Areola changes durring pregnancy
I wanted to start a new thread for this one. I had asked about breastfeeding and someone mentioned how big their nipples got. That got me thinking.... I know my nipples got bigger with my last pregnancy, I can't remember if they stay that big??

They are huge right now. I mean it's like national geographic or at least internet worthy. Are they going to go back to a normal size or do they stay this big?

LOL! Internet worthy! That's hilarious! Mine too have gotten bigger. If they were magnetic they could certainly point due north on a cold day, and the areola can make up for the rest.

Well my areolas have turned chocolate brown (they used to be pink) and now they are HUGE, still round but HUGE. The nipple is not as big as the areola.  And I sure hope that they get smaller because its really not that pretty :(

They may never be "back to normal" after pregnancy and breastfeeding, but they will probably get smaller and lighten up some.  I don't think there is one thing on my body that will ever be "back to normal".

It's amazing what pregancy can do to our bodies! I have noticed that my areolas have gotten bigger, but my nipples aren't too much bigger. BUT they are stretchier now. It's weird.

i just had my lil one 3 weeks ago and my aerolas have gotten a little smaller so far and i am pumping.  they definately are no where near the size that they were before but it also has only been 3 weeks.  and yes they get very very DARK.  the line around the outside gets so dark that it is kind of scary that your breast can change like that.

Same here, my areolas are HUGE compare to what they were before and the color is much darker....I am planning to breastfeed as well...I know my mom's never got back to her normal size after she had 2 kids..I am wondering if mine will get back to the original size? My size is B now is a C but I wouldn't want to have such HUGEST areolas forever...it doesn't look very....appealing :)
