    For me it's been within the past week, 32-33 weeks ish. I was in the bath earlier and squeezed my nip and a glob of it came out! I called my OH to come have a look as I think I got a bit too excited lol!!!

    When did you start leaking?

    I started leaking at about 21 weeks, which has put an end to my snuggling up side by side with OH in bed as a boob gets squashed and I leak everywhere! I have breast pads, but typically it doesnt happen when I wear them lol

    Everyone must be different- mine haven't started yet and I'm 36 weeks! I'm just waiting for that embarassing moment when it happens and I'm not prepared! lol

    Since like 22 weeks i've had these squishy/crusty beads on my nippes that i'm assuming was colostrum
    Just recently I was able to squeeze out a liquid deep golden in color, but only from my left breast.
    Now thats what I call colostrum!

    I've had no leaks either, and I didn't with my son. Can I just stress to everybody concerned about lack of leakage, that it does not mean you won't be able to breastfeed!
