TMI time: When did your boobs start leaking?

I'm 22 weeks along and noticed my boobs were leaking a tiny amount of fluid today. I had no idea this would happen so early! I guess it'll only get worse from here on out? Eek!

I had to wear breast pads from 16 weeks onwards. I was on a weekend away in Dublin with dh and some friends when I noticed big wet patches on my top. Cue a mad dash to the nearest Boots!. I wore breast pads long before I got into my maternity clothes as I wasn't even showing when it started!

Tiny bit at 19 weeks then it stopped.

Mine leaked a lot with both pregnancies from 16-17 weeks, particularly at night. Totally normal.

Oooohh 37 weeks for me

grin I think I did a near identical OP a few months ago. It started early, I think about 16-18 weeks? Am 35 weeks now, and haven't been quite as bad for the last few weeks (sometimes days without), but for a while there I had wet spots on the sheets and crusty nipples every morning. Seems to happen most at night/early morning for me.

Did those of you that leaked early turn out to be good 'milkers'? I'm 37 weeks and have had no leakage.

I had no leaking with number 1 right up until birth. It took a while for my milk to come in about 4/5 days but had no problems feeding my ds until he was a year old

From 18 weeks onwards I got a tiny bit of leakage at night. I don't think leaking early on is a sign that you will have more milk than someone that doesn't leak.

Hehe. Glad to hear I'm not the only one. And glad I noticed it at home with only DH to witness!

No leaking here in pregnancy and oversupply issues initially and still feeding at almost 20 months.

Hangingbellyofbabylon Tue 21-Jul-09 23:00:58

no leaking here at all with first two pregnancies but copious leaking for months afterwards!

From about 16-17 weeks on DC2 & 3 & 4 mainly at night until about week 22 then all the time but none on DC1 until birth

With ds1 no leaking at all (and unable to get ds1 to either latch or to be able to express after my c-section with him at 38 weeks). With ds2, a small amount of leaking from around 35 or so weeks plus oversupply initially after birth (also c-section, but at term). He fed till 13 months.

Wilkiepedia Wed 22-Jul-09 08:21:43

Yes I produced lots of milk within 2 days of birth. 11oz I managed to express in one go <<freakishly proud>> grin

They didn't leak during pregnancy
