Hey everyone. I have been keeping up with you all but havent posted as it is hard to reply on my laptop with baby always in my arms lol.



Dylans mom- You look great!



Naturally Alternative- You look great as well! Cant wait to see the rest of the July babies :D



To all the mamas struggling with sore nipples-- I feel your pain! Hang in there, it is so worth it! I had my baby almost three weeks ago and I only have a small amount of pain now when she latches, and that's it.
I want to keep these boobies forever! I am a 38 D now and love it so much. Before I was a B cup. My DH loves them too lol.



Elle- Congrats on your baby girl!
Mama Griffin- I LOVE those pics of your baby.

I got the one (yes, ONE) I wear from Lane Bryant. It was one someone had ordered and returned and just happened to be in my size. They don't have a store near here anymore, though, so I need to order some new ones. It would be nice to have more than one I can wear outside the house - when I'm at home I stick to sports bras, which are all too small.



If you have a store there you should ask them if they have any returns. The lady made it sound like it was pretty common for them to have them.

Oh man :-( they almost took mine for 24 hours and it freaked me out. I couldn't imagine missing a week. :-(

Crazy your band size went up too. I guess I'm lucky it's only the b**b size :-P



In other news, I decided my son already has "nipple confusion." He thinks my shirt is a nipple, he thinks his fist is a nipple, he thinks my SO's nipple is "the nipple." So I gave him a binky. I read everywhere to wait, but dang. He is already confused, and he keeps using my b**b as a soother. Lets see if I can sleep a wee bit more tonight.

You are all b**b! Wow, but no really if you have managed your weight better with this pregnancy I'm sure afterwards you'll be able to lose more. Pregnancy is a really really hard time to be trying to watch weight. So congratulations, I know it can't be easy.

I found brastop.com has decent prices for large sized bra's. they have cute maternaty bras too. (It's in Euros, but if you convert the money. It's not bad even with shipping, but I always go for the bras under 19 euros)



(Sry sooo many posts I kept replying and then reading, and replying and reading... Oops)

Susan: Yeah I looked again and found some I liked. I got 4 bras for $80. There's two near me so I had them shipped to the store so it's free... and if they don't fit I can exchange them. I know they say to wait until your milk comes in but I'm not sure how long that sale is going to last so I got them a size bigger. I'll exchange if I need a different size when it comes in.



And it's not that they didn't have anything over an F (I was looking online anyway), but I only like certain styles... and why the heck does sizes over an F need padding?! I don't wear padded bras, only full coverage, under wire, lace ones without any seams else I get weird shaped bras.



Fantastic: I only gained 5lbs with my first and I think I'm about 5/7lbs plus this time too. I started out 15/20lbs lighter this time though. But mind you, I'm so big I didnt need to gain any so... but yeah, fingers crossed it drops off again.



Thanks for the bra tip! I'll check that out. :)

It was miserable. I don't know how mamas who have to leave their babies for weeks/months do it. 6 days nearly broke me and if I had really known what I was missing it would've been so much worse.

I know! They had some once that looked like push up bras and I was a bit bewildered. I've got cleavage on my own, thank-you-very-much. lol

Haha... I'm like, yey! I have real cleavage! And then I have to tell SO not to touch them because they literally squirt :-( but I felt sooo ugly at the end of my pregnancy that its sort of a nice perk to have "real" boobies. It's not like I can have sex for a while, might as well have something nice. Haha.

My little guy is always looking and turning and straining his neck to suck lol. It's so funny, I give him a soother in the night when I'm changing him so he doesn't wake hubby. And if he just ate like an hr prior and I kno he's not hungry. It hasn't caused any confusion yet. But then again I don't let him use it for long periods of time. Couple more weeks I won't care though

My b**bs look fake. Perfect for summer lol. Although towelling off after showering hurts when it accidentally grazes them. Ouch!
