  • Breast leaking can happen at ANY time... has nothing to do with readiness to deliver. We've seen moms leak at 20 weeks... and never at all.

    Are you having actual contractions or just Braxton Hicks?

    Call your doc anyway, but the breast leaking is 100% normal.

  • Its pretty normal to leak around that time and it may be time for him to come but contractions cause leaking. Take a deeep breath and call your dr. and explain what is happening also start timing your contractions to tell him. Congrats and good luck sweetie.

  • I don't know about the fluid, but if you're going into early labor, you dont want to mess with that. Call your OB.
