24 weeks and producing colostrum?

Is it normal to start producing colostrum (sp) so early? I know it's normal to have some before you have the baby but at 24 weeks?! Also if you have produced colostrum is it normal to go back to not producing it or breast milk?

I noticed it in the shower and that it had a little bit of a white substance with it... so of course out of couriosity I start messing with my breast. Well by the time I get out of the shower I check it to make sure I wasn't just dreaming it and I barley got any out. Is all this normal, am I going crazy or just dreaming somehow?

  • I have the lil white dots at 25weeks, & have had them for maybe 6weeks or so already but no leaking. It all depends on your body. My mom started leaking at about 24weeks when she had my brother, & then at about 16weeks when she was pregnant with me. I also have known people to not leak until days after baby is born. It all depends. I'd say 24weeks is not a worry point & that your body is doing just what it needs to do to get you ready. Congrats! Now you get the pleasure of buying nursing pads to keep it from spotting up your shirts hehe.

  • I'm 32 weeks into my first pregnancy and I was leaking around 20 weeks until now. It's usually when I try to go without a bra, but I keep pads in my bra when it starts up because it usually last a day or 2 and goes away.
