Milk production

I have been freaking myself out lately that I won't produce enough milk after Jordan is born. My reason being is that my boobs hurt everyday and I never had that problem with my other 2 pregnancies.  I know it is probably nothing but I still worry.

I have the same fear except with my first my boobs hurt all the time when I was pregnant the first time and I made a ton of milk this time my boobs do not hurt at all but I am not due until July 27 so maybe they just need more time

I'm due 8/29 and not sure if I will be able to deal with the pain until then.  I can barely put on and take off my bra without it hurting.

You can try the maternity tank tops. I got a couple from babies r us and even walmart. They give a good deal of support now and are tight enough without being inflexible so that if you get bigger youddon't have to run out for a new one. If I can't manage to get a bra on I slip a tank over my head and go about my day. I can't say I'm worried about producing though. Only 20 wks and already have to use nursing pads and wake up to wet sheets bc I still sleep on my stomach. I'm more afraid of producing too much and choking the baby half to death. @.@

I wear a DDD bra so I can't go without.  Besides it f eels a little nasty to leave the house without one on.

I'm up to a F cup so I know how you feel. If I wear my tank I dress in layers even if it's hot out so you can't tell but there are tanks that give you enough support so that it looks like you're still wearing a bra even though you're top heavy. :) I'm not one of those that likes to let it all hang down and out either.. was just giving suggestions to try and help with your pain. You gotta dig deep and look for the right tanks, took me forever to find them, but they are out there.
