I'm 24 weeks pregnant and only have two montgomery tubercules on left areola and four on the right. Is it a sign of problem?

No problem! :): Montgomery tubercles are simply raised areas of glands in the areola (the colored part of the breast surrounding the nipple). They secrete oils and can become enlarged, especially in pregnancy. Most women have between 4-26 glands per areola.

I am 24 weeks pregnant and my baby has not moved at all today. He usually kicks more than three times a day. Is it normal to not feel them everyday?

If you still feel no movement, it may be wise to check with your OB doctor. Sometimes at 24 weeks the movements may be small enough you miss feeling it if you are busy doing something else. ...Read more

Pregnant with 2nd,  however this pregnancy is very hard. My BP is 154/93 avg but my doc is not concerned, I am only 24 weeks, should I be concerned?

Watch closely: That's not a great bp, true, but if you have no other pih or pre-eclamptic signs / symptoms, than treating the #s may be doing just that. Keep in mind that your BP rises some whenever you exert yourself / etc., so with a goal in mind (only 16 weeks to go), it may be one less potential exposure for the baby. If protein in urine or it climbs, then will need attention. ...Read more
