"To Bra or Not to Bra?" That is the Question.

"To Bra or Not to Bra?" That is the Question.

Honestly, my “bra energy” was low at the beginning of my pregnancy. Wearing a bra during the first trimester wasn’t so bad, it was going into the second and third trimester where wearing a bra felt suffocating and just downright uncomfortable.

Was I the only one who felt this way? Nope, turns out a lot of preggo mommas felt the urge to just rip off their bras in the middle of the day and let their “hoohas” hang. How could we not? Our body was expanding, the skin stretches and tight constrictive clothing will only cause farther irritation and none of us, wants to find ourselves scratching our boobs in public.

Does Size Matter? 6 Breastfeeding Tips For Flat Or Inverted Nipples

Does Size Matter? 6 Breastfeeding Tips For Flat Or Inverted Nipples

There’s a pretentious belief that the bigger breasts, the more milk it will produce. FALSE. The size of your breasts does not indicate this, darlings. I personally know a mother with a small cup and she produces more milk that I do. She’s a size A and I’m a size C! She was producing her liquid gold like magic (or so it seems to me) and there I was crying for more milk. So no mommas, please don’t fall trap to this myth but instead, be prepared.

Being heavy breasted meant that I had more storage space for milk, but I experienced a lot of blocked ducts as well. It was painful with many outbursts of crying and moments where I felt like giving up. I remember having cabbage leaves placed all over my breasts to just calm them tities!

Clogged Ducts Vs Mastitis: What Is It And Should I Panic?

Clogged Ducts Vs Mastitis: What Is It And Should I Panic?

I remember getting a clogged duct and just experiencing THE worst pain ever. It was so painful I thought I was going to need surgery. I also thought that, alright, this was it, this was my calling that I just could not go on. I kept repeatedly telling myself that breastfeeding was not for me. It was just too, too, painful of a thought to carry on and think about breastfeeding my child for a few more hours what more the two years I intended.
