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.
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!
