I noticed some strange small bumps on my nipples yesterday. Kind of in a circle all around my nipple. I never noticed these before. My breasts aren't sore. Could this be a sign I'm pregnant? I don't think I've ever read about it happening in the first trimester. I thought it was something that would happen later on.

I was just reading online about this and this is what it said : "Montgomery's Tubercules"
Definition: These are small goose bump like raised areas on the areola of your breast. This is not an additional nipple and is not a problem. This is considered a possible sign of pregnancy. Here is the web http://pregnancy.about.com/od/signssymptom s/a/25signsofpg.htm
I hope this helps

NO THEY ARE NOT A SIGN OF PREGNANCY!! The only thing about those montgomery's glands is that they increase segnificantly in size when pregnant.. if they are tiny... YOUR NOT PREGNANT... but if those bumps are very and i mean VERY large and raised... then you ARE PREGNANT


Every single woman on this planet has them... some are visible some are not... and please do not squeeze out the white substance that can be found in the glands, because you may get in infection if you do so...

and you dont want to have an infection in your nipple... it would really hurt

Honey, you are 17 and have not been pregnant and haven't even had sex yet. Please don't post things that you don't know about. Having large and raised bumps does not necessarily mean that you are pregnant.

Try being a little more sensitive in your posts instead of assuming you are correct.

I dont know if it has anything to do with pregnancy, I have them and I am not pregnant , and I didn't notice them untill after I had my first child. I think they are just normal, although who knows it could be a sign, especially if they have just showed up, or are larger, and your breasts are tender. The best way to know is to take a test.

If you think your pregnant go to the health department and get a free pregnancy test . Its better to know for sure if you are or not and if you think something is wrong with your body go to the doctors and get it checked . I am 36 weeks today and i do have little bumps around my nipples but i have had them for as long as i can remeber and my doctor told me that everybody has them . Its completly normal even my boyfriend has them but sometimes they are very hard to see . Oh and dont squeeze or try to "pop"them because it could get infected
