25 weeks and one boob is already leaking!

should i be concerned?

i have AND, so of course, have all these irrational thoughts about baby coming early, dying during childbirth, baby dying or being severely brain damaged, etc.

i remember leaking with DD2, but i don't remember if it was from such an early stage.

FWIW, i think they have my dates a bit wrong, because i conceived coming off ERPC for missed mc and had only one very long cycle before falling pregnant again, and DS1 will come ahead of date.

bless you mine started at 16 weeks and just got worse to point of having to wear pads from 20 weeks

on the plus side was able to bf til she was 10 months quite easily

i had a stonking supply with DD2, so here's hoping.

i had to express a little off each boob before putting her on when she was first born because i'd literally be spraying milk when i heard her cry.

Yep, completely normal. I don't know if gender of the baby maybe plays a part? WIth dd I leaked from very early on but with ds I didn't leak at all, to the point where I worried if my milk would ever come in (am now a proud member of the leaky boobs brigade) If you're now having a boy (congrats by the way- based on my oh so extensive 6 weeks experience boys are fab wink) after 2 girls that could be one reason. I had horrible AND with both of mine, so I understand how every thing can worry you- I was at the hospital so many times with ds I swear they must have known me by name by the end

it's a boy.

i remember with DD2, i was squeezing it off after about 37 weeks. she arrived at 38+2 and after sleeping a while, she fed for quite a while.

I did from around 20 weeks, I think. Both DSs were born at full term. So slightly annoying but not something to worry about.
