My mom says that sometimes when a woman is in labor, her nipples "go in"??? I never heard of it, but my breasts, nipples mainly; have been hurting more and more and a few minutes ago felt like someone was poking them really hard... could that be a sign?? I'm just curious. And how would that happen anyway? What would it feel like? Kinda confused. TIA

There are people with inverted nipples, but I don't think that happens because of labor. :) If anything, your b**bs and nipples probably stick out more. As far as b**b pain being a sign of labor, I've never personally experienced that. My b**bs were an off an on issue for my entire pregnancy.

Now if you stimulate your nipples, that will cause contractions. I don't think it works in reverse though.

i heard the nipple stinging pain sensations was your b**bs getting ready for lactation and breast feeding. i was born with inverted/flat nipples, so if mine turn in anymore i'll really look like a freak lol
