I still have this and im nearly 20weeks. I try to use vaseline most days on my nipples, not just for that, but so they are ready the baby being here. the vaseline works for me.

Yes its common.  I had this with #3.  Get some lanolin.  Its works better than lotion  you can buy it at walmart or any pharmacy in the baby isle.  Good luck.
