Breast in pregnancy: Breasts in pregnancy engorge (increase in size) and often start secreting milk even before the baby is born. They also become more sensitive especially in the beginning. Their texture becomes lumpier and the skin reveals extensive venous net.

Yes: Many of the discomforts that happen in the beginning of pregnancy like breast tenderness and nausea get better as you progress along. Don't worry though, there are more discomforts coming like back and hip pain later on :).

Probably OK: If you are attempting pregnancy, you should be seeing a gyn anyway, but i bet you that this is just a side to side difference you have just never noticed. If you were to take 2 pictures of your anatomical body, cut the pictures in 1/2 and paste right to right and left to left, you would not recognize yourself in either.

Is it possible for your breast to become slightly bigger after becoming sexualy active without being pregnant?

No, but...: The simple act of having sex does not stimulate any significant hormonal activity sufficient to make the breasts enlarge. Make sure you're not pregnant absolutely! the more likely answer is that you are still growing and maturing and gaining weight; that you may see some enlargement everywhere, including the breasts. Keep up with your diet & exercise program to minimize general weight gain.
