So I was sitting in the bath tub with my kindle, and it was wonderful and i start to feel drops, coming out of my nipples and down over my breasts. I look down and my nipples are leaking colostrum already!!


Man...I don't want to start with the breast pads already!

Anyone else?

I'm not actively leaking, but I noticed some very minor crusties on my nipples the other week and knew right away what it was. Checked and yup, colostrum already. I didn't have it until well into the 3rd trimester with DD, so this is crazy early!

I remember leaking really bad everytime i bathed or showered when pregnant with Sebastian, so I am hoping I was only leaking so much because of the bath. I'm going to throw an extra shirt in my truck and buy some breast pads for that moment when they really start....cause I know it's coming!

I leaked really badly with DD after she was born and my milk came in, but not before she was born. The colostrum was just there and I could tell bc I would get little crusties and I could express some if I tried. But it was never enough to drip or dampen a shirt before she was born. That came later when my ninja-cow supply of milk came in.

The first time I leaked with Alex I was pregnant and didn't even know I was leaking because it was warm. I looked in the mirror and had two wet trails down the front of my shirt.

You were lucky you didn't leak beforehand.

Oh geez! I didn't leak with DD until she was a couple weeks old, though I could express colostrum around 35 weeks pregnant. I'd be so mad if I was leaking already!

with my first I started leaking super early. I'd look down and have wet spots on my shirt. I want to say it was earlier on than now.

I have never leaked during pregnancy but always, sometime in the 3rd trimester, I can start to manually express colostrum. I'm not there yet but I anticipate it won't be long.

I always hate the first few weeks of BFing before my supply evens out. I will leak through my shirt on a daily basis. And if we are in public and someone else's baby starts fussing, might as well get me a new shirt.

I had it happen to me pretty early on when I was pregnant with Alex. So far it hasn't really happened this time. I know some is leaking out because there's, uh, stuff dried on the tips sometimes but I'm not experiencing the drips yet, lol.

It never happened when I was pregnant with B. I did notice some crusties the other day though.

M was complaining to me that the other morning she woke up soaked. I didn't imagine it could happen this early (24 weeks) b/c with my previous 3 I didn't leak before they were born and yet I had an AMAZING supply once they got here. I'm actually glad to hear that other ladies are having this occur as well... I can tell her she's not alone and it's perfectly normal.

I never leaked with DD at all but this weekend I started leaking as well! So weird. I'm hoping that means I won't have supply issues this time around!

I've never leaked when pregnant, but I do have some crusties. Even though I weaned Abri last April, I never really dried up. I've been able to express a little since then
