  • been there!! it sucks i know. But how far along are you? I was like that for about 2 weeks then i started leeking everywhere. My doctor told me that that is just how my body was getting ready to produce milk for the baby and start lactating(sp?) So its normal...

  • I don't know if it's possible to get a yeast infection prior to giving birth, but you may want to check with your doctor. If your nipples are extra shiny, that's sometimes an indication of a breast yeast infection.
