DD weaned at 22 months... which was... in August. It was fairly uneventful. By that time she was more or less only nursing to sleep at night. Nothing too exciting. I had a breast exam at my yearly checkup about a month and half ago, again uneventful. About a week ago I started having a dull-ish pain in my left breast, mostly if I was being active and my boobs were bouncing, or in the morning after waking up (no bra to bed, big boobs... depending on my position, my boobs can hang, if you will, at night.). I assumed It is some pulled ligament or something, but it was bugging me tonight and I was squishing/squeezing/generally manhandling my boob to make sure there isn't a lump or something and just for curiosity's sake wanted to see how much milk I could express after a few months. I expected to see a few drops of regular old milk, but instead out comes thick yellowish yuck. It's definitely thicker than normal BM, more like colostrum, but definitely not colostrum, and not quite as sticky.
At first I was really freaked out and thought for sure I must have a mild case of mastitis or something, so I squished/squeezed around the other breast and came up with the same stuff.
I totally don't recall this after DS weaned a few years ago, but I also wasn't ever trying to express anything months after he was done.
Is it normal? Is it just super thick old milk? Do I worry? Normal? Call doctor? My boobs don't feel any different to me. The pain is intermittant and fleeting... I don't want to have really worry, but if I should, I guess I will...
