Maybe an allergic reaction to the nursing pads? Have you tried the washable ones? The weather is heating up so might be like a heat rash.

Call your ob or ask to speak to a midwife at your hospital. They are the ones that have the experience.

Your breasts are getting ready with the rest of your body, and the liquid leaking could very well be colustrum. Check with your health care providers at the next appointment, just to be sure.
If its clear when fresh, and sticky but then dries to white flaky stuff I would venture to assume it IS colustrum. I have the same problems with the itchiness.
While pregnant, if its NOT thrush related, lotions or vaseline helps. Anything to easethe infernal itch! Also, you may indeed be sensitive to the nursing pads. Keep in mind as well that your hormones change your body during pregnancy, so you may also be developing an extra sensitivity to your laundry detergent, bath soaps and personal hygiene products.
After giving birth, speak with the gp about safe itch relief remedies while nursing

Its unlikely but if you're itchy anywhere else and it gets worse it can be a symptom of obstetric cholestasis. Ring your ob on Monday just to be on safe side.
