Sorry, I didn't know where else to post this. I hope it's ok just tucked in here.
My kids are 8 and 10. I stopped breastfeeding when my youngest was 6 months. I came out as gay 8 years ago and haven't had sex with a man for longer than that.
For the last few days my breast have been getting bigger and heavier - they actually feel like breastfeeding breasts. I'm feeling the let-down sensation and had a wet circle stain around one side when I woke the other morning. I took myself off to the doctor, he was a little concerned, apparently this is quite uncommon. He has done a few blood tests - including a pregnancy test for his peace of mind - to get the ball rolling in order to find out what's going on.
Today I am feeling little flutters in my belly. Like when your baby is about 4-5 months and you get the first little butterfly flutters. THIS is really freaking me out.
I cannot be pregnant! No chance, no how. What the hell is going on??? Has anyone had anything like this happen before? I am not feeling clucky to have a baby, I am not around any babies... This is so strange - I hope I'm not alone.

Bloating can cause 'flutters', a hormone imbalance can cause the breast issues, and also bloating etc
I hope they sort it out for you

Get your doc to test for an infection in you milk ducts/glands.
My mum experienced something similar - thought she was producing milk, but it was a liquidy symptom of an infection.
Hormones are incredible things, and your body may be going through certain changes.
Hope it all gets sorted - but hey, if you do end up with a miracle baby - make sure you come back and fill us all in

Well, that IS odd
I get those flutters every month, actually... So that could be pretty common, maybe you just didn't notice it before...? I never noticed until I started keeping a diary for TTC.
As far as the boobs go... Hope that's all cleared up soon... Must be on your mind a lot... I hope it's nothing...
All the best...

FiveInTheBed, you just triggered a thought. Argh! I wonder if I'm going through 'the change'. It's a bit early to be that though, I think. It really should wait until I've finished my degree, I need my brain for study.
Oh god, if there IS a baby in there you'll be hearing it splattered all over the news. Either that or they'll have to drag me off to the padded room of a psych ward. If the latter is not the case I'll be sure to share the news!
