What do breasts usually look like?

Okay, I know the question sounds weird, but I never paid any attention to what my breasts looked like until now, and I don't know if what I'm seeing is normal or not. I am c. 12 days post-ovulation, and desperately hoping I'm pg. The only real difference this month over all other months is that my breasts have been sore for the past 3 days or so. They're not very sore, but I don't think I ever had sore breasts as a pre-menstrual thing.

Anyway, so I have one prominent green-blue vein on the top of each aereola, curving around the side. I can also see a few other green-blue veins, but not as clearly. I'm also noticing tons of very very thin purplish-red lines just below the skin. Is this normal? I always had some little white bumps, and I can't tell if there are any new ones forming.

Any input?

One of the tip offs that I was pregnant was sore breasts. They looked the same though. Have you taken a test?

I took a test a couple of days ago, and it came up negative. Which makes sense, given that the box says "can be taken as early as the day your period is due," and mine isn't due until Sunday. So I'm going to wait until Sunday to test again. Thanks.

An early sign of pregnancy is a darkening of the areola. It's usually a light brown color, but if it looks really dark, chances are you're pregnant because of the addition of the sore breasts. Good luck!

One thing I noticed was the veins my breast became ALOT more darker and noticable. I've never had them this dark before and I knew it was a sign! Good luck on sunday!! Hope you get a BFP!

You veins get larger when your pregnant to compensate for the inreased blood suppley so prominent viens are a sign, I dont know if it would be this early though

I took another EPT today and it was negative. My nipples are still sort of sore though, and they look darker than usual (the rest of the areolae hasn't changed color). I'm expecting my period today, and there's no sign of it yet. If it doesn't come by Wednesday, I guess I'll test again.
