I posted on the april forum also, you shouldn't start pumping this early because it could put you in labor early.  If you really want to start early you should wait until you are at least 37 weeks, and that's only if you want to have your baby early, which isn't really a good thing.  Why do you want to start pumping so early?

Please, please do not pump. You need to avoid over stimulating your breasts right now. It is okay and totally normal to leak, but that should not be pumped.

Buy some nursing pads and keep your nipples clean. Soon enough you will be holding your little one ;-)

I just wanted to add... leaking milk in pregnancy is a good sign! It means your body is getting ready to provide milk for your baby. VERY exciting! Good luck!
