What Your Partner Should Know

One word: Boobs.

Two words: Don't touch.

So that growth spurt last week has already given you a shape you've never seen, and your partner might be paying extra special attention to you and those expanding body parts. The problem, though, is that they hurt. They really hurt. And they might just be a hands-free zone for at least a few more weeks.
