  • Yeah, how far along are you. I'm just into my 18th week today and now I'm noticing the areola darkening(I guess it's harder to tell too cuz we see our boobs all the time, so it's harder to notice the difference, it happens gradually). And even though I'm getting a serious belly, still just soft and squishy, LoL. But the baby hasnt' filled it out yet, so to say, so I expect it to start getting harder soon, as the baby is getting bigger. It's my 3rd child and I can't remember this stuff either, lol, I've been wondering the tummy question too.

  • In my first pregnancy, my breasts didn't start to leak until I was around 24 weeks. In my second pregnancy, a little sooner. Some women never leak at all!

  • My nipples never changed color with my first pregnancy! I have only "leaked" if I tried to express them. I am breastfeeding also with this pregnancy and don't even leak now! Everyone is different and you may not have some of the common side effects!

  • My nipples never changed color during both pregnancies and I never leaked during pregnancy. I leaked a little while nursing the first few months after, but after about6months with both I could stop wearing leak pads in my bra. Every one is different and at 6 weeks you are not likely to see too many outward physical changes.

  • Mine got darker towards the end and bigger...everyone is different though. I didn't leak until after I started breastfeeding. I had a hard round belly around 7mo with my first one.
