I'm generally a bit modest, so this is a bit embarrassing for me, but...

I am due any day with dc1. My tips of my nipples have these black spots on them. I'm not really sure how to describe them except maybe as really small scabs? Is this normal? Or something that could cause me problems?

I had those too. DD is now 6 mo.
I think it is just little crusty blood due to breast growth during pregnancy.

Thanks! I'm glad to hear it didn't cause you any problems.
