Gawd I'd forgotten about the boulder boobs
Outside of pregnancy I'm a 34C, going up to a 36D in pregnancy. I bought a couple of 36Es for BFing when I was 39 weeks as when my boobs settled last time that size was spot on.
My milk is in and OMG my boobs must be an F or G. I know they'll go down but even my feeding crop tops are too tight! I'm walking around boobs out as they don't. Fit in anything but also leaking loads so that's not really practical!
Not complaining as I know this issue a good thing - Iris is feeding really well and drainthem one side each feed, but OMG they hurt!!!
Remind me, how long does the "boobs like hard watermelons phase" last for?! Today is day 2 of it for me.

Ah yes, the page 3 boob phase! I couldn't believe mine! Think they'll be bigger this time actually! Seem to recall that bit only lasted a week or so.
Have an image of you walking round m&s with your baps out! Ha ha

It was about 8 days for me. I feel for you, it is not comfortable!

Oh I remember that phase! Ouch and phwoar, all at the same time!

I do not like reading posts like this, it scares me. I'm a 34HH already, not sure they do bras big enough if I go up that much! Hope they settle down soon x

I described myself as Jordan yesterday, mine are ridiculously large too!! Boulder tastic. Really struggled with feeding to start with after failing (my mothers words) with I so this time we have started using nipple shields and it seems to be working which makes me feel so happy, am celebrating by eating everything in sight!!!
I am hoping the boulder look goes soon, poor H has been told to look but not touch, the thing I am finding is trying to keep I off them, hard to explain to a toddler!!
BTW Hep, how is the spd? My back is still terrible so am limping which is funny as nether regions are fine!

Sleeping is a struggle as I likes to sleep in the nook under my arm which means my boob is squashed against the bed and against her. But also having her asleep on me is uncomfy too! Am worrying about blocked ducts so trying not to wear bras etc.
H is rather amused by the boobs, especially how my nips are now enormous And cuddling N is a real challenge as you say.
SPD seems ok during the day but at night in bed the front of my pelvis gets really crunchy and achey again. It's much better but not the miracle cure I was hoping for!!

TP- You might want to look into made to measure bras then
My nipples were like saucers! Oh they were scary!! Sleeping is a pain but I found that I was so tired I soon drifted off. Hope the pain eases up soon Hep, it may be a couple of weeks yet x
