  • Yes it is normal. It can happen at all different times for women and can vary from pregnancy to pregnancy. I started leaking right around then myself. You are leaking Colostrum or "pre-milk." Your regular milk will come in after the baby is born. You can't do much about it except wear nursing pads. Discomfort is also normal (except if the breasts become very hot and painful to touch accompanied by a fever).

    Don't try to express it (make it come out). If it comes out on its own, that's fine. Purposely expressing it can trigger labor contractions.
