    Default Hmmmm newbie boobie question

    Today i noticed that my breasts seem to feel a bit fuller...not fuller as in theres milk in there but just I dunno how else to explain, just fuller. Im usually braless since im a stay at home mom and never have company so i just happened to notice after pumping this afternoon (dont worry i pump more than once a day but noticed after a pumping session) Asked DH to tell me what he thinks, he said they feel a bit fuller too....

    Anyone whos relactating notice that too? Im on day 6 (its after midnight here) with pumpin with the double elec pump, was using a manual before.

    Why would they feel fuller if theres no milk in them???

    In order for there to be milk, there has to be lactation tissue. This process normal happens during pregnancy. During pregnancy, the hormones in your body create changes in your breasts, one of them being enlargment of lactation tissues. This occurs before you body starts producing milk.

    It's a good sign... Keep it up!!

    I've noticed this as well! It's just like they're heavier, and just not as soft and 'squishy' as they were before Hubby thinks they're a little bigger too. Let's hope it means something!
