  • mine took a little while, but they do start to look different pretty quickly...they get darker and then the area around the nipple starts to spread and get bigger

  • Mine got a little darker. I noticed the veins in my breasts more though. Both are pretty common in pregnancy.

  • Yes, mine did. By 10 weeks mine were much darker than usual. That'll go away after pregnancy and if you nurse they'll stay dark til you wean.

  • Mine only did towards the end, then they went back to normal within months of giving birth...btw we are still nursing at 16 months and I'm pregnant again, so not everyone's nipples get dark right away or stay dark until you wean.

  • Mine never did, but it's normal if they do.

  • Mine are just now starting to darken at almost 6 weeks...with my 1st by the end they looked like burnt pancakes lol so they just darken little by little! .:.:.:BABY DUST:.:.:.

  • Yeah - mine did with each pregnancy - they do go back to normal afterward though!

    Not all women have the same symptoms & indeed not the same symptoms in each of their seperate pregnancies. Confusing huh!?
