Second pregnancy - should breasts be leaking already?

[deleted account] ( 6 moms have responded )

I am pregnant with my second child and I am 31 weeks along. Over the weekend I started leaking from both breasts and I just want to know if that is normal? Is it a sign that the baby may come early? I did breastfeed my first baby but haven't for over a year. I didn't experiance this with my first pregnancy so I am not sure if this is normal and should be expected.

Like Jacklyn, I started leaking around 16 weeks with my first. My daughter was born on her due date. It's perfectly normal so don't stress.

I only have one child, but I started leaking at 16 weeks when I was pregnant and I was told it was fine, just normal for me.

I wondered that too because it didn't happen in the first pregnancy but my doctor said it is fine. So don't worry. I am 5 days off my due date now and it is getting worse so don't be alarmed...YOU ARE NORMAL :) Good luck

Oh yeah I had some leaking way early with both second and third pregnancies. Totally normal! Oh and they both came at 39 weeks, so I wouldn't worry about baby coming early just based on the leaking.
