I started having very slight lactation as early as 20 weeks. I am now 27 weeks and over the last 3-4 days it has picked up a lot. Mostly when my husband and I become intimate or even if I have slightly risque dreams or night sweats. I was wondering how common this is and when is too early to start pumping and saving the milk for when my little one gets here? This is my first pregnancy so I'm trying to learn as I go!

I don't know how common your symptoms are, but I wouldn't pump, at least without talking to your doctor. Pumping could release hormones that might trigger contractions and send you into early labor. I'm not an expert, but just be very careful and do not pump unless you've talked to your doctor.



Good luck with your pregnancy!

Thank you!!! I've just read everywhere where people have pumped early but that's definitely a good idea to ask my Dr. first! LOL
