  • I have a vein that pops out on my left boob. I feel like the Incredible Hulk LOL! Sounds normal

  • All normal...the veining system is much more visible when you're breastfeeding. Yes, it all goes away.

  • my nipples and areolas stayed darker but thats not a big issue, otherwise they do go back to normal

  • It's very normal for our breasts to change while we are breastfeeding. Unless you are experiencing extreme pain, i would consider it very normal. My areola's turned brown when i breastfed, & the areolas were not so round anymore, they turned oval. Not sure if that's what you meant, but that is very normal.

  • It's normal and hormone related and will go away sometime after you wean and your homrones level back out.
