  • It's perfectly normal. :-) colostrum. Some women get it before baby, some don't. It may be time to go get some nursing pads :-) Oh the joys of pregnancy.

  • Yes get some breast pads and tell DH to leave them alone if he is so inclined ;)

  • It's totally normal! Some mother's have it all the way through their pregnancy, others won't have it happen til baby arrives and others can start anywhere inbetween! Relax :) It's normal...
