@Mollie-Rose:  I’m 19w and haven’t had this happen to me yet but I remember my sister being 32 weeks pregnant when my cousin was born and holding him caused her to have let down, as did crying babies. I’m expecting it to happen to me too.

@Mollie-Rose:  This is going to be TMI, but whatever (like you said what isn’t lol). My mom was talking to me about breastfeeding (I am 15 weeks, so my boobs aren’t full on leaking yet), and she said that when my aunt was pregnant she got “excited” when my uncle came from working outside and he was all sweaty, and it excited her to the point where her shirt was just soaked in the front. Eww and lol at the same time.

@megz06:  OMG lol!!! I don’t know why this made me think of ‘NEMO’ the octopus that says “hey, you made me ink!” hahaha.

@BellaDee:  LOL! That’s such a cute reference! Instantly made this conversation less gross.

I’m 26+3 and nothing has made me milk yet (other than actually handling the nips) but now I’m going to keep an eye on it!.

I’m almost 37 weeks, and still no milk to be found. I’m always nervous it will happen when DH and I are getting *ahem* frisky, so I always ask him afterwards. Last night he said “Nope, no surprises!”. Phew!

this has been a worry spot for me as well because my girls are part of our bedroom routine and lately I don’t let DH play with them during the deed for fear of him making me leak or getting a taste 😛 Yuck yuck yuck…but it’s okay for our baby 🙂

I didn’t have any milk at all until 24 hours after I gave birth, at which point, my milk came in at an insane pace. I was instantly engorged!

The only time I really leaked was when I was really engorged, or feeding my DD. It never failed, if I was feeding her on one breast, the other would start leaking like a faucet. I always had extra breast pads on hand!

I had some leaking around weeks 23 and 24. It wasn’t too much, and usually only happened when they had been touched a lot, and a couple of times when hubby and I were having sex. After those few weeks I haven’t really noticed any other problems with leaking, I’m 36 weeks now. I’ve told DH to keep his hands off the nipples now, just in case, and I haven’t noticed any leaking of colostrum (pre-milk) unless I’m like squeezing away at them lol. I think for me it may have been to a fluctuation in horomones? But as weird and slightly off putting as it was (especially when it came to sex) I guess at least I know that something is going to happen once I have her and try to breastfeed.

Haha! I have been leaking since about 30 weeks. It always happens when me & DH are getting close (not much DTD has been happening lately though!) or like anytime there’s any stimulation (even going braless at night–i guess my shirt brushing against them makes it happen??). I guess it’s a good sign though? Lol!

I never really leaked during the pregnancies but after oh boy.

All the freaking time. I didn’t even have to do anything and I’d get giant circles completely random. One time I got one when we went out for dinnerand forgot to put them pads ina bra … I never took my jacket off that whole night.

And, not to scare anyone, but after I weaned my firstborn off at 9 months I’d still get leakage here and there for 2 years! after I wasn’t breastfeeding. When I brought it up to my doctor he said some women just take a really really long time to loose all the milk.

I am weaning my youngest off now and it’s just horrible. 

They will leak anytime, nothing triggers it, it just happens. So annoying.

I have a TERRIBLE one.

I was at my DH’s VERY close friend’s funeral, got home (I was 22 weeks, I think) and thank GOD I was wearing a jacket, because my dress was SO wet! (And I was wearing a fairly padded bra)

And it’s happened a few times since then! But that’s what started it!
