  • I am 30 wks and I have drops that I have been getting for several weeks now. It isn't anything major for me, but I did go and buy some of the pads in case it gets heavier.

  • i called my mom the first time i noticed this and freaked out! She just laughed and told me it is completely normal! It doesnt mean the baby is coming early. The fluid is actually called colostrum and its what your baby feeds on (if you choose to breast feed) before your milk comes in. its full of vitamins and nutrients and wonderful things for your baby. if it gets worse, i would buy some pad that go in your bra. they are virtually invisible and keep you dry.

  • Just colostrom. Your breasts are getting ready for baby.

  • Istarted lactating when I was 5 months pregnant it freaked me out but I was grateful that my milk was coming in. My daughter was 4 days late but by that time I had plenty of milk to give her.
