  • Mine did right before my milk or colostrum or whatever it is before birth started coming in! I'm 37 weeks and I've been leaking for about two weeks now. Mine got sore and tender right before, and then I started having to wear pads soon after, so get ready! :)

  • Mine are killing me and I'm only at 15 weeks.....the soreness of the breasts as a whole from the first trimester are gone, but if anything touches my nips it's agony. But, yep, sadly it's normal
