  • Could be weeks. It is not a sign of labor. I hear they can grow back too?

  • Weeks. It's not necessarily a sign of labor by itself.

  • For a first time mom, it can be up to 5 weeks and as little as a few days. After the first baby, usually right away. Go to and download your free Healthy Birth Booklet-6 steps to a safer birth
