breasts leaking...

Ok this had tmi written all over it, but...

Is anyone else dealing with leaking breasts already? I'm 17 weeks tomorrow and I did get it early with Landon too, like 20 weeks, but I've noticed it for a few days now, so 16 weeks this time???

Mine leaked really bad for a few weeks. I bought some different bras and it's been better. I'd be really glad if my milk comes in earlier this time!

Count me in Torie! Mine started last week. Really attractive! :P NOT! When they aren't leaking, they have the crusty colostrum covering them. Thank goodness DH isn't home to see this! ;)

I haven't actually noticed mine leaking this time around, but I know they started at 16 weeks last time.

I have noticed the crusty colostrum look though, so I'm sure it isn't long.

My milk from DD didn't dry up until I got PG this time, so I was half expecting to start leaking right away - I'm not going to complain about half-way through ;)

MIne have been leaking for weeks, Torie. With each pregnancy, they seem to leak earlier. DS1 was 26w, DS2 was 21w, and this one was 17w.

I mean it's not pouring out or anything, but leaking.

YES, exactly! When mine aren't leaking, they have the crusty colostrum I'm forever picking it out with my fingernails... I hope that's not bad. I've tried washing it off, but it just doesn't get it all, so I pick it out, then wash it off. eww.

I am jealous of all you ladies...well kind of. Call me strange, but I wish mine did leak. My milk came in so late with my son that I was not very successful in the breastfeeding department. I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, which I think can affect my supply so I am hoping and praying that I will be able to breastfeed my 2nd baby!!

I have it now for the first time ever with my pregnancies. But my DD was my last baby and only one one who breastfed so I assumed it has shown up now because of that.

So THAT's what the crustiness is?? I've been kind of thinking it's the colostrum but wondered if it was too early. If this means leaky breasts, bring it on! I'm just trying to enjoy every little thing that happens...
