  • Yep. Some leak even sooner and some don't leak at all.

  • Yes and no! :D It's normal for some moms and not normal for others! Nothing to worry about. Some moms have their milk come in as soon as they are pregnant. Some leak right away, others don't leak at all. Sounds like you may need to get some breast pads to wear!

    Congrats on your pregnancy!

  • Perfectly normal. And it was probably colostrum, not milk. Your actual milk won't come in until the baby is a few days old (typically). Some women leak a lot during pregnancy and some don't leak at all. My first two pregnancies I leaked, but my third I didn't until he was born.

  • hahaha, sorry, but yes! I have been since about the 30wk mark as well. try to sleep in a sports bra if you've got one, it'll keep your nipples from being stimulated.

  • I was lactating around 30 weeks but have stopped since then. Doc said it was normal and that it'll come back once my boy finally arrives.
