My nipples have hurt throughout my pregnancy, but in the last week they seem even more sore than ever. They are kind of flaky and dry too. I have been attempting to moisturize them but to no avail. I had a very painful start with nursing DD last time and was soooooo hoping to avoid that this time, but I realize that I may be in store for some pain again. Anyone else getting increasingly sore? And its not just the nipples but right behind the nipples inside it is sore too. I have also gotten the very occasional slight sharp pain that I used to feel when I was lactating.

Do you think these things are just my body getting ready to make milk again or signs of impending labor? I have noticed dried colostrum on the tips of my nipples many times -- so I know something is going on in there!

YOu are not alone mama. My nipples are SO SORE! I think it is because I am still tandem nursing my boys (2 and 4). I have no remedy for you! Just a hug!

I've also noticed changes in my breasts...

I don't remember this from last time, but I guess it's normal! We are getting awfully close to birth...

In love with Dh since 1998. We created Ds (7.1.03), Dd (10.16.06) and Dd (3.16.09).

my nipples aren't sore, but i've been noticing what i think is dried colostrum at the tips of my nipples.

the other morning i was so excited about what i'm assuming is dried colostrum and running into the bathroom to show dh. if anybody would have told me a year ago that i'd be thrilled to have yellowish, crusty stuff on the ends of my nipples i would have told them they were crazy!

Yeah, I've been finding that dried colostrum for a few months now! It's bizarre.
