So I took a shower tonight and I noticed 2 new things. One, the base of my nipples are turning darker, almost brown red. And two.. I now have these white dots (some areas groups of white dots) all over my areolae. I've never had these. Is it part of being pg?

Completely normal. This is your body preparing to nourish your baby

I'm having the opposite. My nipples aren't getting much darker. Is it just as normal for that happen? They look bigger and perhaps darker than pre-pg, but they're not turning dark brown or anything.

My guess and it's only that from my own personal experience would be its different with every person. My first pregnancy they were just sore and a little fuller not real noticeable changes. The second time they hurt more and I had the white dots and such. The third time they grew quite a bit and they changed colors. This time DH noticed a color change right away I have had the white this time around yet but I'm guessing it may come. It's been different each time so I would say its normal it was normal for me

That's normal, too. Every person's reactions to hormones are different.

My nipples got much much larger with my pregnancy with DD and much darker (with the white bumps) and they've stayed large (but gotten lighter in color again) since I weaned her. They are getting dark again with this pg.

Everyone's body will do different things and look very different during pregnancy. I honestly would not be concerned if your nipples do or don't get dark and/or do or don't get larger...happens to many but not all.

i got the white bumps last time, and towards the end my nipples got HUGE and super dark. I was like "where the heck did these things come from? I belong on Nat Geo!" lol. Good news is they will eventually go back to normal.

LOL. Well my breasts started getting bigger right away, before I even got my BFP. They just felt "in the way" you could say. Not that they looked bigger, but like when I'd reach for something I found it felt like I was brushing side boob more lol. But about a week after my bfp even DH was noticing my bbs getting big. Now they're a cup size larger. My nipples haven't gotten bigger, but they hurt a lot. My bbs feel more firm when I poke them lol. And the darkness around the base of the nipples and white bumps is all my breast changes so far.

It seems like my boobs were much more sore with my first. They got pretty dark, too. This time, the boob itself hasn't really been sore at all, but my nips feel like someone is pinching them almost constantly. OW! And, they are bright pink and my headlights are out constantly. Not too much fun! They are fuller, though, and I think that is kind of nice. lol
