Leaking breasts

This is my second pregnancy and ill be 30 weeks on Thursday. My breasts have been leaking for at least two weeks and leaking a lot. I don't remember it happening this far out and this much but it was 5 years ago. So is it normal for this to start happening this soon? Also could the fact the baby is big and I'm measuring 3 weeks ahead have anything to do with it?

  • Totally normal! Each pregnancy is different. I leaked a lot my first pregnancy, hardly at all the 2nd time. Some women leak a lot, from as early as 20 weeks, some never leak at all. All normal!

  • maggiemom2000 - I just thought it was something at the very end, your breasts getting ready. What is leaking out and what is the point of it?

  • It's colustrum.....don't know if there is a point to it other than making milk and sometimes there is too much in the ducts and it's gotta go somewhere!....my ex-hubby used to love it, lol.
