Do your boobs hang low? Is the damage reversable? I used to be a small B until I got pregnant and then I was a C and when my milk came in I became an F-G!! You can imagine the damage to my breasts...... Now they are shrinking and hanging and I'm so upset about this. Will they ever be perky again or will they look like shriveled little dried grapes?

I did not BF, but from what I hear, its the pregnancy/initial engorgement that does the damage, and not the BFing. Mine are flatter now, so without a bra they look smaller. However, get a shaped bra with lined or padded cups and they will look totally fine- I have decent cleavage still, too. I did gain some size, too, I was a 36C before pregnancy, am now a 36DD.

Hmmm....my boobs haven't changed at ALL! I keep wondering how big I'm going to get when milk comes in.

I hope you don't mind me asking....but did anyone have no boob change during pregnancy? And how big did you get after the milk came in?

Lee Ann, I can answer the 1st part of your question. Mine haven't changed at all. I was kind of disappointed that they didn't grow at least a little (I have hardly anything on top), LOL.

My boobs grew some toward the beginning of pregnancy but not recently. I'm expecting them to grow more once my milk comes in though. I'm trying to enjoy them while they're still perky! LOL

yes enjoy them while they are perky, I wish I had!!!! I'm totally disgusted by mine at the moment. This week is just really hard on me I guess.... I feel like my whole body is a mess, I didn''t think I could ever feel this way about myself...

I'm "lucky" in a way... Because mine were SO big before babies, and getting even bigger (already 2 cup sizes since the BFP) my doc is willing to do a breast reduction (including making them perky again!) once I'm done with babies. I'll probably go down to a C cup, from an H - substantial size down, but with this back pain, its worth it.

I'm worried about how they'll look after pregnancy, too, but a little less concerned because of my doc saying that... Plus if it is because of back pain, its covered by insurance here. Between giant boobs and a car accident, I'm good. Thankfully. LOL

I got lucky in that my boobs were small before getting pg and didn't grow much at all- even with still BF. So they don't hang low or anything but they are DEFINITELY NOT the same. I'm with Gwen and excited to get that boob job

There is no cure, but it can be somewhat preventable by always wearing a bra, even when you sleep. That in no way will completely prevent it, but it does help for some people. You have lots of ligaments in your breasts. If those stretch out they don't go back down.

I was a 32A pre (1st) pregnancy by the time I had Summer I was a 34C and after my milk came in I was a 34DD.

When I stopped BFing I went down to a 34C where I have remained until a few weeks ago and they have started growing again

mine didn't 'sag' but I always wore a bra even to bed, that said they definately aren't as perky as they used to be but I think that has to do with age too! they can't be perky forever right?!?!

I went from a 34DD to a 36G.... yeah, I lost all the elasticity in mine (where I got the stretch marks) even wearing a bra to bed every night during pregnancy and after
