Hello, I m in my early 20 s and there s a chance that I may be pregnant. My boyfriend pointed out to me the other day that my nipples are a lot lighter. I explained to him that when women are pregnant, their nipples get darker. He seems to think that a woman s aerolas can get lighter too, or that the areolas get lighter before they get darker. I m not so sure he is right. Can someone help me figure out who is right and why my nipples are lighter?
