They are small little white bumps on the aerolas (the dark pigmented skin around your niples). They are a very strong indication of pregnancy. I started noticing them less than 2 weeks after we conceived. Initially they only showed up at night, but now, at 16 weeks, they are obvious all the time. :o)

The Montgomery tubercles on the areola are like sweat glands. Some women can see them most of the time. If they become more prominent or different, it would be a sign of pregnancy, puberty, or a hormone upset. Add them to your other list of signs. Good luck!

Hi, could they be actually ON the nipple instead of the aerolas?
