The Sag Factor: Remembering the perky timesDepending on your “pre-baby” body, the swelling of your breasts can be a good or bad thing. Since I already had more than enough pre-pregnancy, the thought of going up another cup size was as welcome as giving birth in the middle of a McDonald's parking lot.
Maybe I’m not that much of a “hands on” type of gal, but I always found out that “the girls” were growing when I was in the shower. I’d put the soap on my loofah and start washing only to yell “ouch!” once I touched my Little Friends.
It was puberty all over again.
By the time pregnancy and breastfeeding were over, I couldn’t remember what they looked like beforehand. Were they really this saggy? Weren’t they perkier?
My advice for anyone who hasn’t experienced breast changes yet: Take a picture. You’ll have something to refer to if you can’t remember what your body was like before. And, if things aren’t the same anymore, well, at least you have a souvenir.
