About what week in pregnancy do your nipples get darker? I spotted on the 13-16 and now my nipples are darker. And my breasts and nipples are slightly sensitive.

  • mine never did so IDK... I'm pretty sure it happens more in darker complected people, and I'm like casper the ghost LOL. I'm fairly sure though that it happens later in the pregnancy, after hormones have had a chance to really work on your system. I did get a dark line on my belly but that wasn't until like 5 months.

    best advice for figuring out if you are pregnant or not - Take a HPT or go to the doc and have a blood test done.

  • Mine got dark before I got a positive on my pregnancy test -- all three pregnancies. I remember with my first child getting ready for a shower and being shocked at how dark they were - that was when I first started to suspect. (He wasn't planned)
