sunken side will end up being the one that gets the big growth spurt and evens things out a big One can hope.
LOL oh man! I am only laughing rachel because I KNOW! It's so awkward! I've never had it during pregnancy though. It was SO bad after my first, he eventually was ONLY nursing on the Right side (?) well, one side anyway, and did that probably from before 6 months till he was past 2. I got to the point where I was a C on one side, and an A on the other. Horrible!! I did at least learn it is fully possible to nourish a child with just one breast With DD I worked hard to make it even, I insisted she always switch sides, and start on the side that had dried up first. I can't remember what happened, she still had a preference, maybe for the opposite side, but the lopsidedness was much much better. It does improve! Don't worry
