Yes...
Mine actually became dark around 10 1/2 weeks preggy. Mine are now like a maroon/purple color. I can also see large veins leading to my nipple. This is totally normal and nothing to worry about. You will also start to notice those little bumps on your areola more now as well. Your nipples might become hard more often now too. These are all of the things that have happened to me and I found out that they are completely normal!!

My breast have actually started to leak. Just as a heads up, that's normal too!!

Hope this could help you!!!

My nipples have gotten darker and they have grown from a 32a to a 32c in 9 weeks. I really hope that they don't get much bigger....However I can see my blood veins they are really dark blue. (funny how blood shows up blue in the body) anyway I have been told that it's normal. No need to worry.

Thats very normal and I think pretty much happens to everyone during pregnancy. I am 21 weeks and i'm mixed so I have an olive complextion as it is and my nipples were a brown color before pregnancy. But they have gotten alot darker since.
