Red face Nipple Discharge Yuck!

Today I looked at my nipple and white, crusty stuff was around it. I freaked and called my dr and she said it was normal. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm only 19 weeks.

That is completely normal. You are one of the women who leak colostrum (sorry, can't spell). It is the milk that the baby gets the first couple of days after he/she is born. It is completely normal to leak it though.

I am at the beginning of my 18th week and only my left breast has some leakage. Not very much at all, but it surprised me to have it this early!

I'm only 19 1/2 weeks and it's my right breast only. I thought it was a bit early too. Oh well, it was just a bit and I'm the only one who saw. It's not like my shirt was wet or anything!

I have been leeking since the 14th week or so. Initially it was only my left breast, now it is both. I have read that it is normal and nothing to worry about, unless it is accompanied by bleeding as well.

Hi Chrissy,

Yes, I noticed the exact same thing just yesterday - actually dh did. He said, "Hey babe, are you leaking already?" It really surprised me too! Glad to know it's normal. Yeah - mine wasn't much either, kind of dried. Weird huh?
