I Must, I Must, I Must Increase My...

Are you there WWW? It's me, Margaret. Behold a real life Before and After. Now, I was not able to breastfeed Zoey for a few different reasons that are now 5 years old. But this time? My milk came in and shit got real. Real to the tune of an E sized bra that is all kinds of ugly. Please tell me that this, too, shall pass. The hormones, yes, the sleepless nights, the fact that I am now chained to the couch with my nipples hanging out of humongously horrible E-sized boobs.

And if it isn't going to pass? Then lie to me.
with love from the living room,
S

My engorgement was almost worse than labor. I went from an A to a D. But...it did pass. I kept telling myself it would as I stared at the HUGE, rock hard things on my chest. Warm showers and a few days made the world of difference. Good luck!

What an awesome visual. My 5ft 0in 100lb friend got up to a size F bra. Her big, tall husband could wear her bra cup on his head for a hat. She called herself The Walking Tit.

It passes. I bet you're cute with big hoots. xo

Known in our family as The Barbie Boob.

This too shall pass and we will always have the post to prove it! Just hang in there, or in your case just lay there because hanging would probably be kinda ouch right now!!!

You'll be ok! Hot showers are indeed a good idea.
My milk came in ASAP and was so intense that Frankie kept choking like I was waterboarding her. So, I never worried that she wasn't getting enough, just that I might drown her in leche.
....and it's only right that Ozzy is cultivating a boob obsession right from the get-go.

Congrats on the new babe. I, too, went to an E size bra when nursing, but after? My tits became perfect, smaller than before, noticeable even to my own father who was (and probably still is) positive I had a breast reduction.

I worried with my first son that my boob was actually smothering him, because it was so freaking huge. believe it or not, they will be smaller than ever, and depressingly hollow once you're done.

Although your commenters are bad liars, at least they're obedient!

As a 22 year old who has never had children, this is both amazing and quite terrifying.

Congratulations on your beautiful boy, and I'm so glad you're back!!

OH SUSANNAH...

I don't know how this was posted Tuesday and today is Thursday...Where have I been? I don't have anything particular to say, except...been there, done that, and this too shall pass! I am still laughing hysterically @arollerskatingjam's comment...hysterical! Ya know, you have some very witty followers! Sending you some proverbial "support" my friend!

First of all, CONGRATS! Ozzy is a kick-ass name!

I won't lie, they DO go down. Instead of porn boobs, you will have fried eggs. Or, uh, ski slopes.

Yup.
