Montgomery glands

i looked it up

white spots around nipples on areloas. Do not pop them, look like pimples. I remember having them after child birth a few years later.

Thanks fatfamily02. Let me run something by you and see what you think...If you don't mind. About 3 weeks ago my breasts started to grow...Slightly tender but nothing to get riled up about, then nipples became slightly tender and sensitive...Not so much now (only if u push on them), had some bloating, big appetite. Af due 8/1 and about 5 days ago I started barely spotting pink slimy stuff, next day more red but not alot, next day more heavy spotting and reddish brown, not enough to fill a pad but frequent (nothing like a period flow), next day slowed down only every hour or so and still reddish, today almost nothing, just a spot maybe twice today all day. My breasts are still larger (left one way more than right) and my left nipple is much darker and has some white spots not bumps. I am not sure if this is just uneven coloration or what but I did not ever notice that before. I have put on 5 lbs in the last week which I am sure is from the appetite. I have had 3 very restless night where I just can't fall asleep....What do you think? I did a hpt this morning and got a negative. Very frustrating and confusing..Any advice will be helpful...Thanks....Jamie

I have to tell you that everything you wrote about I have experienced too in the last 2 weeks!!! My breasts are sore, got very plump and tender, I felt bloated and had "strange" crampy-like feelings in my lower abdomen and I could just sense something was very different. I started to get very nauseated a couple days after the believed conception date. Just this morning I noticed the "white spots" on my nipples as well!! It looks very weird!!! I took a home pregnancy test on saturday (even though I was spotting) and it came out negative....I noticed some the next day (sunday)...Not enough to fill a pad though for both days though. I am usually a heavy bleeder.... I've read that I should test again a week later just incase I am pregnant. I've also read on other internet postings that others have experienced bleeding and have had negative home pregnancy tests but were in fact pregnant and further along than they have believed!!! So yes, our stories sound extremely similar!!! I feel your confusion!!! Let me know what you end up finding out if you are pregnant or not or if it's just our hormones playing tricks on us!!!

Ive heard a lot of them talking about those lite period, spotting and then nothing say it could be implantation bleeding and it usuall happens right before your expected period, or right during, some even right after expected mensus.

I never had that, and lots of them say sometime within the flow they also mention brown blood,, which means old blood. Which could just mean takes a little longer to come out. Or could be from last cycle, or even from something else.

Good luck both of you

Well, cherylgail, I know how confused you feel. Me too!! I have had no other show of a normal af since the light bleeding. I did a hpt on the 3rd with a negative result. Af was due 8/1 so I was sure it would give me a positive. I have been getting very frequent headaches now...Almost everyday. I haven't gotten nauseas...Just a wierd kinda lightheaded feeling...Just strange. I can't tell if my smell has heightened or I am just more aware of it now....I thought I would test again around the 11th or so and if I get a negative then I guess I will either wait out the next af or go to the doc...I am about due for my yearly anyways...Sept I think. Keep me updated on your condition...Email me...We'll be confused together....Good luck...Baby dust to you!!

I noticed some white spots on my nipples and areola in the bath just now and so googled it and came up with your conversation. I'm intrigued now as I seem to be going through similar things.

Basically, since last saturday I have been so so bloated, and have been having stomach cramps which is quite unusual for me. I have been really tired, and battle to go to sleep early enough. I have also had a runny tummy for a couple days this week as well. Nothing too serious though. I have not been feeling completely right either as have felt a little nauseus and did bring it up a little but nothing projectile! My smell has heightened as well. My breasts have been really tender for the last 2 weeks now, and then this morning I noticed the white spots.

I'm just wondering what your thoughts are on this. Other things to consider are that I am on anti-biotics for tonsillitus, I do suffer from thrush which seems to keep coming back, even though it's been treated. And I have just recently changed my contraceptive pill (on 2nd pack now). I thought these symptoms were just from the new pill, and started my period 3 days ago, which is much heavier than usual. And to be completely frank to get an honest reply from you, I did have unprotected sex about 3 weeks ago. Idon't think I'm pregnant as I'm having my period and it's so heavy, but you never know! Not sure if this changes anything, but just to plead my case correctly to cut out all unsure things!

Please send me your thoughts. thanks

Okay, well I did a home pregnancy test yesterday afternooon, and it came back negative. How trustworthy are these tests? Also, as I mentioned before I am having my period at the moment - will that affect the result? Should I test again in a couple days, go to the doctor or jst leave it at that?

hi katie,
i'm going into my 10th week of pregnancy at the moment. i took a test after being 9 days late for my period and it came back positive. as i've had no morning sickness i thought it may have been a mistake. last week i took another test and again it came back positive. i've had a lot of tenderness in the breast and have already increased a cup size. one thing i was always told is that taking a test and getting a negative can be a false negative as you may have taken the test a little too early for hormone levels to increase, however you cannot get a false positive. i would make an appointment with your doctor. the bleeding you talk about can just be implanting, which is when the embrio burrows itself in the womb to make sure it is attatched and safe.

not even three three weeks ago i was having really bad abdominal pain. So i went to the emergency room, the doctor said he gave me a pregnancy test and and he said it came back negative. As of yesterday, i started having really sore nipples. Today I noticed, little white speckles on both nipples. And periodically like once a day, sometimes more, i have a really sharp pain, almost like getting stabbed, in my lower abdomen and/or lower back. i'm really curious to know what it is. Oh, my menstrual cycle use to come like every 8th-10th day of the month. But as of the past two months i've gotten it on the 26th. isn't that strange?? can someone explain?

negative tests but still think i am pregnant
okay so i have been going through a similar situation as everybody else here. for almost 2 months now i have not been feeling like myself. I started what i thought was my period June 30th but it was much lighter than normal...i am usually very regular and quite heavy.Also i had very mild cramping during my period...normally only first day and intense, and they continued for a few weeks after. I was also feeling heavy or bloated in my lower abdomen. I went to the doc and he immediately suspected i was pregnant, so did the blood serum test, which was neg. I waited a little longer but then i started to feel sick everyday and very tired. I went back to the doc thinking that the last test was done to early. He didn't do another pregnancy test but sent me for an ultrasound...with no results. My next "period" again was not my normal cycle. It had a lot of dark brown blood in it and a clot that kind of reminded me of a deflated balloon. Since then my boobs have been getting sore and they have white spots on my nipples(showed up about a week before my last period an have remained)also the veins are more visible. I also have to pee so many times a day...like right now! In the last 3 days i took a home pregnancy every day. the first and last test looked like they might be positive... very very faint, but the one in the middle was defiantly negative. I don't know what to do! I really think i am pregnant but am not getting any positive results. I swear people are staring to think i am crazy or making it up. Any thoughts?
