  • No, that is no indication of labor. It is just your body preparing for your baby's arrival. Completely normal. I never stopped lactating after I had my first child almost three years ago. I am now pregnant with my third, and have been producing milk the whole time.

  • nope! your breasts are preparing themselves! not an indication you'll go into labor soon.

  • Totally normal. Just your breasts getting ready for baby! It's no indication of labor or milk supply. Try not to worry about it, but if it leaks a lot, you can use breast pads. Just don't use ones with plastic, because they up the risk of infection on your nipples, which can lead to mastitis.

  • Nope, I had it for a long time and didn't have DS until I was 41 weeks. Sounds like you need a new doctor.

  • It's called colostrum (I think) and it's totally normal.
