I am a first-time mom and all this is new to me.
I was actually shocked to find a quarter size wet spot on my nightgown last night. I had gotten up to see a lightening storm and sometime during the lightning display it happened. It was only on the right side. I thought that usually with first-time moms, it doesn't happen until after the birth. I am 30w3d today. I hope that doesn't mean Karsten will be coming early. ?? It is another sign that this birth thing will be happening before too long.
1. There was clearly a spot on my nightgown but I wasn't wearing a bra at the time. I am unsure if having a bra on would have prevented it from leaking onto my shirt. It wasn't a whole lot and it stopped after that. Would I be ok with just wearing a bra?
2. Since I had a tad bit of leakage, should I be wearing nursing pads or something like that just in case? I would hate to be out in public and look down to see a wet spot. I got a few nursing pads free and I opened one up this morning to find out they are huge. I am not leaking that much (knock on wood) and don't want to wear a big bulky thing. I ended up folding a thin panty liner in half and placing it in my bra today. I don't know if the leaking will happen again, but I have a feeling it probably will at some point.
3. Since I only leaked out of my right breast, should I just focus on that one or should I put something on the other in case that one decide to flow.
I really thought that I didn't have to worry about this until birth.
