Very Early Pregnancy Symptom
Symptom DetailsWithin the first few weeks after conception many women may notice tiny bumps on the areolas. These are Montgomery's tubercles and are not a cause for concern. They are tiny glands that secrete a type of oil to help protect and lubricate the skin around the nipple during breastfeeding. Some also believe the odour of the oil may stimulate the appetite of the newborn. The number of glands varies between women from only 4 to 20 or more.

**NOTE: Data for 15-21 dpo tends to be lower than expected as many women stop tracking symptoms after a positive pregnancy test.
