Ok, so at my last appt my OB asked me if I had started lactating yet, because it often comes sooner with a second pregnancy.

I can safely say that, no, I have not started really "lactating" so much as in I'm leaking into my bra.


If I do squeeze my nipples, fluid comes out of my right nipple, but not my left.


Is that odd that it's not coming out of both? It just seems weird....but then again a lot of pregnancy symptoms can be weird.

There is such a wide range of normal for that, sounds totally normal to me.

With my last (baby #5) I could NEVER squeeze anything out before I had her at all. I breastfed her for 16 months.

When do you typically start lactating with your first pregnancy?

I have never been able to squeeze anything out ahead of time but it has never effected my supply. I breastfed for 9 months for each child. I wouldn't worry. I have friends that have had to wear nursing pads through their final trimester because they were leaking so often. LOL. Anything is normal really..

That's what I thought. I had some colostrum with my first in the last month or two, but no actual lactation. I guess it depends on the individual woman, and has no bearing on supply whatsover. It took me about five days for my milk to come in last time. I guess it's the same theory as size not really mattering when it comes to supply either. You could have huge bazongs and dry up early, or itty bitties and nurse for years.

Haha! It's so true! Size really doesn't matter. My right bOOb is totally smaller than my left and yet it is always the one I could pump the most out of.

Yea I'm mostly getting fluid out of my left, it was like that for about 3 weeks now I am getting some out of my right but not as much as the left. I dont think I would get anything if I squeezed, its just random when it decides it wants to come out!
