I'm 27+3 today and for the last few days have had VERY itchy nipples on and off. It last for a few minutes when I get it and moves outwards making my breasts itchy, then goes!! This can't be normal can it?! Has anyone else had this problem? It's very embarrassing when I'm at work!
Yup, happened to me at the same point. Itch, itch, itch. A week later? They had colostrum leaking out of them. I think the blood vessels and ducts waking up and starting to make the first reseves of colostrum just feels itchy tbh.
Yep!! About 20 - 30 wks, they were awfull! Really itchy and perminantly errect! They did have a sort of tiny clear scab type thing on them at one spell. not sure if it was dried milk or they had been leaking? I just kept them cool ( easy when at home, not so easy at work) Put loads of moisturiser on. Think there is some special cream, but can't remember the name? I'm 35 weeks now, and it has calmed down a bit for the past few weeks thank god! I do understand at work - I was dying to just get them out and start rubbing
oh yes, had this in end of first trimester and start of 2nd - peaked at 14-16 weeks. Maddening!!! Slathered them in bio oil, that did seem to help, as they were a bit dry, then spent an afternoon picking off dried skin - gross, but less itchy afterwards Obviously I wasn't at work that day...
