Breast Leakage...?

I'm 31 weeks into my pregnancy and my Dr told me leaking was normal. Well I didn't think anything of it until I noticed something
I used to have my nipples pierced laterally and when I finally noticed they were leaking one day I looked down and it was coming from the piercing holes....
I took the rings out over 6 months ago because I couldn't get them back in after taking them out to clean them. So I figured they would have been closed by know.....guess not.

I guess my question is since I had my nipples pierced will that affect my breastfeeding because I am determined I'm going to breastfeed?? My Dr says no but how exactly does he know unless he breast fed lol.

I have a friend that had hers pierced, she said that it didn't effect breast feeding. She kind of weirded me out saying that the 'shot' in different directions - I know what she means but I don't exactly want to picture it, haha. I have always bee told that you would be fine. I have not experienced this but I am not really sure how it could effect it too much. I would assume that your milk would just come out a little differently. As long as you have supply and demand down there shouldn't be an issue. Good Luck!
