Breasts leaking at 19 weeks?!

This is my first pregnany and I was just wondering if this is normal? Has anyone else experienced this? I thought that the breasts were not supposed to leak until after the baby was born.

  • I think its normal, ive heard of this happening a few times to women really early. If it continues to happen all the time I'd speak to the doctor about it, but im not sure its something you should be concerned about... Just a little bit uncomfortable,

  • I am 24 weeks and mine have been leaking since about 17 weeks. thankfully really only after i take a shower. but i did ask my doc and she said it's normal. some women leak early others don't. I totally thought that wasn't supposed to happen until after the baby was born, too.
