Great!  Thanks.  Since it's just like that one side, I was less sure what to think.

It makes me happy that everyone is practicing their hand expressing on my account orngbiggrin.gif  It's a good skill to have in a pinch too!!!  (Heh, in a pinch...)


In all seriousness though, I've just felt so "bleh" through this whole pregnancy.  I truly do view nursing as a super power of sorts...  I'm still occasionally nursing my DS too, so this just makes me feel like I'm on the road to functioning.  It's a good feeling!


I will reiterate to any mamas reading this thread, that making colostrum or being able to express colostrum at any point in pregnancy is no indication of whether you'll have colostrum or be a good milker postpartum.  The two are unrelated!!

Never been pregnant before and... whoa! This just happened to me for the first time! Was wondering why my boob felt wet and... oh... surprise!! winky.gif hahaha


Logged onto mothering to see if it had happened to anyone else too and, sure enough! Mine is just clear so far, and not very much. Haven't tried expressing or anything. But wow! Glad to know they work right, I guess! lol
