My breasts are incredibly sore, particularly the right one and sometimes it's so painful it's unbearable! I have got some breast cream for nursing since I was having chapped nipples.
I have had some leakage lately - is it possible to have mastitis this early on? My right breast (the more painful one) does seem a bit hotter then the left. I was trying to massage them to relieve some pressure and the right one seems to be leaking alot when I do that.

Is there anything I can do to help this? Would you use a cold compress or a warm one?


I worry if my breasts continue to be this sore after the baby is born I won't be able to stand to breastfeed.
I can't even stand for my husband to touch them at times, is this normal?

Do you have a fever? Not sure if you can get mastitus if your milk is not in yet?
Mine have been sore off and on. When I take my bra off at night they feel like 100 pound rocks hanging.
Mine get all itchy and full feeling like when I was breastfeeding.
I think its just all normal and your milk ducts getting ready... but if you are really bothered by it maybe talk to you DR/MW? Most OB's know nothing about this though and give bad breastfeeding advice.

No fever but the breast felt like it had a fever. Massaging it - or I guess it would be self-expressing - caused alot of fluid (I don't know if this is premlk or something else?) to come out - it was clear to slightly white-ish/yellow-ish in color and had no smell.

I am wondering if this is just a blocked duct? I am dumbfounded as to why I am producing this and have yet to give birth or breastfeed. I also have alot of problems with itchy breasts and extremely sore nipples - even with putting on the nursing creme to help soothe sore nipples.

I did find relief in expressing the fluid out - my breast were previously very swollen and almost hard - they are much softer now.

Sounds like you are already producing a good amount of colostrum. Might not be a bad thing but annoying this early.
Maybe bring it up to your DR next

I would call your doctor. I never had anything like that happen to me, so I have no advice.

I go in for an appointment tomorrow and will bring it up with him. I am afraid I will get the usual 'It's normal when you are pregnant' mantra, because any problem I brought up he has said is normal!
