Clear brownish nipple discharge alongside regular colostrum: what is this?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So... 39 weeks pregnant, leaking a little bit of colostrum, able to express a bit of it quite easily, but while doing so, noticed a weird thing. Most of what comes out is your lovely classic cloudy yellowish colostrum. But there's this one pore on my left nipple that always exudes a clear brownish liquid instead.

 

Anyone familiar with this phenomenon?  If so, what is it?

Any cause for concern?

Colostrum.  It can range from yellow/orange/brown and clear to pale and cloudy.

Thanks!  Now that my milk has come in, that pore is exactly the same as the rest : )
