    Default Bruising around nipples

    ..okay this is a weird one, I am a bit embarrassed to ask in case I'm the only one lol!

    So around the time AF is due I have been getting bruising, visual bruising around my nipples, also very tender breasts.. Is this normal when breastfeeding? Or what could be causing it?
    Thanks!

    Is it actually bruising? Sometimes the veins in my boobs get very pronounced and makes them look bluish when pregnant or BFing.

    It looks, and feels like actual bruising.. I don't think it's just veins.. It's just really weird. I think I might the the only one this happens too :/

    They aren't hickies, are they? I know DS use to give me them at times, and being around AF, boobs seem to be more tender and prehaps more susceptible to bruising?
