You would think I should know this by now<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy"><br><br>
Ds weaned himself at 2 1/2 , (and still asks but doesn't want to take the time to actually nurse, and gets mad because there isn't any milk!lol) and he is nearly 3 now. I had an early miscarriage at about 3 weeks or so recently, it just didn't stick. So, we are still trying. Would that cause my breasts to have colostrum?<br>
Would having recently weaned cause it also?<br>
My breasts are just really tender, and it doesn't seem like an infected breast. i thought so at first, but there would be A LOT of infected milk coming out if it were. And I am still sore. Is this mastitis or colostrum? Could this be a sign of pregnancy? Or just leftovers?

Hi, Leila! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
I hope it's a sign of pregnancy for you!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Is it the yellow-gold colored fluid, or does it look like milk? I'm 20 weeks or so and just was able to express a tiny drop of colostrum (I figured it was there because my DS had started nursing again as though there was something!). Definitely not milk - transparent and golden. But I'm not leaking yet, either. I know I didn't leak colostrum until about 6 months along with earlier pregnancies. BUT, I wouldn't doubt that our bodies are capable of it! Everyone is so different!<br><br>
Do you know how far along you might be if you are pg? Is there any chance that you could be further along? I know I've heard of m/c of one twin and the other growing healthily. Just some random thoughts!<br><br>
Hope it's great news for you! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Hi!thanks<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
It is semi- transparent and golden. Definitely very golden colored. I really doubt I am pregnant(false test) unless it is a very early on, just conceived pregnancy<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I had a pretty heavy period a week and a half ago, and the month before that(actually more around like 3 weeks before) I had what started as implantation bleeding for 2 days, then clots.<br><br>
So I am in pain tonight with it.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/crap.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crap"> Now I don't know what to think!lol I guess I'll never know. Hopefully it's just my body trying to deal, and I am preggered again<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

I know you can definitely leak colostrum and not be pregnant. I learned the "OMG WHAT THE HECK IS THIS I CAN'T BE PREGNANT!" way <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> . Any change in hormones can cause this to happen, and it sounds like your cycle is in flux right now, and not back to "normal".
