Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

can you plz explain whether any secretion is there or not??

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

There is enormous variability in the way women’s breasts change during pregnancy. Some women have a growth spurt right from the beginning of pregnancy then not much happens till near the end or even in the first few days after the baby is born. Other women experience growth at intervals throughout pregnancy. What almost all women will notice by this time, is a darkening in the pigment in the nipples, areolae (the darker circle on your breasts surrounding the nipples) and around their genitals. Most women experience breast and/or nipple tenderness/tingling early in pregnancy but for some women   breast and/or nipple sensitivity continues throughout pregnancy especially in response to cold weather etc. You may also notice that your breasts leak a little colostrum (the gold coloured, antibody-rich, first breastmilk) if you squash them while sleeping etc...

Jyoti if you are feeling that internal swelling, then please have a re-check up... if the pain is more, ask for mild painkillers..
