breasts not changing during pregnancy

by beverly thomas

I had my first child at 20 and my second at 30 my breast milk came in when I was five months, but am 36 now and eight months and my breast show's no sign that I am pregnant.

The doctors tell me to wait it will come in after the birth, so am just playing a wait and see game and I hate it.

breasts during pregnancy
by: Tracy

If you have breastfed successfully once, you will definitely be able to do it a second time around, your body will produce milk. Why are you concerned about it?

How Milk Production Works
by: Anonymous

When you say your milk came in at 5 months, I assume you mean that you think your milk came in when you were 5 months pregnant?

Maybe you felt changes to your breasts at this time in your pregnancy?

The placenta produces progesterone which actually interferes with the receptors in your breasts. That is why milk usually comes in about three days after birth... once the placenta is out and the breast kick into action.

Maybe you are not feeling the same 'pain' that you did during your first pregnancies as your breasts have done this before and are more set up now for next time.

The main thing that sets up your milk supply is breastfeeding frequently within the first 48 hours after birth. Do not worry if you do not feel your milk has come in... it should not do this until after birth. Hope this helps!
