    Question Did you have veins pop up on your breasts and areola before you got a BFP?

    Hi, I've read that your veins on your breasts and areolas darken or are visible in early stages of pregnancy. Did that happen to everyone or anyone? I know the areolas darken but I was wondering about the veins. My cycle's a little off but late so I'm just looking for any little signs that I may be pregnant. I'm not really nauseas but my breasts were very very sore around the sides and top(not as bad now) and I've noticed veins, I've also had a headache today and just feel.....not myself. Anyway I'd appreciate any responses and any other early pregnancy signs you had. Thanks!

    My bbs had blue veins and small bumps around the nipple for at least a year or two before I actually got pregnant. I chalked this up to crazy hormones due to PCOS.

    However my bbs weren't ever sore before my periods (EVER) until I actually was pregnant.

    I did have more obvious blue veins in my bbs, they were tender and my nipples stayed erect for the last week. I am now 14dpiui and preggers. I also had a lot of headaches, heartburn and I am tired a lot. Hope this helps and good luck.

    On previous cycles I had either sore bbs, or sore nipples, but never both. On my BFP cycle, I had both.

    As far as the veins, I always have had big veins showing in my breasts but when I was about 7 months pregnant the veins started sticking out of my skin, they were really raised.

    As far as darkened aereolas, mine didn't darken until I was about 7 months pregnant.

    When I was about 5-6 months pregnant the whole nipple/areola area would be ON FIRE once and a while... maybe once a week (this still happens every so often) and it seriously feels like someone is holding a match to my bbs. It hurts really bad and it lasts a few minutes.

    At 5 weeks 6 days I started noticing the veins on my boobs. I never saw them before cause I'm large chested but they're horribly visible now. At 5 weeks 5 days it was the veins on my hands/wrists/feet that were showing clearly. I thought I'd gotten greeny blue dye on my skin somehow

    i got veiny boobs at 12-13 dpo which is one day before i tested and got bfp, my boobs were not sore or enlarged and the areola had not changed. i also had headaches (but this is not unusual for me) and very occasional mild cramps, i had a tiny spot of blood day before AF was due. 14 dpo got BFP and later that day started to feel really lightheaded and on/off cramps. im only 15 dpo now, still feeling lightheaded, hungry and tired. early days, and i had practically no symptoms til the day AF was due. Good Luck Mrs Z

    I noticed dark blue veins a few days before my period was due the month I was pregnant. I was totally looking for signs though!

    The only thing different for me was that I very sore breasts. But the veins and the darkening of the areolas doesn't usually happen until you're further along in the pregnancy, when the amount of estrogen and progesterone in your body is at it's peak.
