Okay so this is my first full term pregnancy. I am 31 weeks today. Well I recently noticed my b**bs have started leaking. I do know that around the third trimester some women start to leak colostrum before they have their baby and that it is kind of yellow/white. Well the liquid i am leaking is clear and only happends after i take a shower usually. I am usually all dried off and everything so I know it is not water just dripping down and freaking me out something def comes out my b**bs. Any ladies have any idea on what it is?

Yellow/white is milk. Colostrum is clear. I had clear and I am still breastfeeding my son after a year, you're okay. No worries, lady :) It used to amuse me while pregnant :D

It's all random. I get crystallized colostrum every morn on my nips that's clear. If I squeeze it a tiny bit it starts clear and then has a yellowish tint to it. All is normal.

I had an incident during my pregnancy where I literally sprang a leak out the side of my right breast. It was clear fluid and I called my OB hysterical. He sent me to a breast surgeon who told me that I had a milk fissure and I was leaking colostrum. I was dumbstruck. I didnt realize colostrum was clear and so watery. lol



That was a crazy experience. Nothing like filling a Kotex Overnight menstrual pad in less than a handful of hours. It was a major leak. :shock:

Yeah, it still hasnt healed up all the way. I might need surgery to close up the fissure or else I might burst again next pregnancy. So strange...
