  • Happened to me... not dripping but a few drops here and there... your body has to prepare itself for making milk at some point.

  • I'm almost to 32 weeks and haven't had any leakage. However, and this may be TMI, but one day my husband and I were laying in bed and we had recently gone to the breastfeeding class. So he starts messing with my boobs and saying stuff about milking them. I said something along the lines of, "you're not even doing it right, weren't you paying attention?" and then I proceeding to show him how the video said to express your milk and then he starts laughing and I look and there I was dripping colostrum. I should have known that would happen, but didn't really think about it. So now, anytime he touches my boobs, I yell at him to get away. LOL.

  • I was about 23 or 24 wks when it started with me. But i was told that some people dont start to get it till they have their kid. So it all depends.

  • I started leaking colostrum at 22 weeks. That was a little early, but leaking colostrum is SUPER common. It doesn't happen to everyone.

    Why are you worried about it, anyway?

  • I am a bit freaked because this is my first baby and that is one of the things I never knew would happen. I thought that nothing came out until the baby came...guess I was wrong, lol.

  • With my first I didn't get anything until the baby was born and now I'm 30 weeks with my 2nd and still nothing! Not everyone leaks before baby.

  • With my son I never leaked. He was breastfed for 6 months and I NEVER wore a nursing pad in my bra or had any issues with leakage. Some women do, some don't. I didn't even have a drop while I was pregnant, but some women start very early... Just depends.
