Rhonda - February 6

Hi i am 36wks5days pg.This morning my right br___t has been aching very badly i do have colostrum in my br___t,well i squeezed my nipple to see if maybe it would stop the aching and to my surprise i had a bit of blood come out of my nipple.I have never had that ever before and this is my 5th pregnancy.What would cause blood to come out of my nipple?I have checked several more times and have not seen it again,but i am very freaked out by it.Please help me if you can.

Call your doctor. As I understand, it can be quite normal, but you should let him/her know about it.

I called my dr office and a nurse called me back,she said since i have it in both b___st it is normal,she said she has seen it before.She said during pregnancy when your b___st swell that sometimes you can have bleeding from your nipple.She told me not to worry about it.So i am releived to a point.

I'm in my second pregnancy, and I experienced the same thing for a few weeks...it freaked me right out. My dr ran some tests and even took a sample of the discharge, and tested it for any type of papilloma, which he said can sometiems be common during pregnancy. It was nothing, though...he told me that since our bodies produce more blood when we are pregnant sometimes blood just gets in there and escapes thru the b___st......if it still is happening I would ask next time you are at the dr, but otherwise don't stress too much!!!

You might want to contact a lactation consultant to make sure it isn't a problem, especially if you want to b___stfeed. I know that blood in the milk post-partum is a sign of a b___st infection, but I have no idea what it means during pregnancy!
