Hi,<br>
Im not sure if Im pregnant yet, I am 9dpo right now. But I have a question.<br>
My nipples have been sore since 3dpo and the last few days it looks like the dark area around my nipples is getting bigger. But I read its supposed to get darker if your PG. Anyone ever had it get bigger but not necessarily darker and be PG?

it generally gets BIGGER and DARKER. for some it may be more one than the other. but generally it's both. (I do lactation help as well as BFing my kiddos so I've seen it all lol)

I noticed that my areolas were puffy and swollen-looking about 10 dpo (got my positive at 12 dpo). I noticed the areolas before I had sore nipples.

mine nipples were the first thing i notced changing. then my breats started getting fuller. (I didn't need that, they are big enough as it is!! so for me this is always a turn off about pregnancy... though my husband never complains hehe)

My nipples didn't darken until later in pregnancy...more like 2nd trimester. Before that, they just got bigger (much bigger, eek) and, yeah, breasts fuller and often warm to the touch.

This is not necessarily true. If you have very little pigmentation (I have VERY fair skin), your areolas and nipples don't get darker.
