I'm 35 weeks today and my hubby and I went shopping today and when we got home I was changing and I noticed one of my nipples were sticky and kind of white...just wondering does that mean I'm gonna start leaking?
Ya its most likely colostrum... it doesnt mean your gonna necessarily leak enough that you need to wear breast pads, it may just be enough that you notice it dried in your nipples more than anything... but it is possible to leak enough that you do infact need to wear a pad so id have some on hand just incase as there isnt any warning if its gonna happen... try not to stimulate them, like dont try to express any... that will make it worse...
