Pregnant with "milk" already coming out???

[deleted account] ( 6 moms have responded )

Im 29 weeks pregnant with my first baby and for the last few weeks i been getting ALOT of flakiness in my bra and when i look at my nipple i see like 5 white thick dots and if i use my nails i can scratch or pull a little of the white stuff out?? is that milk already?? or some kind of pre-milk?? its really weird and kind of funny, but im thinking am i going to stand producing milk really early. oh ya mind you that my bra size is a 44G.... so maybe is it bcuz i have a bigger boob, or just good genes? let me know if anyone else has had that stuff come out too....

with my 1st pregnancy i started waking up soaking wet! it sucked because i thought u didn't make milk yet, come to find out its colostrum.. and it was the only pregnancy that i ever leaked that early but its no big deal and i would just wear nursing pads to keep ur self from leaking everywhere.

I started leaking at about 20 weeks and I am VERY small chested! I would wake up wet in the mornings. The first time I saw it, I honestly thought I had somehow drooled onto my chest in the middle of the night b/c I had no idea I'd start leaking so early (or at all!)!

i have something like that with my right onw and that one is bigger so maybe thats what mine is but i have no idea if it is the same "stuff" as yours!

I leaked colostrum from 20 weeks, enough to have to wear breast pads all the time or I would have a wet t-shirt. I now have enough milk to feed an army. I BF aaron, pump for my nephew and donate to the local NICU! My health visitor reckons I could solve the worlds hunger problems with my left boob! lol.

I had it too, I totally thought it was only because I had big boobs too because my friends (who have MUCH smaller boobs than me) didn't have any. It turns out my body was just getting ready faster than theirs were!

Yes, it's "pre-milk" called collostrum. It's the first milk your baby will drink when he or she is born and all your baby will need until your full milk comes in. Most women start producing collostrum in the third trimester of pregnacy, though I suppose most don't notice. It is definately a sign that your breasts are getting ready for your new baby. :)
