Lactating: labor??

I've been lactating little by little for the last few months (I'm due Friday the 18th) and today and yesterday I've been leaking more and more and it seems to come much more easily. Could this possibly be a sign that labor could be here within a few days?? I'm a ftm and I just want some hope that I'll go into labor soon lol.

You start to lactate in the last month of pregnancy.. Totally normal..

Trust me you don't want labor yet enjoy the rest of your pregnancy. Some people lactate the entire time lol.  But your baby will come when he or she is ready.  I have 2 boys and my 3rd boy is due February 14th my first was 4 days late and my second was 5weeks early he had to be hospitalized for a week with underdeveloped lungs and I had had steroid injection for 2weeks prior to avoid that happening. Scariest thing ever to go through seeing your beautiful baby under a little mask struggling to breathe. Not trying to scare anyone it just to let you know you should be happy that little baby is safe and growing into what will soon be a beautiful healthy life!

I know these last few days have been strange because I've been lactating since month 5 and these past few days it's just been a lot more. I'm definitely very thankful I've gone full term with my little one without any problems. I have a friend right now that isn't so lucky with her newborn so I'm definitely counting my blessings!

I bet your brothers are extremely protective! I told him we might try in a couple years. If it happens i consider every baby a blessing so I'll be happy weather I end up with a girl or not my boys are mama's boys to the fullest so it's great:)
