          • I actually have had greenish/white discharge from my breasts since the age of 17. Freaked out my mom and my doctors, and resulted in ultrasounds and mammograms that found...nothing. I even got a second opinion when I went off to college. Also turned up a big zilch and a diagnosis of "idiopathic".

            Every time I go to a new doc, they, too, freak out about the discharge and usually want to test my prolactin levels. Which always come up normal.

            I've been wondering how all this is going to affect matters when I start breastfeeding. It hasn't stopped since I got pregnant, though there is less of it (which is funny, cuz there is waaaay more boobage on me now than there was four months ago). This is one of those things that primal did not magically fix in me. Twenty years on, still discharging unexplained, dark green fluids from my boobs. The body is a weird playground.

            SB, this is not me saying don't go to a doctor. I think breast discharge generally should be looked at by someone with more degrees than me.

            But also, to the other ladies, embarrassing as it is -- sometimes it does just happen.

            • SB -- how long has it been since you've had your "yearly" visit with a gyn? And I don't mean to be pushy - but belly buttons shouldn't crust either........... maybe you have a body fungus? They do happen.......... and can be nasty. My grandmother had it on her ears and they are alwasy white a crusty looking. Nothing a little anti-fungal ointment can't clear up.

              Listen to your gal pals here............ go to the doc.

              Onalark............... big congrats on the prego! There will be a little Onalark-ette or Onalark-dude joining us soon!

              Just for information sake............. after I breastfed my son - who is now 26 so it was 25 1/2 years ago -- I continued to lactate for many years afterwards! If I held a baby.......... boom........ I could feel the milk drop and my bra would get wet --- once I dreamed I was breastfeeding and when I woke up (lying on my stomach) the sheets had big wet spots from the discharge (milk?). And for nearly 20 years I would "dribble" under the right circumstances. I never mentioned it to the doc - but now, after working for an endocrinologist, I realize that its just not normal. I used to joke that I could easily be a "wet nurse" if I needed a new vocation. I probably should have had my prolactin levels checked. But - about the time menopause was beginning it all stopped. Since my hormones are all flatline now - I guess theres nothing to trigger the leakage.

              • I have always had crusty stuff in my belly button, even as a kid. I really think this is all just sweat and dead skin build-up. I'm not one to scrub when I wash up. My skin is too dry to do a lot of stuff to it and I've never been one to use girly products on myself.

                • okay --- try Olay body wash extra moisturizing - I think it has shea butter in it. Sorta yellow container. I used to have super dry skin - to the point where I would scratch until I bled! I use this stuff - and don't even need to put on a lotion after I shower - and no more itching.

                  try --- and wash that belly button girl!

                  • Thank you Thank you for this post! I'm a newbie lurker now as well, only been at this for a little over 3 weeks, and the pounds are not magic melting off me either. I'm just bouncing around the same 3 lb range. I suppose that's good as I'm not gaining weight. I'm trying to figure out if this is just the weight I'm supposed to be or what. I've basically been healthy through life and pretty much thin. But after a personal tragedy I gained what seemed like a lot of weight for me, I'm 5'7" and went from 135 to 156. Got down to 140 on WW but want to be at 130. I stumbled onto this WOE and the website through a coworker and it all just made so much sense! Anyway, sorry this is kind of scattershot but it's nice to be reminded that everybody's journey is a different but we still need to just keep finding what works.
                    Breathe. Move forward.

                        Thank you. And she's an -ette. We got to find out at week 14 because I'm old enough to warrant fancy new genetic testing, which means they knew the gender the moment they started squinting at her DNA.

                            Awesome! You must be so excited! but - seriously dear - by your picture I would guess you to be 25 at best! So not sure what "old enough to warrant........... " means.

                              Ha ha. Much appreciated, but I'm on the slippery side of 30.

                              Good genes. Really good genes. And butter.

                              Uh, anyway. When you're past 35, doctors start to get skittish about pregnancy. I had at least two friends go into caution mode about how hard it would be to get pregnant "at your age", and that I would be classified as "high risk", and a birth center birth would NOT be an option. Aside from the miscarriage in July (which can happen to any prospective mother, regardless of age), I've had a fairly good pregnancy, and while we won't know if we're on track for a birth center birth for many weeks yet, there's nothing stopping me so far.

                              Also, number of times we've "tried" since April: three. Number of times I've gotten pregnant: two. Hmm. Yep. I'm gonna say it again: really good genes and butter.

                              • Very interesting to read lately! Tomi, I agree that isn't normal. I dried up in about 3 weeks! Although at the end it was a slow weaning process where DS went from once a day to once every couple days and then just stopped. Nice to have my body back (when he's not climbing all over me).
