Is it normal to have leaky brests at 16 weeks?

My breasts have been leaking but I didnt think I was far enough along for that! Is it normal?

  • All amounts of leakage are normal, and none of it has anything to do with your pregnancy or breastfeeding after birth. Some women start leaking as early as the second trimester, some don't leak at all, ever, even after their milk comes in; those and everything in between are completely normal. :)

  • Some women leak this early, some earlier, some later, and some not at all. I never once leaked during pregnancy, and successfully nursed two kids.
