    Default Not sure where to put this...pregnant with 3rd

    I am pregnant with my 3rd child and it has been 4years since I've nursed. I have always had this "brownish waxy" substance on my nipples since I stopped nursing. Now that I am pregnant, I am concerned that maybe I need to remove this substance before the baby arrives. Has anyone one else had this experience?

    It's normal. The stuff you described is called called keratin plugs. It's a substance your body creates (seals off the ducts) and it will come off on it's own. No worries!
