I do not know the name of those spots but their purpose is to lubricate the nipples, or rather the areola, for nursing. Even though not visible, they secrete some fatty substance. I had those too, they developed about a month or two before giving birth, but apparently not everyone gets them as dominantly. Several nurses assumed it was a fungal infection but it was just nature`s way of getting ready for breastfeeding. All the best with your countdown!

Hey Lesh, I only just read your other post - you are due in 2 days -for your AF, not for childbirth as I thought, LOL. So just disregard whatever I said, please.

Your nipples may look a little different from this time.(4-5 weeks preggers according to i am pregnant.com) You may be able to see tiny raised spots called Montgomery's tubercules on them, which will secrete an oily fluid to prepare your nipple skin for feeding.

this happens very early in pregnancy as well as being more prominent in certain individuals.
