    This is my first baby so may sound like a silly question. My boobs have leaked a little bit, hardly nothing for a few weeks but the last few days oh my lord, I've had to use tissues to stop it. I was sitting on the sofa last night watching tv, and touched my top, felt wet so I looked down and I was drenched. Same happened tonight. Think I'm gonna have to get the breast pads out if it carrys on like this. Is it normal at this stage, thought it would'nt be like this until my lo got here?

    Some women leak before labour, some do not leak until a couple of days after giving birth. Nothing to be concerned about.
    Breast pads are your best option. Kleenex/TP is just not going to cut it, especially after LO has arrived.

    Mine started at 28weeks I think. I can go all week without anything and then one evening they'll just start off. They're worst at night whilst I'm sleeping, or after/during sex. Last night I got out the shower and was sitting up in bed on my laptop and felt something on my arm and my right nipple was just streaming and had dripped on my arm where I was typing, lovely!
