Dude, Where's My Rack?

When I found out I was pregnant I looked forward to three things:

1- Having a cuddly, squishy baby to bring home
2- Sporting a cute little (then not so little) baby bump
3- Growing giant boobs

Being a lifetime member of the IBTC* I relished the thought of having the impressive rack I had always dreamed of.

Let's see where I am, goal-wise:

1- If sonograms are to be believed, there is indeed a baby squirming around in there
2- I have a mini-bump that seems to get a bit bigger and firmer every day
3- Boobs? Nothing. Nada. Zilch.

I am still, infuriatingly, fitting into my pre-pregnancy bras. What to Expect said that my breasts could swell up as early as 6 weeks.** Some helpful moms in forums agreed that it would happen by the beginning of the second trimester. Well, here I am in the 17th week and I have yet to have my much-promised boob-a-palooza. Literally every other mom I've come in contact with (books, blogs, magazines, forums, etc) has talked about needing the sweet comfort of a maternity bra, but I'm still holding down the fort with my stupid, tiny under wire bras.

This is all very Are you there God? It's me, Margaret and for that I apologize. I just want my giant tits!

*If you don't know what that means, clearly you never attended middle school.
**Get crazy sore and wake me up in the middle of the night? Yes. Blossom into womanhood? Not so much.


  1. ha. i feel you. just wait till your milk comes in ;) if it doesnt happen by then, you'll notice a change when you have little rocks for boobs :)

  2. I'm due in 2 weeks and still no damn boobs!! WTH!! Well, they did get a little bigger...now I can actually fill up my A cup....that's still not enough!

  3. There huge long enough for you to buy nursing bras, then they shrink back down to smaller than they were before so you end up stuffing your original bra just to fill it out.
