Leaky boobs. When do they usually start?

I can't remember this time around but I've woken up this morning (26 weeks) with really tender leaky boobs and I'm sure I was further on last time.
They are so uncomfortable really hoping it won't be like this for the next 14 weeks!

Mine didn't leak with either pregnancy!

Mine started at 15 weeks! Not all the time though, just randomly.

Never had them in any of my previous pregnancies.... Though who knows with this one, there's a first time for everything!

How embarrassing!! I don't sleep with a bra on and it seems to be happening more at night and I'm waking up and they are leaking.
Almost like if I sleep on my side it's squashing them.
Should I have been wearing a bra? I will now.

Mine have been going since about 26 weeks... To the point where iv considered breast pads as its so heavy especially at night. I find it comes and go's though.

With my first it started by 24 weeks. With the 2nd not until I had actually had him.

Mine started at 26 weeks, had to start sleeping in a bra and breast pads and wore breast pads during the day too. Before I did that I had a few nights of sitting in bed reading while dabbing at my nipples with a tissue every minute. Not my sexiest moment.

Got told by everyone it would mean I had a good milk supply. Ds refused to breast feed hmm
