Period 12/1-breast changes pregnancy test 1 week after expected period (negatif)-period 21/2-areola darkening (i think) neg test 4 days ago pregnant??
Too soon to test: If you miss your period by 4-5 days, do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.

Nothing specific: Usually the areola around the nipple darkens and the small white bumps get more prominent. Veins in the skin may become more pronounced. Some women will notice all of those in early pregnancy while others will not.
Yes: Changes in hormonal levels cause many things including breast sensitivity.
Normal: You probably have more breast tissue on one side than the other. But since you are pregnant and will see an OB soon, they will feel your breast to make sure that nothing else is going on. Congratulations.
Lactation Start?: There is no definitive time that pre-lactation begins in a pregnancy; some women experience the onset of a unilateral or bilateral clear discharge as early as 13 weeks; others, as late as 32 weeks or beyond. Tho set of lactation is merely a sign that hormone levels that stimulate lactation have reached "operational" levels, and that you are rest to breast feed when the moment arrives!
My breast didn't grow at all during pregnancy. Most of my friends went up cup sizes. Is this because I don't have much breast tissue?
Possible: Growth of breast tissue depends on how many cells all responsive to the hormone available. Not to worry you can always augment to breast at a later time if you want to.
I have inverted nipples they come out only during cold or stimulation. I also hv saggy breasts. Is it normal? M a virgin. Will pregnancy correct this?
Normal: Normal to have inverted nipples. Common in women as well as men. Not sure what HV refers to but 'saggy' breasts could be due to size or normal genetics. If it's a cosmetic issue you could address it with a plastics doctor. Pregnancy will make your breasts fuller but generally with age and after pregnancy your breasts may develop stretch marks or lose more fat so might be worse, hard to say.
Post weight loss upper pole fullness of breasts gone. Age 23.will gaining weight reverse it? During pregnancy will the breasts fill in & become larger?
Probably, yes: Probably yes, as the breasts take on fat and glandular material to ready themselves for their designated function of future breast feeding.
That can happen: Due to ^ fluid stretching the breast.
It may: That is not an uncommon experience. As your hormonal levels change and milk production begins you may experience soreness in the breast.
