    I havent got it yet, but i remember waking up at about 22 weeks with my eldest to a huge wet patch on the bed - i thought i'd dribbled in the night lol. I was a bit relieved when i figured it was from my boobs, I couldnt understand how that much saliva could have come from my mouth in one night hehe

    When I took off my bra yesterday, I noticed a small drop of clear liquid on my nipples, but not enough to be "leaking". I was wondering myself about this, because (sorry if this sounds stupid!) I was thinking that if I start leaking now then will I run out of colostrum?

    Hope someone has a better answer for you, sorry!

    oh btw, I didnt really leak with #2&3, so best to just have the pads on hand...I spose they really leak once your milk comes in after birth. Without a pad they can spurt half way across the room without even touching them!

    I haven't been leaking, but have had very chapped nipples already. I am wondering if anyone else is experiencing this?
