Self hand expressing colostrum?

I'm 28 weeks and leak colostrum every few days, if not once a day. Sometimes my breasts feel firm and they start to leak a lot so I express some of it to get it out so it feels more comfortable. Is this okay? I heard nipple stimulation can induce labor but I press on the breast itself not really the nipples. It's just so irritating to be leaking, and when I express some it usually stops.

I leaked early with my first too. I think you'll be alright as far as inducing labor goes. I'm not too convinced it works all that well anyway. lol. But I agree. If you're really concerned go to your dr

I do not seem to see a problem with that because you are just letting it out as long as you are not being hurtful or rough I really think that you are okay but speak to your doctor if you are that concerned
