Clear liquid from nipples? Krazekara4182 TTC since Feb 2013; 1 child; California 87 posts

Ok, so I am 23 weeks and last night me and SO were having a little fun. After we were finished he told me that something came out of my b**b. I got freaked out and started squeezing my nipples. A teeny tiny amount of clear liquid was coming out of both. Anyone ever had this? Do you know what it is?

its called colostrum, the baby drink its before your milk comes in and its really good for them and try not to make it come out because stimulation of the nipples and actually make u contract

I know what colostrum is, but I thought it was a yellow-green liquid. I was asking for real life advice, not your smart ass comments. And I do read, alot. Thank you Mel. Yeah, I know that nipple stimulation can make you contract, and we sure don't want that this early! Thank you.

I'm only 20 weeks and I didn't know it would happen this early! Your not alone and to aries417jp not everyone becomes a walking dictionary as soon as they become pregnant! First time mom's are notorious for asking things that might sound stupid to some of the more experienced mom's....Aslo not every book has all the answers! My bf was doing a bit of touching as welll a few nights ago and the same thing happened to me!

Yea I just asked this same question last week. It's normal... but I did not know stimulation of the nipples can bring on contractions... ok I guess that means no more being nosey to see if there's more stuff coming out the nipples! :shock:



PS - I wasn't aware people can be so bitchy this early in the morning. :roll:

Thank you ladies for your replies. I looked it up in my book, and like I said, the book says it's supposed to be yellow, so I was wondering what it was. I didn't pay attention to them all day and then at like 5 oclock I felt a tingling, pulled out my b**b and sure enough, clear stuff coming out... Oh my. Now I am self concious about getting big wet spots on my shirt..... The joys of pregnancy! LOL....

How much of that stuff comes out, and for how long? This just happened to me last night for the first time that I noticed. And I'm almost 27 weeks. Is there anyway to keep it from just coming out?

Same thing happen to me but it happen around 17 weeks. I was told that when it happens earlyer it will make it alot easyer to bf cause your b**bs are not as tender.

Mine started really early too! If you squeeze long enough the yellow stuff they are talking about will come out also :)
