Boobies! Before, During, and After..

I have them and I would like to talk about them, kay?

Throughout this whole pregnancy the only thing that I had was an itchy nipple, that's it, and it only lasted 1 1/2 weeks. Right now, they are just pitch black dark. 2 weeks ago I happened to wear a white bra and a white top to work and when I got there, of course I went straight to pee cause you can't escape that, and I noticed that they were still showing through the shirt, no kidding. I actually had to cover it up with toilet paper to avoid much male attention.... and to being fired...

Nothing else has happened to my boobs to make them uncomfortable. I mean NOTHING. They don't hurt and even in early pregnancy I had no soreness whatsoever. They haven't even changed in size, up until now I've been wearing my regular bras. Last week I had to buy some new ones just one size bigger because I 'm a girl and shopping is always a cool thing and any excuse will work. That and they are starting to feel heavier... but nothing else. I can still wear whatever bra my hear desires. But the heaviness brings me to something else....


I plan to do this. To both of them. At the same time.
And I'm guessing things are happening in that department as of now because otherwise I cannot explain their sudden non-painful heaviness. I'm only praying that I can keep up the breastfeeding/pumping with no major issues. I'm already going to have a lot of diaper expenses so if I can feed them for free most of the time with very nutritious stuff, I want to do that.

Luckily and non-luckily for me I have just the perfect brain tumor to help me achieve my breastfeeding goal. While my tumor stays tiny and controlled its considered benign, though its still scary to know its in there. But since it is in there, it better do exactly what one of it's side effects happens to be: produce breast milk. It is a prolactin tumor... "lacting" as in lactating... as in I have prolactinoma which I dare say is kinda perfect for me breastfeeding twins. I wont go as far as saying its a blessing in disguise but it will be coming in very handy, wont it?

To tell you the truth I'll be very pissed if I don't make enough milk. I mean if the prolactinoma can make me produce milk whether or not I'm pregnant (I was on meds to control it before I got pregnant so I never did), it better hook me up when I need it the most! And if it can continue to help my boobies not feel pain during the whole process I might just take back all the mean things I ever said about it. I'll even go as far as to say: "Nice prolactinoma, nice"... just umm... stay tiny...


  1. How did I NOT know about this prolactinoma??? It had freaking better help you during this BF'ing time!! lol... And YES it had better stay tiny!

  2. You are so lucky not to have sore boobs! I hope your scary tumor really does its job and help with breastfeeding and that it goes away when you are done!

  3. I can't believe your nipples showed through lol thank goodness for toilet paper! I think you will be fine with breastfeeding, prolaticnoma better help you or else...

  4. Boobies... it makes me giggle!
    I'm glad that you didn't have to suffer with sore boobs and even more glad you found an excuse to go shopping, its always fun :)

    I don't know how you are going to breastfeed both at the same time but good luck!

  5. I have to tell you what I tell all soon to be mamas who want to breastfeed... get help if you need it!! I recommend finding a lactation consultant now so you have a phone number to dial if you need fast help. Breastfeeding is not always easy at first, but about 95% of women CAN do it if they want to, so don't be shy about asking for assistance! Good luck!

  6. Boobs are just another part of pregnancy that I find hilarious. They change so much, and it's so weird. I'm sure you'll make enough and demand right?

  7. Wishing looooots o milk your way!

  8. Look how far along you are! I'm so excited for you! Good luck breastfeeding- it is not easy, but worth sticking to and becomes quite a joy.

  9. I had the itchy nipple too! So annoying. It would always flair up at the worst out to dinner with Husby and work colleagues. URGH.


I heart comments, thanks for leaving one =)
