You can go to an LC, but it's really more comfortable to deal with it yourself!
I just took a hot shower, pumped (barely got anything), had hubs get a clean needle, and I piercedd what looked like a tiny blister in the middle of the white. I didn't immediately get anything, but I went to soak in a hot tub and massage the sure area behind my nipple. I could see some milk coming, and then I noticed a thick white string floating in the water with me. I'm hoping that was it. Then I pumped about an ounce.

I'm going to keep a close eye on it, and maybe repeat the whole thing in a few hours.

Off to consult with Dr. Google...
