Question Clear fluid from nipples at 30 weeks?

This is my first pregnancy, and I'm 30 weeks along. I'll be honest - I am fascinated with the way my nipples have changed, especially that I can SEE the little "holes" where the milk will eventually come from. The other day, I was inspecting them, and a tiny bit of clear fluid came out! It didn't have any color or odor or flavor (yes, I checked!), and was thicker than water. Anybody else start producing liquid this early?? And any ideas on what the heck it IS??

(I am going to ask my OB at my next appointment about it - I just thought I'd ask you ladies as well.)

It sounds like colostrom. I started leaking mine around 25 weeks. I can't say I ever tasted mine though!

Re: Clear fluid from nipples at 30 weeks?

I started leaking colostrum around 25 wks with ds and noticeable leaking at 29 wks with this one. If I walk around without a bra on I suddenly feel wet and look down at my shirt. Sure enough, I have wet spots where my nipples are about the size of a dime or nickle. When it dries on your shirt it's hard to because colostrum is a sticky substance and thick!
Perfectly normal. It just means your body is definitely getting ready for when the baby comes! Just remember to keep your nipples clean so there isn't any clogging issues. I sometimes have to literally pick dried chunks of the stuff off! Sorry if tmi!

Don't worry, it's completely normal to start leaking at any point during your pregnancy. I started leaking colstrum (the thick clear liquid you're referring to) at about 20-22 weeks. It's facinating what are bodies have the ability to do...

Sevans,
You're so right about our bodies being facinating. I am breastfeeding now and I sometimes think about how cool it is that we produce milk to feed our babies. It's just cool and weird at the same time!

I started leaking very early. I was only about 16 weeks when I started leaking with both of my children.
