I know this will sound weird but ever since I got my pump I have been antsy to use it! I have only barely started to get colostrum (spelling?) and am only 32 weeks. I just want to know if it is okay at anytime before delivery to pump? Or do I have to wait until he arrives?

NOOO- pumping can cause preterm labor!! Also it can cause you milk to come in early, and baby needs that colostrum, which is why it take a day or two for milk to come in after baby is born...Colostrum is babies immunesystem, you milk continues to help, but if you CAN'T continue breastfeeding, as long as you got the few days of colostrum in, baby is better off that never having it at all..
wait it out, TRUST me, pumps are not fun-
You will soon learn that.
