36 weeks, nipples not leaking?

I'm 36 weeks and around 20 something weeks my nipples would produce colostrum when I squeezed them, now they don't produce anything.

What does this mean?

  • I did the same thing. There is nothing wrong, your milk will be here before you know it.

  • Thanks, I was just hoping this doesn't mean I can't breastfeed.

  • My milk came in a couple days after dd was born. Until them you will have colostrum. have you joined the breastfeeding group? They helped me out a lot. It maybe a good thing to go ahead and join and read some of the stuff that is going on there. They were a lifesaver for me.

  • It means nothing. In fact it's perfectly normal.

  • Maybe you squeezed it all out! I have never been able to get anything out of my breasts before the baby was born, so you got me on that one!

  • Do not worry! I NEVER had anything come out before my babies were born. My milk took 2, 3, and 3 days to come in after each birth and I breastfed each one of them for over 1 year. You will be fine, I'm sure!
