How do you know that you aren't producing any breastmilk?  At this stage, your body is likely producing colostrum but it only leaks in some women.  Your milk will take 1-5ish days to come in after the baby is born.

 You shouldnt be producing milk yet anyway...it doesnt come in until a few dayts after baby is born.  I didnt leak with either of mine and had no problems bf.  It could also be that your body has adjusted enough by now that you arent over producing.

I wouldn't worry about it.  I have only ever been able to really express a little colostrum in late pregnancy.  Remember, in most cases, milk doesn't come in until roughly 3-5 days after baby is born.  I wouldn't fret at all.  :)

Hugs.......Your milk will come in after the baby is born.
http://www.breastfeeding-problems.com/breastmilk-production.html

During your pregnancy, just half way through, your endocrine control system will start to trigger the making of colostrum , your milk supply will start to come in 30-40 hours after giving birth to baby. Your baby’s stomach is so small at this stage that he only needs a few drops of colostrum with every feed to be satisfied.

Your body doesn’t produce milk before baby is born as your levels of progesterone are too high, but once you deliver the placenta your levels of progesterone will drop. The high level of prolactin now triggers copious milk production “lactogenesis 2”

Moms should start to breastfeed baby as soon as possible as this will start to release prolactin and therefore trigger increased breastmilk production.

Moms only start to feel the increased breast fullness 2 – 3 days after birth.

When your body is signaled to start producing milk, the hormone oxytocin is released and this causes the milk to be pushed out of the breast.
