Bye, bye Breasts...

Seriously, I've never been well-endowed. But I was okay with my properly proportioned breasts before. When I got pregnant, "the girls" immediately became much more voluptuous. Kind of like Lynette on Desperate Housewives. Except hers are obviously not really bigger and I didn't wear low-cut shirts all the time to display them. (Which I now regret considering they are gone.)

But about 3 days after my D&C, they disappeared. Which sucked. But I thought, well I can live with what I had before. Today, however, I feel like they have nearly disappeared. If things continue at this pace, I won't need to wear a bra by Christmas. I'll just be placing band-aids strategically, especially in cold weather. Great for comfort, not for curves. And they are no longer the same size. I had no idea that my left breast was so unhappy and so quick to bail on me.

You can't give a girl a nice instant boob job and then just take it all away along with her pregnancy. I felt like I should get to keep them as a consolation prize. But instead they've decided to head for the hills. Great, now I look like a pre-adolescent boy... So NOT fair!!!


  1. I'm personally excited about this post b/c it just means that you are a sure thing for our best friend boob job plan! I'm definitely still in!

  2. Hey Amber! Thanks for your comment on my blog. It is so comforting to know that there are people out there who really get what I am going through and can go through it together. I hope 2010 brings wonderful things for you and your hubby and hopefully a tiny bundle of joy! Have a great week and on a side note about the breasts... I hear ya on the lack of chestiness but atleast when we are 50 we won't have saggy baggys on our hands :) (hope that makes you smile) Take care!

  3. BUMMER! That is DEFINITELY something I'm looking forward to if/when I ever get knocked up. Never thought about the aftermath, though. Hang in there... there's always push-up bras?!

  4. Awwww, so sorry that the girls didn't stick around!

  5. um, what is this about a best buds boob job? I think I need to hear the details...

  6. I just found your blog through another. I am interested because I too have PCOS and DH has male factor. It's been a difficult journey, but I believe we will one day be moms!

    I am a little deeper into the journey...having just gone through my first IVF and preparing to go through my second. Keep your faith and know that one day it will all be worth it to hold a beautiful baby in your arms!

    I'll be following and rooting you on to your BFP!
