I assume now I'm posting this in the correct area.
Last night, as I was urinating (for the sixth time in an hour) I looked at one of my breasts as I had a VERY sharp pain in the nipple, and my nipple was secreting a clear liquid. As I "pinched" my other nipple clear liquid came out of that nipple too. Both nipples only secreted about a drop.
I'm 14 (probaly 15 weeks) pregnant and I understand lactating can start at all times. But is this a sign of lactating, and is it normal to start this soon in the pregnancy?
Seeing the milk was one of the first times I really felt like I was meant to have this baby. My parents were pressuring me to give him up, but I had all this milk and knew it was for MY baby. Of course, it wasn't just that, but it was very special when I first saw the milk.
There shouldn't be too much, as it is only colostrum now. I wouldn't recommend pumping or anything though, as it could cause an early onset of labor. If you are in pain, I'd recommend a hot shower and massaging your breasts.
