    Great. A couple hours ago I was taking off my bra and noticed some clear liquid coming out of just one of my breasts... now there's a thicker white substance coming out :/ yuck.
    I thought it wasn't supposed to start until later...?
    I didn't think it sounded like it would be that bad, but now I'm really creeped out!

    One of mine started to leak a little too. Im lucky that it's not soaking anything. I've just been wearing bras that will put pressure on the nipple so it won't leak Never had that with my other two kids. I just hope it doesn't affect my milk supply after baby is born. It's happening to the breast that is slightly bigger and the one I got the best milk supply from when my kids were breastfeeding, weird. Not a fan of it either.

    I was definitely hoping to be one of the lucky ones to not get it, or at least until much later on.

    I started at 17 weeks. Thought it was the wind getting through to me to begin with (didn't have a bra on under my top) and it felt cold. Wasn't until I went was upstairs couple of hours later and had it dripping from both.

    It's only colostrum, so it isn't 'real' milk just yet. Wear breast pads and try not to put too much pressure on your boobs.
