Lots of questions about years after BR

Hey, everyone! I'm new here and I had quite a few questions. I'm 22 years old. I'm 5'5 and weight 153 pounds. I wear a 30HH. At least, that's the closest size to what fits. I have slight spillage, but I can't find anything more accurate.  Clearly, you can see why I want a breast reduction. I've been thinking about it for years. At the moment, I don't have insurance, nor do I have the money to pay for the surgery. I'm willing to make changes to pay for it though. I'd really like to have a reduction before I get married and start a career. I will graduate from graduate school in May 2013, and I'm hoping to be married in summer 2014.  My boyfriend is dead set on having kids. I'm assuming that I am going to be pregant around summer 2015.  So, that leaves me with a big choice. I would like to get my breast reduction surgery right after graduation so I'd have time to heal before my job started in the fall.  BUT, if I get pregnant 3 years later, what will that do to my breasts? Obviously I know they will get larger, but I didn't know what to expect in terms of permanent growth. Furthermore, how likely is it that I would be able to breast feed? I'm mostly worried about the long term effects of pregnancy on my breasts. I'd really like to have a BR sooner as opposed to later, but would waiting after I have children be a better option?   Has anyone here had children after a BR? If so, what happened to your breasts? Do you think it was a good idea to do it before kids?  Sorry for the long post, I'm just trying to sort my thoughts. Thank you all so much!
