Very very confused .. can it be colostrum? Please help.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

My daughter is 35 months old and until 1 month back (I am 17 weeks pregnant) she was nursing once in the night to sleep. I have suspected that I had no milk since 3-4 months before pregnancy so about  months of 4-5 months of dry-suckling and last month no nursing (it was painful and I have been wanting to wean her anyway. )

 

Last night (we co-sleep) in the middle of the night I woke up to a little patch of wetness on the bedsheet (she is still not night-trained for potty)...I started feeling her pant and shirt and sure enough they were wet ..but I also realized that the area near both by breasts was wet too (shirt I mean).

 

I freaked out  - I couldn't be leaking colostrum at 17+ weeks can I?

 

The other possibility is that she had her bum nestled against my chest when she peed and it somehow overflowed through the diaper (this has happened a few times before especially if her diaper gets bunched up and overflows) and wet my shirt...

 

..but I cannot shake the feeling away...

 

Any mamas who nursed through pregnancy- any experiences?

 

If mamas had been nursing through pregnancy and their milk dried up during pregnancy - when was the earliest it started back up again?

 

Please help!

I just always had something. even my first pregnancy I started leaking colostrum at 10 weeks. with my second when I was still nursing my first I was never completely dry, but by 20 weeks had switched to just colostrum.
