What does it mean if you start lactating at 26 weeks?

I am 26 weeks and i have soaked many shirts because i have started to lactate. Does it mean i am going to go into labor early or is it just a sign that my body is getting ready for baby.

  • lol no. some people start at 16 weeks..i just started lactating a couple weeks ago and im 37 weeks =P

  • mine have leaked during my both two, and it was bad, starting around 20-22 weeks. Now im pregnant with #3 ♥yay♥ and im only about 7 weeks along, but i think because i just stopped BF my DD a couple months ago, that might have something to do with while they are leaking earlier this time. Dont worry, its just your body getting ready for baby! ♫
