You absolutely do NOT try to stimulate milk production while you're still pregnant. It can cause labor!

You won't make a drop until the babies are born. You have to wait for your hormonal changes.

Don't worry about getting a sign of milk before they're born. Before my first I never leaked a single drop until the day he was born and I had way too much milk once it came in and I nursed for 19 months. It will happen and like they said don't play with it now because it can cause even worse preterm labor.

The placenta detaching will cause milk to come in. Some women get a substance coming from their breasts durning pregnancy but it is a very small amount. Once your babies are born, you can use stimulation, fenugreek, blessed thistle, and regularly emptying your breasts etc. to get your milk in quickly and your supply up rapidly.
