Since yesterday, I have been having the strangest pain in my breasts. It feels like I have little pins stabbing them on the inside- kind of tingling-like. But I haven't had any leaking or anything- it's just this weird feeling. It's not terribly painful but it is painful enough for me to notice it, kwim? Is anyone else having this? Or are my breasts just weird?

Gosh, I dunno! Maybe your body is gearing up for birth... if you'd already had your baby and your milk had come in I would think possibly plugged ducts or mastitis...

I'm just the one with little dried bits of colostrum on my nips. It's embarrassing that even with 52 months of nursing under my belt I wondered what those little white bits were.

The beginnings of your let-down sensation? I know that's what mine felt like for a while, way back when, and I didn't always have milk with it. Hmmm. Someone will know.
