Nipples Leaking! Is This Normal?


I just noticed that my nipples are leaking a clear fluid. Is it normal for that to happen this early? I'm only 15 weeks and 5 days along! It's freaking me out! I reached down my shirt to scratch my boob because it was itchy and there was all this wetness! I squeezed and more came out. I guess I can be happy that they're working properly, but should it be happening this early? My nipples used to be pierced a long time ago, could that make it happen sooner?

Sorry wendy, got no idea on the leaking . . .

But girls, I see two of you both had nipple piercings, so i hope you don't mind me asking a quick related question! I had one too but took it out just before my bfp. Where the hole used to be, i get kinda white gunky stuff coming out of it when I squeeze. I assume this is just a build up of dirt etc in the piercing hole. But won't this be bad for baby if breastfeeding?? Do either of you have this???

Thanks - and sorry for hijacking your thread

xxxxx

Haha, I took mine out 5 years ago and I still get the white stuff! I think it's a build up of sebum, the natural oil that comes out of your skin. My doctor looked over my boobs after I told him that i wanted to breastfeed and he said that there shouldn't be any problems at all. Some of the fluid that was coming out was coming out of one of the holes, so I'm sure frequent breast feeding will keep them flushed and prevent the build up.
