    On my third pregnancy. Previous ones I leaked tiny amounts from about 7 months onwards but it got more about three days before labour started...and even then it wasn't a lot, just a few drops....

    I only leak if I try to express a little. That started around 33 weeks for me. A friend of mine leaked enough in the last tri that she needed to use breast pads & has a few of her bras stained from leaking.

    I started leaking in second tri :dohh: But like the others have said it varies for everyone and just because you don't leak doesn't mean you won't be able to breastfeed :D

    Haven't leaked at all in pregnancy.
    I started at around 2-3 days after birth though...

    Welcome to 3rd tri! I haven't leaked either. I think it is more likely and might come earlier with subsequent children.
