When in your pregnancy did your nipples start to get bigger? Pre-pregnancy I had very small areolas and the ball of my nipples very small and almost flat, when not hard they were even with the areola, and when hard barely stuck out. I am almost 16 weeks pregnant now, and while they have gotten a little darker, I have noticed very little change in the size of my nipples, including the "ball" of it. It may stick out a tad farther but not really noticeably and it definitely has me very concerned with whether or not I'll be able to breastfeed. I want desperately to breast feed and I am curious if there are woman who had their nipples get bigger in the 3rd trimester or something?? Or if there are woman with "flat" nipples who were able to breastfeed? I feel like they should have gotten bigger by now but they aren't seeming to.
