Here's where the moms in the audience hate me.

You see, I seem to be smaller than pre-pregnancy size. I have a couple of pairs of jeans that I couldn't wear in the months before I got pregnant - and they're now too loose. That's happened before, and I'm sure it will happen again (the part where they're too small, that is).

But the thing that's surprising to me is that my bras seem to be too big around! Cup size - well, I'm still nursing, of course, so that's somewhere between a C and a D, depending. But I'd been noticing recently that my one real nursing bra has been... loose recently. Okay, I figure I've been wearing it pretty regularly for the last almost-year, it's probably stretched some... but really, I haven't had it all that long, and I *don't* wear it every day. Today, though, I wore a non-nursing bra, one with (brace yourself) underwires, and it was also too big! This was a bra I'd worn last spring, when my pregnancy-enhanced bust was too confined by my previous underwear, so I only wore it for about three months. Although I only paid $5 for it, it's in quite good shape. Today I put it on (it's a 36D, with lightly padded demi cups), and it was both too big and too small - the cups were a bit skimpy (not necessarily bad when you need to nurse in a bra not designed for it), and the band was too loose! So it appears that I may be in the unenviable position of needing to find a nursing bra in size 34D. I never thought I'd ever be looking for that size...

I suppose that this means I'm living proof of how breastfeeding can lead to weight loss.

Oh, I don't hate you! I'm thrilled for you! That's awesome!

I also got down below my pre-pregancy weight by the time I was weaning the Pumpkin, but now that I'm preggers again, I am not. We'll see where I get to after this next one!

I'm smaller than I've been in about 5 years. I'm also a 34D. Motherhood has some...they're around but it's harder to find them than a 34c (my reg size) TJMaxx also often has some. Marion

Why yes, we do hate you....LOL
Although my hatred is all about the boobies. I am breastfeeding and pregnant and I am about the smallest I've ever been?!?!? What is up with that?
