Boobs are owwwww
i leaked from somewhere in my 2nd trimester on in my first pregnancy. REALLY terribly in 3rd trimester. i was in grad school and taking exams at the end of pregnancy and felt faint and flushed during one Aramaic exam and when to the bathroom and my outside SWEATER was soaked w/ drip lines down the front. SO TERRIBLY EMBARRASSING!!! i could shoot colostrum at my husband from across the house at 7 months.... not sure when it all started, but it was weird.
NOW i nurse through pregnancy and it's not a big deal. i have never leaked again like that. but i know that such exuberant colostrum production is the exception, not the rule!!!! i also rarely leaked once my milk came in??? first month or so but not after that and never again. i rarely leak on a letdown unless i'm engorged.
I had intense stabbing feelings in one nipple yesterday, it hurt! And I notice the tiniest drops of milk when I gently squeeze to try and stop my itching now, since about 10 weeks. Pretty sure I didn't have milk until the 3rd trimester last time.
I just pictured a fun game in my head. Me thinking it's hilarious and chasing DH around the house as he screams and tries to shield himself, pregnant belly prominent.
My boobs are KILLING me...and my nipples are at attention 24/7. This is my first so maybe this is normal? For me it is one of the worst "side effects" because I've never had boob pain...ever. And I've need needed to worry about my headlights being on =) Super itchy too...but maybe that is just winter skin? Been using additional coconut oil to help that out a bit.
