When does..........

When does the colostrum come in? I heard it was supposed to come in at 30wks but I don't think I have it. How can you tell when you get it? Do you leak??

  • Mine came in around the 22 week mark but everyone is different. My boob was squashed the way I was sleeping and I woke up with a puddle of fluid by my nip. Curiosity got the best of me and I gave both boobs a mighty squeeze and it just dripped out. I don't normally leak it though, I have to squeeze it out.

  • Every person is different. Mine came in shortly after I found out I was 6 weeks pregnant. I leaked.

  • Mine didn't come in until about 40 weeks. That said, it may have come in sooner. I noticed it would be there after I showered and thought it was just water droplets at first. ;)
