Too embarrassed to call my doctor or the advise nurse... adult content

So all yesterday my breast felt extremely sore and heavy as if they were completely full. I had the same pain after my daughter was born 6 years ago and then last night I noticed my nipples were leaking. I feel it is gross and nasty at this point but is it normal to be leaking? I'm a couple days shy from 18 weeks along and I don't think this is normal.

  • Totally normal. Happened to me early on too with my very first pregnancy. Caught me off guard too.

  • Normal. Don't know what would be gross or nasty about it. Unless it smelled bad and looked like pus or something.

  • I didn't leak at all with my first pregnancy, but I started leaking pretty early with my second. It's normal.

  • It is just fine. Buy some breast pads and wear them in your bra to keep from leaking on your clothes.

  • Is it smelly, a funky color? If not it is a normal part of being pregnant. If it is call your doctor cause you are having some issues. Also, the embarrassment thing, get over it now, because things get much worse.
