I know this was brought up a couple weeks ago, but in the past couple of days, my boobs, particularly the left one, have been leaking like crazy!

Yesterday when I putting up the tree, I kept feeling something wet and looked down and there would be a wet spot on my shirt. So I'd move my shirt, and minutes later, there'd be a new spot! I did not have this much leaking with Noelle!

Is there any significance to the leaking or is it just hormones? This is so weird. LOL! I feel like I need to start wearing pads in my bra.

Wow! That sounds pretty significant, I know once the baby is born the progesterone drops and that gets milk production going. I've had tiny little bit of colostrum come out but never enough to leave a mark let alone wet through my shirt. I'm not sure if this is common, hopefully someone else will be along who's experienced this who can be more help. My only advice is to definitely ask your OB about it.

I should add that I didn't have on a bra when this happened. It was clear liquid and not dripping leaking. I'm pretty sure it's nothing to worry about since leaking is common, particularly in the 3rd trimester, which we're not far from. I'm not worried, just annoyed mostly. LOL!

I was the one who was complaining about it a couple weeks ago. OMG! I'm so over it already! It's been happening to me since like 18 weeks.

Mine is the same. Wet spots on my shirt when I'm not wearing a bra.

I think it's more common after your first pregnancy. It seems the more often you are pregnant the more the weird things how up haha

LOL! That must be true because I swear I only leaked once with DD. Bra pads will become my best friends when I nurse.

Oh ok I thought there was a lot of leaking (like when your milk comes in) yep it sounds like a pain in the butt though. That's one thing I don't miss, leaking so much my pads would literally be soaked a short time after I put them on! I made enough milk to feed 5 babies lol.

I've always heard you're more likely to leak, or leak more, with each pregnancy.

I wouldn't say I've leaked more with each pregnancy, but it is something that has happened with each pregnancy after the first.
The annoyingly freaky boob related thing to me is that mine have turned like purple.

I guess I'm the freak of nature then, because this is my first pregnancy and I'm a leaky faucet!

Luckily I haven't had to deal with this much yet. Only when DH gets too excited with them lol With my 2nd pregnancy, though, I remember leaking quite a bit right around 25 weeks and it just lasted through the pregnancy!
