Leaking without a bra? Not urgent, just curious.

I am 31 and a half weeks along here. I've been leaking from each breast since around 20 weeks. Not often but every once in a while. The past 2 night I decided to go to bed without a bra on and I leak SO MUCH. Do you think it's because my nighty was rubbing against my nipples which doesn't happen with a bra? Or maybe it's just because I'm so far along into my pregnancy that I'm just naturally leaking more? It was a not so wise move on my part because I have had to wear pads lately because of the leaking, but I wasn't leaking either times i decided to sleep without the bra until bed. I can't afford a NEW bra and none of my OLD bras fit. What do you think ladies?

  • It probably was the stimulation of the cloth against your nipples and the increase in your hormones both.
    Pads and a bra sounds like a good idea at this point. I know they are a pain, but you may continue to leak enough to stain your bed and clothing. :(
    I hope you can afford a new bra soon - you will feel so much better.
    Best wishes to you and congratulations on your soon-to-be-born baby. ♥
