OWIE! Why do my nipples hurt and why are they so erect?

I am 34 weeks pregnant and I have VERY sore and erect nips. Why? Is this normal?

How come there is nothing about it in my baby books?

  • Maybe you're reading the wrong books? LOL. They can only cover so much. Typically the breasts will go through lots of changes during pregnancy and most certainly will afterwards. I guess most of the talk is about them swelling and engorging, but the nipples tend to change a lot, too, in color, shape, and erectness. Eventually the sensitivity will lessen, but they may forever be changed.

    You're normal. :)
