Mine are already getting darker, but not larger. A photographic book of pregnancy that I have (Lennart Nielsson's A Child Is Born) says that they'll start changing at about our time now. But I really thought it was later with my two children, more like after 20 weeks. Maybe I just don't remember correctly?

Mine started darkening this time before I even got a postive pregnancy test. With my son it seemed like they changed later on in the second trimester.

both times for me, I noticed the montgomery's tubercles (is that what they're called-- or "glands" maybe) were popping out within a few days/weeks of getting a BFP. These look like white and pink pimples, for lack of a better term-- so mine already look pinker (not darker yet, i think that does come later at least for me) and spotted


even DH noticed-- when he saw the "pimples" around week 6, he goes, "oh, ok-- you are pregnant!"


p.s. my areolas are already large to begin with.....

Mine got larger with my first pregnancy and never went back! I noticed they were darker soon after I found out I was pregnant with this babe- and just a couple weeks ago I also noticed all the Montgomery's tubercles.

I'm not sure. Mine changed slowly when I was pg with DS and I don't think they every went back to normal. However, I've been pg and/or nursing for 6 years straight now. The entire breast is more perky than it used to be but still haven't become much larger. I'm 10 weeks.

there are usually ON the areola-- for me, just outside the perimeter of my nipples
