Im 37 weeks pregnant my nipples feels like there is burning, what is going on?

Normal: Hormonal effect on the breast tissues.These hormones prepare the breasts to get a good supply of blood and to activate the mammary glands. The veins in the breasts get engorged with blood and this is mainly responsible for nipples burning during pregnancy. The best method to minimize the discomfort caused by breast changes is to wear bras that fit well or compress the breasts. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

Im 33 weeks pregnant and both my nipples are in a lot of pain it feels like there burning or being sliced off is this normal?

Yes: Unfortunately, this is a side effect of pregnancy. The effects of the hormones on your nipples is causing this. Sometimes it can feel, if you barely touch them, that they are burning or being poked with hot flames or stabbed with a knife. Lovely, right? It can come and go. You can try a cold compress or tylenol (acetaminophen). Sorry about that. Pregnancy is hard on the body, right? ...Read more

My girlfriends nipples are burning and itchy, but her boobs aren't growing. It's been a week since her period ended. Is she pregnant?

My girlfriends nipples are burning and itchy, but her boobs aren't growing. 
It's been a week since her period ended. 
Is she pregnant?

Maybe not, but...: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If she gets her next NORMAL regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

Recommend Dr eval.: I would see your OB-GYN or primary care doctor regarding this. It is definitely abnormal to be having stabbing/burning pain on or around your nipples unless there is an irritant (chemical or physical) that is causing it or there could be a problem underneath the skin layer causing the pain. It is hard to say without a more detailed history and exam however. I would not ignore it. ...Read more

Hard to tell...: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

I'm 8 wks pregnant Im feeling dizzy after breakfast and having weird feeling in my chest no burning just tightness is it normal or something serious?

Chest tightness: At eight weeks of pregnancy, your "chest tightness" is most probably not related to your pregnancy. If your breathing is difficult, and continues, go to an urgent care center for evaluation. The "dizziness" may be related to the chest tightness or to irregular heartbeat, and needs evaluation if it continues. ...Read more
