Colostrum @ 5wks...what?!

I am 5 wks with my second baby, my first is 9mo, and today at work I looked down and noticed I had leaked a little on my shirt. Is this normal? I didn't leak at all last time. I also feel like I have filled out quite a bit in my tummy. Anyone else experience anything like this?

Its normal. I could still express minimal amounts of milk up to 2 years after I stopped breastfeeding. Now 11 years later and pregnant with my second I started noticing small trace amounts of colostrum at 3 months.

Yes it can be normal especially with your children being so close.  Each time one of my children turned seven months I found out I was pregnant again.  I would start the pregnancy leaking,  stop in the middle and start again at the end.  No worries
