  • have you had a child before?? or do you have a toddler ?? they can contribute to it coming in early.. otherwise its not an issue.. just get some breast pads.. if it really concerns you see a dr. but as long as it isnt hurting or looks pussey then i wouldnt be too worried.

  • Yep, everybody's different. With twins your body will need to produce more milk.

  • I didn't leak till the end of my pregnancy but I think it just depends on the woman. Each woman's hormones and body is different.

  • I am also pregnant with twins and I started leaking as well around maybe 13 weeks or so I believe..My Dr said that is to be expected. Our bodies are working double time to prepare for our babies =)
