    Default Clear leakage

    I just noticed today that I've got some clear leakage from my breasts...it doesn't just leak out though, it only comes if I squeeze a bit, if that makes sense. Would this be the beginnings of colostrum? I just thought it was a bit strange because it's a clear fluid, almost like water except not quite as watery, but it's not thick or sticky and doesn't smell like anything. Just wondered if I should be freaking out yet or not...lol. I have a midwives appointment next Thursday so can ask them then, but thought I would see if anyone else has any ideas first...Also today I think I've had a bit more vaginal discharge than normal, but I don't think it's enough to be amniotic fluid? Maybe I've just been drinking too much water and my body is trying to get rid of all the excess

    Yes it`s colostrum, I`ve been getting colostrum for about 2 weeks now, like you only if I squeeze, I`m sure before I know it I`ll be leaking and having to wear pads.

    Thanks girls! Can put my mind at rest, I feel much more relieved now! I thought maybe it was, but wasn't 100% sure because it's clear...

    I suppose I'd better go buy some breast pads before it does start actually leaking!

    Thankyou

    I would cause i had a few nights where i woke up covered in this sticky stuff! Mine is just started to leak clear without sqeezing but only when excited and touched can be non-sexually too (dd was checking them out she is fasinated with mum's big dark nipples atm and then looks at her pale tiny ones). If i squeeze i'll start getting some milky discharge yellow to pale white after the clear stuff.
