  • It doesn't mean you are going to go into labor. It could be because something is stimulating them - sex, your bra, your clothes.

  • No, it doesn't mean you're going to have preterm labor. Your body is sensitive to the hormones in there, that happens... Just getting ready. :-)

  • I had the same problem with both of my pregnancys and I asked my doctor and she said it is completly normal and is caused by all the hormonal changes going on in your body. It isnt a sign of early labor so dont worry it is very normal and happens to many woman.

  • Anything as far as boob leakage during pregnancy is normal, from not leaking at all to leaking a lot. It doesn't mean anything either way.

  • Nope mine started leaking around that time with my first pregnancy and with this one. My left one only does if I squeeze it but the right one leaks whenever it wants too lol

  • don't worry, you're okay. dont squeeze them when they are leaking because it will only make the colostrum continue to come out. relax darlin, you're gunna be alright! it freaaaaaaaked me out when mine first leaked , too. i was like 20 weeks or so.

  • With my second child the first symptom I had was leaking breasts. I hadn't even taken a pregnancy test...didn't have any idea I was pregnant. Dr. said it was normal. Now on my 3rd pregnancy, I am 13 weeks and leak a little. Its ok :).
