haha i have leaky boobies too!!! lol
i've had a few headaches, i asked my doctor and she said just take a low dose of tylenol, should help. i got the REGULAR strength it's 350 mg, check the bottle most are 500mg. but that usually settles it for me. if you get bad bad ones maybe you should ask your doc. back pain is common, cause you got extra weight forming in the front! :) try to sit up straight, and you can try a hot bath or a heating pad.

Leaking boobs and upper back pain is normal due to the relaxin in your body, your back is a lot looser and a teeny bit of strain can really hurt - and remember you are carrying around a basketball all day - so your centre of balance is screwed! LOL
Headaches (if your BP is fine) can either be pregnancy hormones or linked to the pain in your upper back radiating up your neck and into your head.

I've been leaking since I was 12 weeks along. If you have severe headaches it could be a sign of high blood pressure. Back pain is normal, too.

With my most recent pregnancy I had horrendous headaches, a bit later than you at about 31 weeks - I was told I shouldnt worry about this but its horrible! I didnt have leaky boobs until about a week before he was born, but I also suffered upper back pain due to the way he was lying with his feet right under my ribs. I think all you are feeling is quite normal, although if the headaches persist you might want to check with the Dr.
