It is too early for one to be thinking about pregnancy. A woman can start thinking about pregnancy if her period is missed, about 2 weeks after ovulation, and do a home pregnancy test a few days after that. Patience is a blessing. ...Read more
Do areolas typically darken with age? Over the past few days they've been sore and darkening&pretty sure not pregnant. 2wks until next period.
Get a pregnancy: test now. If negative, wait a week, then check another pregnancy test. If negative again, wait another week, check another pregnancy test.

They will enlarge and look more robust with pregnancy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Engorgement: Breast tissue normally expands, and later becomes engorged. The stretching of the skin around the breast can often lend itself to pain around the areola. The areola is also hypersensitized during pregnancy and after delivery to help with breastfeeding and this can cause some irritation/pain as well.
