breast milk

If only one boob leaks does that mean only one boob is getting milk

Its possible, but the leaking one has most likely just been stimulated more than the other. My husband has a preference and it was his preferred breast that leaked first.

I dont think so...yer milk doesn't actually come in til a few days after birth

Your actual milk doesn't come in, no, but you CAN leak colostrum a few days or weeks before delivery.

I know that but a lot of people dont leak at all and go on to breast feed...I was just saying I didn't think it determines her milk supply

Im 32 weeks. But started leaking at around 17 weeks or so. i don't think it means you are only getting milk in that boob. many ladies don't leak until days or weeks till they have there babies. Some don't at all until baby comes out. i wouldn't worry so much you'll probably be able to breastfeed from both if your planning too.
