According to the prego apps im 2 weeks. Is itchy breast and nipples an early sign of pregnancy? This has been goin on for a couple weeks now.

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that sore nipples are definitely part of pregnancy.  Itchy nipples are more likely to be caused by candida/yeast.  I would suggest getting some Nystatin topical ointment--it can be purchased at any drug store--and applying to the nipples for several days.  Alterantively, you could request a prescription from you doctor for Diflucan which would also help.
Be sure to discuss with your provider at your  first ob visit!
Good luck!
Dr B

Have you taken a test? Two weeks is pretty early to know.

No I haven't I thought it was too early to test but I did ask a nurse and she said I might be. So I'll just wait awhile

Hi I had really itchy nipples early on for every pregnancy. ( I've been pregnant 6 times now). This was usually the first sign for me.
