I am currently overdue and for last week or so I have noticed that my left nipple is swollen and misshapen when I wake up. I mentioned it my midwife who said I needed to see my GP. I am a little worried my appointment might be too late. Has anyone else had this? Did it continue after birth? Any advice how to prevent it?

For background, I had terrible problems with mastitis with DS hence my probable paranoia now. This included mastitis twice during pregnancy and 5 times in 10 weeks (including two hospital admissions) postnatally. The only reason I stopped getting it was by stopping feeding. My concern is that although I have had no mastitis this pregnancy this is sign of things to come. I would really appreciate any advice / experiences.
