Milk...already???

I am a FTM, 18wks6days with twins and just had something very unexpected happen. My breasts have been sore, so I was just rubbing them some when a clearish liquid began coming out of both breasts. I had no idea milk or colostrum would could be expressed so soon. I'm reading mixed info online about when it is supposed to come in. Any one have any experience?

Re: Milk...already???

  • I started producing colostrum at 24 weeks with my DS but I haven't yet with this one! It's just your body preparing for your babies!

  • With my last pregnancy, I started leaking a clear, slightly yellowish fluid around 20 weeks or so.  It was just enough to stain my bras, so I resorted to cloth breast pads for the rest of the pregnancy.  My actual colostrum didn't start until I was in labor.

  • I just started leaking a bit of clear fluid the past couple of days. I noticed a spot on my bra tonight when I took it off. Guess I'll have to dig out my leftover pads. I don't remember when it happened with DD, I think it was much later on.

  • I started at 17w. I'm FTM with twins as well. OB says it's a good thing! Not to worry, once it started it hasn't stopped. I may have a day or two that I don't notice it but it's there if you squeeze 'em.

  • I didn't leak anything at all during my pregnancy with Ds. This time, I started leaking a couple of weeks ago. It's very minimal and just clear right now.

    I wouldn't worry about it , just your body getting ready.

  • I get this yellowish stuff on my breasts... My last pregnancy I would have some stains on my bra around 20 something weeks! So its totally possibly anytime during pregnancy, I'm sure!

  • I started leaking at 15w. But from what I've read that just means ill def be able to breast feed and have a good supply!
  • Just discovered this myself a few minutes ago. I noticed when I was getting dressed for bed that they felt a little damp, so I squeezed, and out came this clear liquid. As a FTM I have to say this is very cool lol

    As another FTM, I have to disagree. Stick out tongue

    No, lol, huge WTF? moment earlier today when this started. Figuring this was probably going to get 'worse' (not that it's bad, per se, but you know), I went right out and got some reusable nursing pads. 

    While checking out at the maternity store, I signed up for a rewards something or other program that wanted to know when I was due. I told the cashier May and she sort of looks down at the box, confused, and asks, "And you're already buying nursing pads?" She said it very innocently and not snide at all, I swear, haha. 

    But as soon as we left, I turned to DH and said, "Yeah, you know you're doing it wrong when even the woman in the maternity store is confused at what you're buying."

     

    Also- has anyone else had weird, sort of shooting pains in their breasts? Started for me in one last night, had it a couple times today in both, I'm wondering if it's related to the leaking?
