I recently started a protocol to try to induce lactation in anticipation of adopting a baby to be born in early March. With my history of infertility issues and the short timeframe, my doctor didn't sound too optimistic that I would have much success (although still saying it is good to try). I took estrogen for 4 days and started pumping yesterday. My understanding was that it could take 1-2 weeks for anything to happen. But, on only the second time I pumped, a few drops of brownish liquid started coming out of one breast. It has been coming out each time. This evening a tiny bit came out of the other breast as well.
Any idea what this is? It certainly doesn't seem like milk. I've never had any type of discharge before, so I don't know what that looks like.
