Is it normal to be leaking breast milk at 20 weeks?

This is my first pregnancy and my doctor says im only five months pregnant but is it normal to already be leaking breast milk? It just kind of makes me uneasy!

  • Yes! Some women leak the whole time, some only partially. Every pregnancy is different too. With my first I leaked from about 23 weeks on. With this one, I leaked around 20 for a few weeks, and now, nothing. My tatas hurt so I know I'm making milk though. But yes, totally normal!

  • You are not leaking MILK, your body won't make it til after baby's born. But yes, it is normal to leak colostrum during pregnancy, but not everyone does. If you're worried about it staining, or leaking through for people to see, buy some breast pads.
