I just got to the six month mark and I'm leaking colostrum... Isn't that not supposed to happen until later? Its clear fluid with some cloudy white stuff in it. Anyone else had this?

i started leaking at 12 weeks. this is also my first pregnancy. when i asked my midwife she said it was quite common, and apparently the larger your breasts are, the earlier/more you will leak

Okay thanks! It is my first pregnancy, and apparently its rare to happen this early with your first so it worried me!
