okay, that was really scary. I have to EP for my dd.
the last time I was pumping I noticed my left nipple was not moving as easily within the flange as it usually does, didn't think much of it, figured it was a problem with one of the pump parts....never occurred to me that my nipple really was a different size/shape....
now, I was pumping for about 10 minutes, I didn't look down the whole time because I was watching TV, looked down and to my horror saw a half ounce of blood and a half ounce of milk- only milk is coming out now. picked up the bottle- HUGE blood clot. we're talking an alien being. probably 3 inches long. I do not care to picture how that came out of my nipple. I am just glad I was distracted. it didn't hurt, I've had no pain in that breast- though I have had mastitis 3 or 4 times in that breast over the past 6 months, but I've had it a couple times in the other breast too so I don't think that's related. last week I had an incredibly strange blister type thing on that nipple that eventually oozed a thick mix of blood and mucus which I'm now wondering was that blood clot trying to get out!
ick ick ick!!!!! what's wrong with me? why was there a clot in my boob?
