Is this normal?

I am 33 weeks pregnant (2nd pregnancy) and my breasts have hardly changed at all. When I was pregnant with my first son I grew like 2 sizes almost immediately. I'm worried that there is something wrong with my milk production or something.
Has anyone else experienced this issue or know what may be wrong? Breastfeeding is very important to me and I am starting to stress out about it.

My breasts hardly changed sizes until my milk came in (post delivery) on both my babies. Until then the only major change was a band size.

My breasts didn't change much during either of my pregnancies or while nursing. People always talk about how when their milk came in that their boobs where huge and hard as rocks. Mine never felt or looked like that (and they aren't big to begin with so any kind of change would be noticeable). I nursed my first baby with no problems and am currently nursing my now 7 month old. I don't think it is anything to worry about, but talk to your healthcare provider about it to ease your mind. Good luck with your labor and delivery!!

With my 2nd mine didn't change or even leak like I did with my first. I had my daughter via csection the 2nd time and was able to nurse just fine! Milk didn't come in until we got home but it was like that with my first child.

Thanks mamas! Good to hear I'm not the only one. I am feeling better now It was just so different with my first pregnancy. I'm also having a hard time gaining weight, but gained fine last time. I don't know what's going on with my body this pregnancy.

It's just your body's way of reminding you that every pregnancy and every baby is different.

Re: Is this normal?

I actually go down a cup size each pregnancy. Seriously. Its terribly unfair. Even right this second, I have milk running down my belly and I am completely full waiting on dd to wake up to nurse, and I am barely a B. Started her pregnancy as a C.

Moral of the story - breast size, or whether your breasts increase in size while pregnant, has very little to do with how much milk you will produce.
