Crusty nipples (sorry, TMI alert!)

Woke up this morning with nipples that were, well, crusty! Like when you get PVA glue on your skin and it peels off - does this mean I'm leaking colostrum...?? Am 20 weeks.

Also, can those Montgonery things be brown? I have lots of those little bumps but thought they were supposed to be white...!

I had this one day last week (26 weeks) after I work up from making love (a rare event), it hasn't happened before or since, and neither have I made love since. It washed off so i'm pretty sure it was colostrum.

What are Montgonery things? I could just google I suppose!

Yep sounds like colostrum to me. Best to get the breastpads in as soon as you can because it can get messy! My Montgomery tubicles are brown, never really though about it tbh.
