I’m just curious to know how many of you were obviously leaking during pregnancy? I’m almost 21 weeks and have been leaking for the past week or so. It first happened when Fiance were being intimate, but got worse last night while sitting at the dinner table with FI’s parents during dinner and getting a wet spot on my top! And just now could feel the baby kicking then a few minutes later a wet spot appearing! Now I’m getting self-concious about it and will need to pick up some breast pads at some point! luckily for me Fiance isn’t grossed out by it!
So how many leaked like this during pregnancy and when did it start for you?
Thanks in advance!

@Mrs D: Didn’t start until 3rd tri for me, around maybe 32/33wks. Was very light until 36+ weeks when it got a lot heavier; worked out well because my son was born at 38wks so it was nice to already have my milk in by that point. Apparently, it’s not just linked to PG; found that out the hard way when 3yrs later, I still leak every now and then. Virtually any kind of stimulation sets my body off thinking it’s trying to feed something… luckily OB says it’s normal; go figure!

I just started about a week or so ago (around 30 weeks, I’m 31 weeks 3 days now). I had to get some breast pads because sometimes it’s pretty bad (I was using tissues). I didn’t think it was too bad but one morning I woke up soaked through my shirt. Since I’ve become more used to it the past couple of days I can now usually tell when I’m leaking.

I’m not soaking anything, but I have a little bit leaking here and there. It seems to be more at night.

I’m 35 weeks tomorrow and I haven’t had any leaking yet – really hoping it stays that way for the next 5 weeks!

I did when I was pregnant with DS… thankfully this last time with Dirty Delete I didn’t leak. I was SO happy about that. lol

I didn’t at all when I was pregnant. But, you did just remind me of something that I thought I’d share (dont mean to thread-jack, and maybe most ladies are aware these things exist, but I didn’t know…) Not that it would help with the leaking now, but when you have your baby, if you’re breastfeeding, this might be useful: (I have friends that swear by it – they never need to pump!)

I wanted to so I could get a head start on breastfeeding but nothing came in till DS was born
