Wow!! I just realized just how huge my nipples and areolas are.
My areola us basically the same length as my pinky finger is long.
My nipples when hard go to the size of a baby bottle nipple.
Holy moly.
Dh noticed last night and got so excited about the size.
Wth! Lol !!

It's crazy what pregnancy does to a woman's body! With my first son I was amazed at how they changed, and so early on.

With my first child, my areolas got soooo huge and dark. They went from pale pink, to dark brown. From then on, my areola stayed large, and never did go back to pink, but lightened up to a much lighter brown. They haven't changed much yet this time around. Besides being super sensitive to any and every thing. It's amazing how pregnancy changes us and many times permanently.

Lol. The look on dh's face was priceless. He immediately had to try them out to see how they fit in his mouth. Lol. It was like a kid on Christmas morning.

LOL, mine are my pinky length, too!!! (although they always were big...)

And also went from pink to dark brown during my first PG and are light brown when not PG. They are SO DARK now, though! DH and both DDs have to make a comment every time they see them!

I've always had teeny ones that are super pale. Even now (as a nursing mama), they are only about a half a pinky length... only JM would have me measuring my nipples with my pinky for reference

I feel like this happened to me overnight! Friday evening, I was looking at the difference in my body in the mirror and couldn't get over the size difference. My bbs have grown pretty significantly (from 36 C to 38 D), but the nip difference is a whole new development.

Mine are quite large too. When the LC came to help me with DD she said, "you have great nipples." Which is awesome since my boobs are mediocre at best. Not much to them, but I've got the nipple thing going for me!

That is promising! I hope mine are good! LOL they must be. They are shaped exactly like a bottle nipple! I am guessing the nipples are a big part of BF'ing? lol. They are so so sensitive!!

Yeah, totally same here. I have a hard time concealing the headlights. Been needing to use padded bras, which make the ol' C cups (now D cups) even BIGGER. I feel like a porn star.

DH is totally obsessed. He also had to "test them out."

Mine are big but they've always been big or at least as long as I can remember . I remember the lactation ladies saying the aeriola should be in the baby's mouth (the whole thing) and I just looked at it and said "you've got to be kidding, he'll choke!"
