Breast changes in pregnancy
Pregnancy brings with it a whole host of body changes, and the first one to show will most probably be your breasts. Learn what is to be expected during this time.
Long before your stomach pops out, your boobs will be on the move. Some women rejoice at the presence of a bosom where there was none, while others complain of sore, swollen or tender breasts while the milk glands expand. Most will go up at least a cup size – and expect the under-bust measurement to increase by several inches too. The area around your ribs can become painful to the touch, and a soft sports style bra may be the only kind you can tolerate. Underwires are not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding as they can lead to blockages in the milk ducts. To take you through pregnancy and beyond, look for a style with extra rows of hooks and eyes that’s designed to expand.
