Bumps on my Areolas (Montgomery's tubercles?)

areola



I am currently 8 dpo, going on 9 dpo...

I have been reading on the Montgomery's tubercles because as of yesterday, I have noticed a change in my areolas. I thought I was trippin until it caught my eye again today when I look down at my breasts after taking a shower. This is not normal for me. It is nothing I was looking for, it actually caught my eye on its own. My boyfriend seems to notice a change of color, however, I can't really tell. From what I have read, this seems to be an early sign of pregnancy. My boobs are only sore on the outer parts of them (this is normal before my period). Nipples are barely sore right now. I am expected to start my next cycle this Sat the 7th at the earliest and Tuesday the 10th at the latest.

I am just looking for honest feedback on what I am going through. I refuse to test until I miss my period. I am not necessarily looking for a reason to get my hopes up, I simply just need to know what this could mean and if this has happened to anyone else a week after conception?

PLEASE HELP!!

I forgot to mention, I normally have one or two bumps, but now everything just looks more prominent. Hard to explain. Almost like white dots (not all of them are actual bumps) surrounding the area around the area that is around my nipples.

Don't drive yourself crazy symptom spotting.  Clomid can make your body mimic pregnancy signs.  I don't want to be a downer, and REALLY hope that this is it for you - you know that!!!  I just want you to be aware that you are putting extra hormones in your body and that can cause changes.  You are going to drive yourself crazy with every single thing you feel, see, notice....I can't say this enough - RELAX.  I know it's hard, I know it $uck$ trying to not think about it, but you will drive yourself crazy, and your man crazy.  Still shipping out truck loads of baby dust and keeping my fingers crossed for you, though :)

xoxo

Thanks Shea!

Your right! I need to really relax. I hate when I read too much into something. Lol. I think I'm going to just let things be and worry about symptoms "when" I become prego. I don't "feel" prego so I highly doubt I am anyway. I have a strong feeling that I'm going to have to do IUI.

Thank you again for being my rock through this! *big bear hug* Its appreciated more than you know : )! And thank you for the baby dust! Xoxo

The first (and only) time I got pregnant, I didn't "feel" pregnant either.  I was lucky, I knew nothing about all this TTC junk.  I took my first ever round of clomid, got my shot on cd13, BD'd - waited 14 days and tested.  I didn't feel anything until about a week later, and even then it was just sore boobs, terrible heartburn, and an insatiable craving for Buffalo Wild Wings.  haha.  Just don't overthink it :)  

We all need to lean on one another through this, I think.  I'd definitely go crazy without you guys.

Hi Shea....it was great when we were blissfully unaware that ttc would take sometime, i remember my 1st 6 months when we had fun, bd'd and new nothing about temps, opks, CM etc...what we didnt know didnt stress us out!  We are our own worst enemies cause we now know too much, so question everything lol 8 )

Oh I know - I was so naive about everything.  Until I had my blighted ovum with that pregnancy and became a victim of internet information overload.  For the longest time I was a TTC crazy lady. haha.  I have since calmed down over the last few months and am ready to relax and let things progress forward as they should.
