I don't know if I'm pregnant, because me and my husband haven't been preventing it so it is a possibility.. but last night my boobs started leaking colostrum, they have been tender for a couple of weeks, and everything that happened when I got pregnant with my son has happened again but the colostrum is new.. I'm going to get a blood test tomorrow I just wanted to know if this has happened to any one else..

Generally it comes later in pregnancy. I still have milk and my youngest is almost 5 and I stopped breast feeding at 7 months. So it could just be hormones. Good. Luck with your test.

It is a possibility, and as you already have a son, your body knows what all this pregnancy stuff entails, so it's getting ready a little early.
I began leaking colostrum when I was sixteen, after I lost a baby. I never stopped, I still leak colostrum at 24 years old. I have had a child since then and now leak fore milk. (This probably will not happen, okay, relax!)
I'd go get the infamous blood test from your GP and find out what level your HCG hormone levels are at. Anything above 50 indicates early pregnancy.
Stress does bring on this reaction, along with heighten estrogen levels. best to see the doc!
Hope you sort it out, kitten :)

I called the doctor this morning she said it could just be because my son is only 11 months and I breastfed. I'm debating if I want to go get a blood test I think I'll just wait it out, my husband is more anxious then me he is ready for number two like no other lol. Thanks for the help!!

I started to leak when my son was about 6-7mos old and was very tender and sore. My OB said it could be due to stress and my hormones still coming back into balance after having my son. I never leaked while pregnant. Take a pregnancy test...

I leaked colostrum from about 4mths gestation but i have both my nipples pierced so thought that may have been the only reason. I have heard of several women whose breasts also leaked very early.
