Yes, around the same time. Buy some washable breast pads or buy disposables and you'll be covered.

Yes, completely normal smile

Yes I'm started leaking around 20 weeks but only a tiny amount. This is my second pregnancy.

That happened to me too.

I bought some Boots washable pads and I'm still using them now DD is 11 Weeks old smile

I was tempted to start a similar thread, so glad to hear it's normal! Mine is only a drip or two but it seems to dry up and go a bit crusty (tmi! Sorry!).

Yep! Mine did this the evening of my wedding, 3 months before due date. Good timing..!

Mine started at 17 weeks. Sometimes just drippels but sometimes I wake up and my t-shirt is soaked..
I'm 25 weeks now..

Yes around 20 weeks but it stopped. Now 35 weeks and sometimes a bit sticky.

Yes, happen to me around 6 months, we were out for a meal for my mils birthday and I thought I'd just spilt my drink, then dh decided to point out in front of both fil and mil that it was the other side too ........ shock

Happened to me around the same time but only lasted for a couple of weeks, I think it was a practice run.

Hi Walnut,

Yeah I remember those days, around the same period of pregnancy. Freaked me right out, slept on my small bump and had patches on each boob! From then on I wore breast pads out and about and towards the end, tried to extract some to stop them being so heavy. This also helped my body make more in preparation for when my girl was born.
My daughter will be 3 in two days and I'm still producing very small amounts!

I should also add that I never got the hold on breast feeding, extracted for two days and moved to formula as my girl never got on with me.
