It is definitely not a good idea. Any form of nipple stimulation, squeezing, sucking or pumping, can release Oxytocin which can cause contractions. At 25 weeks, this is definitely not something you want to happen.
I'd don't think it's unsafe, but it's not recommended. There is no reason that you should need to do this. Your milk will come in on it's own after the baby is born. If it is getting squeezed out on accident. then it is probably OK. Just be a bit more careful, it's not at all necessary to do.
I am also 25 weeks pregnant. My doctor told me not to squeeze colostrum from my nipples or even stimulate them very much, doing so can release oxitotion (I don't know the correct spelling) which can cause contractions, and lead to premature labor. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy!
I am 30 weeks pregnant and I was wondering the same thing cuz mine only leak if I squeeze them but my husband says that when he sucks on them he doesn't notice anything coming out so I was wondering if that's normal or not. Also if it's not ok to squeeze, suck, or pump then how come people can breast feed while pregnant and have no early contractions??
In the third trimester, some pregnant women begin to leak colostrum from their breasts. Colostrum is the first milk that your breasts produce for the baby. It is a thick, yellowish fluid containing antibodies that protect newborns from infection.
Then it isn't colostrum. This only appears after giving birth. You should probably go see your doctor and find out what you are expressing from your breasts and why. Hope this helps!
Once your breasts fill with milk, the nipple can be squeezed to expell the liquid. Also while pregnant the breasts can leak something called colostrum which is what the baby eats when it is first born.
Leaking small amounts of colostrum is normal, but leaking blood from you breasts (unless they are cracked, dry and irritated, may not be normal. Ask your OB.

If there is any chance that you are pregnant, take a test. You may have an infection. Speak to your doctor about it.
Although most women experience some colostrum earlier in their pregnancy, it is also normal to get colostrum later. It just depends on your body. I would not worry unless you have no milk after baby is born. You may even have colostrum now, but it just needs to be expressed. Sometimes, it is hard for the colostrum to let down.
Its not colostrum coming from your breasts. Colostrum comes out after delivery and first time of breast feeding. Take a pregnancy test for $8.00 and stop wondering.
I had my last period 1 1/2 months ago had a blood test done 2 weeks ago but my breasts are leaking colostrum. Am i pregnant? I stopped breastfeeding my second child October 2006, might it be due to this that the milk is just still working itself out
as your breasts start preparing to nurse as soon as you are pregnant you may well secrete a little colostrum at 16 weeks, especially if you have had a baby before.
Yes. However your breasts are leaking Colostrum or pre-milk and not breastmilk. Breastmilk doesn't arrive until a day or two after the baby is born.
No. One of the most common reasons that breasts leak is because the woman just had a baby. If the breasts are not expressed regularly while a woman is lactating, they will get sore and they will leak. If the breasts leak at any other time, it could be a medical symptom.
Age has nothing to do with when a female produces breast milk, and the only time a female has milk in her breasts is after giving birth. The first breast secretion after delivering is not milk, but a substance called "Colostrum", which is thought to have more of the vital nutrients and immune boosters than the breast milk itself has. The breasts will produce the colostrum for about a day, then they will begin producing milk. They will continue to produce milk for as long as the mother nurses, but when she stops nursing, the breasts stop producing milk.
Some women at the mere end of their pregnancy start to leak colostrum. This is just a sign that their breasts are ready for milk production. It's completely normal to be experiencing this.
It can indicate that your breasts are filling up with colostrum the first milk that comes in after you have your baby!!! If you are worried about anything ask your doctor or midwife.
In the second half of pregnancy (and you are almost there, it's not like it hits on day 1 of the second trimester) the breasts may leak a thick white or yellow fluid. Sometimes the fluid is seen if the breasts are pushed or massaged. This is known as colostrum. Colostrum is different in composition than milk and will be important in nurturing the baby in the first days of life before the milk "comes in."
ya do it regularly
Just excercise regularly.
No. Just because your breasts are sore doesn't mean that you are pregnant. When you get your period, your breasts tend to get sore too. Sore breasts aren't the only sign of pregnancy.
Most likely yes. See your doctor for a blood test. ---answer--- What do you mean by " colostrum" . Any time you press your nipples when NOT PREGNANT liquid will come out your breast. Many women claim that it is indeed true. Even on faqfarm website I have read so many replies about "colostrum". You get colostrum when your baby is born and it is the first 4-5 days milk that is called colostrum, before "real" breast milk comes in. I am not saying that you are not pregnant but it would be too early to have breast leak. It starts only later in pregnancy.... Frequent urination starts after 6-8 weeks ,however everyone is different. The best thing to do is to do a Home pregnancy test when you have been late on your period,at least a day,you may do it earlier but it can be a waste of money as you need to give time to HCG level to rise.
I am pregnant and it seems only the outsides of my breasts are sore but my nipples are EXTREMELY sinsitive
Colostrum is the first "milk" a baby gets from his mothers breasts. This is a thicker substance and after babies birth that is all he needs for the first couple days. After that, mother's milk comes in. Colostrum is the first "milk" a baby gets from his mothers breasts.
