Re: colostrum

My OB said your milk can come in early. This is most likely what it is.

Re: colostrum

With my last baby, I started leaking somewhere between 20 and 25 weeks. I thought it was early too, but since then I've heard others say the same. You're probably right that it's colostrum, and it may increase as you get closer to the baby being born. By the time I had my little guy, I had to wear a sports bra to bed, and put nursing pads in it, because otherwise I would wake up with a wet shirt and sheets!

Re: colostrum

Yeah, you can definitely leak this early. However it never happened to me! I always wondered why it happens to some and not others, but apparently it does. So, no worries, it's normal!

Re: colostrum

This past week, I've been leaking like crazy (I'm 27 weeks, BTW). I remember leaking with my first pregnancy, but I couldn't tell you how early.

Re: colostrum

Sg, I started leaking very early - by about 17 weeks, I was really freaked out as everything I read said it happens much later. But I was told, as seems to be the answer with everything, that "everyone is different" and that it's just colostrum and that it's normal. Weird thing is, it's only on the left side.
