‘Boobie Leaks’ Awkward!!

I can see few raised eyebrows just by the title of the post but hey ho this is a mommy’s diary all access granted and seeing as this is the National Breast Cancer awareness month what better to write about than ‘boobies’.

Okay. So now that we have that cleared up, can I please Just ask how much truth is too much information? Or should truth even be considered as too much information? I ask this because whilst others would find what I am about to share helpful, insightful, humorous or educational, others will cringe and think or say out loud this is damn right outrageous, too personal and wrong. Still yet I sit here amused and chuckling at the thought of the different reactions this post may get.

Anyway so this will be a really short post about my first ‘Boobie Leakage’ LoL. Yes the thought of it makes me giggle. I was sat at home after a shower buttering my body and out of nowhere I felt a squirt of what I at that point thought was water, but rolled my eyes at myself when reality struck and my brain was back in motion thinking just where would water be coming from especially a squirt of that nature; and ding the light bulb in my head went on and I quickly realised that it was my breast leaking.

Yes, my breast was leaking and blimey was I surprised. Obviously as a mommy to be I have done my research on many topics and aside that I thoroughly enjoy reading as it stimulates my mind. But even with all the reading I subject myself to willingly to my surprise I somehow managed to miss the memo of what I now call ‘The Boobie Leak’ and boy oh boy when I tried to stop one breast from leaking off went the other one. 😉 LoL

I really found this experience amusing and immediately rang my sister and shared my experience with her and asked if that was normal? Phew to my surprise yes it was and is normal as she told me. Therefore I thought I would share with other mommy’s who may have missed ‘The Boobie Leak’ Memo like I somehow did, and to also let you know that just in case you do get ‘The Boobie Leak’ every now and again and have not yet given birth that is normal.

#Fact: “In pregnancy, the breasts may start to produce milk weeks or months before you are due to have your baby. It can happen as early as 14 weeks of pregnancy.” (NHS 2013)

Okay funny stories aside and now onto serious business. As many of you may or may not be aware that October is the #National #Breast #Cancer #Awareness #Month and I just wanted to bring your attention to some very important information about breast cancer.

“The statistics

  • Every year nearly *55,000 people are diagnosed with breast Cancer in the UK. That’s the equivalent of 150 people every day or one person every 10 minutes.
  • 1 in 8 women in the UK will develop breast cancer in their lifetime.
  • Nearly 12,000 people die from breast cancer in the UK every year.
  • Breast cancer is the second most common cause of death from cancer in women in the UK, after lung cancer.
  • Of adults aged between 25-49, breast cancer accounts for 45% of all female cancers.
  • There are an estimated 550,000 people living in the UK today who have had a diagnosis of breast cancer.”
