Well, I’m out of my second trimester, and I'm in the home stretch! If you missed my post about my first trimester, you can find it right here.
The second trimester was a breeze for me. My energy returned, the nausea disappeared, and the breast pain that I was experiencing in my first trimester ceased to exist...
One thing that hasn’t disappeared though is the swelling & enlargement in my boobs. I’ve completely grown out of all of my underwire and sports bras, and I'm probably 1/2 cup to 1 cup bigger than before I got pregnant. It’s hard to tell looking in the mirror since my belly is way more noticeable.
Side note: I've been calling my belly "my meatball," and I've had a lot of fun sticking it in my husbands face and shaking it side to side. Maybe it'll keep the baby awake so she's not so nocturnal when she's born :-)
Another change I’ve noticed is after I take a shower, my areola’s get WAY more dry than they’ve ever been. I've been lathering my boobs and areola's with my Boobie Butter after my shower and it takes care of the dryness perfectly!
Thankfully, I haven’t got a single stretch mark on my breasts yet.
Overall, my breasts are looking more and more natural, rather than augmented.
They’re still in the same place on my chest, no sagging, and the added volume is more than acceptable and most welcomed :-) I'd really like for the increased fullness to stick around, but it probably won't. Oh well!
Of course, I'll give you guys an update on the changes in my breasts after I have my baby and the effects of breastfeeding (if I'm able to). Love you ladies!
