Did anyone go throughout all of pregnancy without their boobs starting to leak? Currently 38 weeks and haven't experienced this yet

I didnt leak at all until baby was about a week old and from then on ii was like daisy the cow.

3 successful pregnancies - boobs never leaked. Didn’t leak after baby was born either.

Boobs never leaked in pregnancy, or after the baby was born. Couldn't express milk. Breastfed an enormous baby exclusively for around 7 months because she was not keen on actual food at first.

Yes mine didn’t leak until DD was born - breastfed for 5 months until I returned to work

Exactly the same story as VirginiaWolverine, only difference being til 6 months. He does still feed a lot and I wonder if it means my supply is little and often but who knows

2 pregnancies, 2 breastfed babies, 0 leaking boobs. I had to throw the pack of breast pads away unused.

No leaky boobs during pregnancy, and never while breastfeeding. I've combi fed (but mainly BF) for 6 months, but never managed to express much. The milk must be there because baby has not got this chubby on a bottle of formula a day.

Two children no leaky boobs until bf established.

3 pregnancies. Boobs never leaked until after I'd had all of them.

Never leaked in pregnancy with either of my boys. Did leak after birth once my milk came in and for the first few months each time. Breastfed DS1 till 2, and DS2 for 13 months.

I went overdue by almost 2 weeks with my first and my boobs never leaked at all, even when I squeezed them to try and hand express. Once my baby was born they leaked all the bloody time lol.

None here either - and EBF 2 for 1 year and currently 20 months.

Boobs never leaked either here. Leaked once after DD was first born, when my milk came in. She's almost 9 months and EBF.
No trouble expressing either.

2 pregnancies, mine never leaked. This is not something to be concerned about at all.

Mine never leaked, though I never really got a milk supply after birth either.

2beautifulbabs Thu 08-Oct-20 09:23:35

2 pregnancies here as well and my boobs never leaked even after babies were born.

WildCherryBlossom Thu 08-Oct-20 09:42:35

My milk never came in until about 3 days after the baby was born. From then on in I leaked like crazy until I stopped feeding (around a year old with each one)

Mine never leaked in pregnancy or until my milk came in. Once my milk came on day 4 after birth I had to double up the breast pads and still sometimes soaked my my tops, PJs and bed sheets.
