just wondering when is normal to start leaking milk with a second pregnancy? mine has started at 20weeks and although i cant remember 100% when it came last time (DS is 7 now) im sure it was much much later! very uncomfortable and itchy breasts too and dont remember much of that from last time either!

I started leaking at almost exactly the same time as you with DS (my first pregnancy). I was a bit hmm about it too! Already uncomfortable, itchy and FOUR cup sizes bigger this time... and I'm only 10 weeks. Lovely.

I did from about 20w with my first DS.
No idea with second though, as although I am pregnant, DS is still on one feed a day grin

I know blush

If last time is anything to go by, I'm not done yet. They take a bit of getting used to!

I'm 40 weeks and have had no leakage. Am I supposed to? confused

My right nipple is damp and very itchy, and I got that 'let down' feeling the other day - I'm 24 weeks with my 3rd. I also remember being very shocked to wake up in a damp patch when pregnant with DC2 (but much later in the pg) because I had no leakage at all with DC1.

I've had colustrum-y nipples blush since about week 10 and occasionally get the let down feeling although no actual breast milk leakage that I'm aware of. Itchy breasts all the time but they haven't grown one jot!

I didn't get any leaks or sign of milk first time. This time, DS is still having the odd feed (am 34 weeks) but no leaking!

nothing at all here and I'm 24 weeks. All I feel is very stick nipples, which I've had for about a month.
Saying that, my nipples aren't really getting any darker and my breast have only gone up a cup size.
Anyone else?
