Ok, is it normal to have colostrum come out of your nipples? Is that a sign of PG? I had it VERy early with my first born, at around 7 weeks, and I don't know WHAT possessed me to squeeze my nips this morning, but I did, and colostrum came out. THIS has NEVER happened before unless I was pregnant! What is going on? Do you think its a sign?

HELP!!!

I do believe that it is normal, and if I remember right, I also think that it is a sign of pregnancy. Good luck!!

Well it can happen for several reasons.

Usually, youre PG, or have an infection.

BUT... women who are NOT pg CAN produce colostrum and milk. I know this b/c a coworker of mine adopted a newborn, and several months before the baby was born, she began pumping, which caused her body to start producing milk. (Initially, colostrum though). When the baby was born, she was present, and immediately breastfed the baby.

This usually only happens with proper, persistent, stimulation though. (Like pumping)

I do think it could be a sign of pregnancy, but if you end up not being prego I would get it checked out just to make sure everything is ok

Causes of nipple discharge:

* History of breastfeeding: Some women produce a milky discharge months and sometimes years after having finished breastfeeding.
* Stimulation: Squeezing or expressing the breast or nipple can produce a nipple discharge.
* Fibrocystic breast changes: Cysts (sacs filled with fluid) and changes in the fibrous tissue of the breast can cause nipple discharge that is often greenish.
* Intraductal papilloma: This is a small benign (not cancer) wart-like growth in the duct lining which may become irritated and bleed, producing a brown or bloody discharge.
* Hormonal changes: A milky discharge that occurs in both breasts in a woman who is not breastfeeding may be due to increased levels of the hormone prolactin.
* Breast cancer: This can very rarely cause a bloody or clear nipple discharge.

Yep, there is a whole "adoptive breastfeeding" community out there lol. La Leche League also offers information on it. Very interesting, although also very controversial

Well I am 30 and had a mammogram 6 months ago, and everything is fine. I dunno, I think because I had this before with my other pregnancies, it may be a good thing? It is VERY early, but I have and my husband has, squeezed that area, and NOTHING has come out since I stopped BF my 2nd daughter 3 years ago!

Do you think something is wrong? Now Im worried that something is wrong.

UGH!

How long ago did you stop BF?
I know women can have some milk for years.
But, it is also a sign of pregnancy.

I am suppose to start next Wed, so I guess I am on CD 21. I have other symptoms, but Im trying not to read to much into it and get my hopes up too high. I tested this morning it was BFN of COURSE, its too early, but Im a psycho POASTICKER!

I only breastfed my second daughter for 2 weeks, and that was 3 years ago, and haven't had ANY thing come out since then.

Is it an EARLY pg sign though? I mean I had it at around 7weeks with my daughters, but not THIS early.

I was told when my boobs started leaking again this week that it will occur during the first few weeks of PG. However, in my case I don't believe it because I just stopped BF two months ago.
Good LUCK
