I know that your breasts will become sore and your nipples and the skin around them will change color.

This is a pregnancy symptom, however it is also a symptom that your period is about to arrive. Take a pregnancy test if you miss your period

The rings around your nipples are what change in colour and are due to the changes in the hormones that your body is creating.

It can be. If you are having symptoms that are unusual for you around the time of your period, then yes, they can very well be signs of pregnancy. Common symptoms women notice when they are early in their pregnancies are: Nausea, sore breasts and nipples, increase or decrease in appetite, increased urination, more emotional, breakouts, and an increase in cervical mucous.

The best and most reliable way to find out if you're pregnant or not is to take a pregnancy test. These can be bought from a pharmacy or supermarket, or can be done at the doctor's. A pregnancy test can be taken 3 weeks after sex. Some other symptoms of pregnancy are: Missed period Headaches Feeling/being sick Needing to pee more Certain smells/foods/colours making you feel/be sick Exhaustion Moody and emotional Sore/tender breasts Food/smell cravings pregnancy test! you can do a pregnancy test at your doctor. if you don't want to be tester, missing 2 periods in a row is usually a sign of pregnancy Some symptoms include not havening your period/being late, morning sickness, growth of belly(then you would now) and i got this off of a web site: A missed or a delayed menstruation cycle is the most reliable symptom of pregnancy. Implantation Bleeding is the earliest symptom of pregnancy. This happens about eight days after the conception resulting in spotting and cramping. Swollen/Tender Breasts is another early symptom that can be seen after 1 or 2 weeks of conception. Many women may notice that their breasts have become tender to the touch or have turned sore. Fatigue or a feeling of tiredness that may begin within the first week of conception is also a early pregnancy symptom. Nausea/Morning Sickness is another well known symptom that may show up after about 2 to 8 weeks after conception. Lower Backaches is another early symptom of pregnancy. Frequent Urination occurs after 6 to 8 weeks of pregnancy and is very common symptom of pregnancy. Darkening of Areolas or the skin around the nipples. Food Cravings for certain kinds of food indicates a presence of pregnancy and can last throughout the period. Rectal Bleeding. go here for an online pregnancy test: http://www.baby-parenting.com/pregnancy/online_pregnancy_test.html

Symptoms can vary from woman to woman, as well as from pregnancy to pregnancy. Usually the first symptom is increased breast sensitivity. You may feel they are a lot heavier/nipples darker/raised lumps around nipples or just generally painful to touch. You may also feel more tired than usual.And from experience, your mood flips and changes erratically!

Yes, this is true, you can rub toothpaste all around on your breasts or just on the nipples and in time, they will increasingly grow larger, maybe a cup or so.

For some people they get itchy nipples as early as 2 weeks after sex. But for most people that doesn't start until around 6 weeks of pregnancy. It's different for each woman.

User Avatar

Yes but a lot of women naturally have bumps around their aerolas. Wait until your period arrives.

User Avatar

its very common though not everyone experiences this as a pms symptom, many do. its perfectly normal

The nipples are around her tummy

I have just noticed the same thing except they are both the same color...dark brown circles around my areolas. Along with extremely sore breasts, mood swings that make my fiance nuts, and on and off nausua...do you have any other these aside from sore breasts?

Your nipples should be growing as you grow, this includes your breasts. There is no exact age although usually around your early teens they should start to develop and then stop usually late teens. Although as I said there is not set in answer.

For some women it takes a while for pregnancy symptoms to appear. Usually around 8 wks pregnant symptoms appear. Typically your first symptom is missing your period.

It is not a symptom of pregnancy. Although it is not uncommon during pregnancy though. Try using an anti-breakout acne-wash to help.

The area around the nipple does change in pregnancy , the breasts get bigger before this symptom though. Pregnancy isn't the only thing that cause's that though. Many things can change the could or the areola such as diet's , being ill and many other things . You should get more obvious signs of pregnancy before the colour change of the nipple. I would suggest you go to your GP or family planning clinic for a pregnancy test though if you do suspect your pregnant. Hope this helps , Kimberleigh !

Yes, and you might not have even noticed before you were pregnant, but there is actually a good bit of hair around the areola beforehand.

User Avatar

yes, breast changes significantly! They become bigger, firmer and the circles around nipples become much darker. At the end of pregnancy they sometimes start leaking colostrum.

User Avatar

what are some of the reason bumps around the nipples become dry

User Avatar

None whatsoever. Just be careful about plucking or pulling hairs out that could lead to an infection if the area is not squeaky clean.
