I'm almost 38 weeks and my breasts definitely feel engorged but I'm just wondering when leaking started happening for everyone. I hear it's different for everyone, and that the milk should arrive when the baby does. My SO will hardly touch my nipples now because he doesn't want to activate any milk flow..lol. any ideas/experience?
At any time during pregnancy. I was like...25 weeks. But it was only a drop when I would squeeze. My milk came in 2 days after my son was born. He was crying and I suddenly started leaking. It was literally pouring out.
But you're probably not engorged yet. That usually doesn't happen until your milk fully comes in after birth. They will get large, heavy and hard as rocks, and tender.
I'm only 32 weeks and sometimes I run like a fountain. I have to wear nursing pads all the time.
with my first pregnancy...nothing happened until the baby was actually born....with this pregnancy I haven't leaked..but if i squeeze i'll see a drop of colostrum come out...I don't feel that my breasts have changed in size at all.
Anytime during pregnancy. And your milk probably won't come in 2-4 days after birth.
It depends on your body. I started leaking around 20 weeks.
17ish weeks with this pregnancy.
I was like 20 weeks or so I woudl stand in the shower and as soon as the hot water hit my chest it would seriously spray out like a pressure hose or something it was insane.... My friend was leaking when she wasnt even pregnant just from living with me...
I started leaking really early at 13 weeks and literally had to wash my sheets every few days cause you could see spots of dried colostrum all over the sheets.
With my first I started to leak a tinnny bit around 18 weeks. This time around I'm just about 21 weeks and I've been leaking for a week or two. Not a ton, but enough that I'm going to have to buy breast pads.
I started leaking at 24 weeks(now 26.3) and its just continuing , i had to buy nipple pads which just suck lol best of luck :)
im 34 weeks and i have not leaked though out my pregnancy so far everyone is diffrent and pregnancys are as well
