I'm 9 weeks pregnant and and this is my 3rd child I'm finding my breast are hard and if I squeeze a little clear stuff comes out, is this normal? My second question I would like to know is that my belly is getting big fast and this didn't happen with my first or 2nd child. Is this normal?
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Having breast discharge or lactation/colostrum discharge during pregnancy is normal. If the abdominal girth is fast, then chances of molar pregnancy, or multiple pregnancy, presence of fibroids in uterus etc., should be ruled out. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for thorough evaluation and ultrasound scan, serial HCG level estimation to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms. Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
