Its only colostrum at this stage, milk doesn't come in until after the baby is born. It can't hurt to pump and save though as colostrum is very important.
Just be careful as pumping can cause contractions so if you feel any twinges to stop.

I've been contracting but they aren't strong enough for me to go in. They hurt but they don't.

Im leaking alot as well but im only 21 weeks . Is that bad ? I started leaking around 17 weeks .

I'd probably stop until you're closer to 40 weeks if its causeling you to contract. Bub is still developing at this stage.

Not bad, every woman is different and leaking or no leaking has no bearing on your ability to breastfeed your baby.

I've been leaking since 16 weeks but this last week it's just pouring out. Just didn't know if I should start saving/pumping.
