lactating?????

We are ttc and i test in 3 days. My breasts started leaking a bit last night. Could this be an early sign of pregnancy? Or is my body just acting weird?

  • i never head of lactating soooo early even if you are preggers. thats odd. maybe you have an infection in your nipples, or maybe they are sensitive, and possiply could be lactating due to almost starting your period. i would just wait and see if you are pregnant or not by taking a test at teh right time.. then go from there and see whats up with that. or perhaps, ask a doctor.

  • It can be a sign of pregnancy. A lot of women, especially those who have had a child in the past couple of years will produce colostrum very early on in the next pregnancy.

  • Lactation can also be caused by a problem with the pituitary gland or by a cyst on the ovary. If you find out that your are not pregnant then those would be the next things a Dr will check for. I have had both issues over the years and the issue with the pituitary gland can keep you from getting pregnant so you definately want to get it checked out.
    Hope this helps.
