What is up with my boobs?

My boobs get enormous when I breastfeed. Pre-pregnancy I was a solid C cup. During breastfeeding I went up a whopping 4 cup sizes to a G. A few years ago I didn't even know you could be a G. I thought D, DD, and DDD were the end all, be all of bra sizes. I guess I didn't think too much about women with mega-boobs and what size they might be - DDD? Um, yeah.

So here I am, a couple months since I last nursed and mine are still a lot bigger than I thought they'd be. The bras I have now are a DD and they definitely fit right. I guess if I lost this last 20lbs, maybe a lot of it would be boob, but good greif! I thought for sure I'd be at least a small D post-breastfeeding.

The reason I'm thinking of it at the moment is that my husband took a picture of me a couple days ago and it really shows how big the girls are. When I looked at the picture I was like, WOAH! They are still big!

My husband's response? A sly smile, and a "yeah, baby!" nod of his head with a thumbs up sign. He's such a man.

That's hilarious! Well, about hubby....I understand what you're saying about the girls. I'm terrified at the possibility that after little man weans I'll still be stuck with these....things. LOL

I don't know whether I'm more afraid that I'll lose weight and they'll still be huge, or that I'll lose weight and mine will just deflate.
