  • I'm 26wks and YESSS this is normal. I know it's very gross and it makes you very self conscious. My nipples are very dry, flaky, and there are different little compartments that didnt exist before I was pregnant!!!! On top of that I have a dark ring around my areola that looks like the TARGET symbol lol!! I asked my mom and she said it will definitely go away. It was also painful for me (when trying to pull off the skin) I started gently rubbing it off while in the shower or just after I got out b/c the skin was softer, you can also use some type of creme. I use Vasaline Cocoa Butter Deep Condition Cream. I also use it on my belly and back at night. It's GREATTT!!
