Colostrum comes in first. Some leak some dont but thats when some moms notice it. After birth when the placenta is "birthed" it triggers your milk makin hormones to start. About 2-5 days after the colostrum will turn to breast milk.

i started noticing i was leaking colostrum around 20 weeks. i am now 30 weeks and when i squeeze my nipple i see the colostrum and a little tiny bit of milk with it. i hear it comes in when you are going into actual labor but i don't know this is my first baby lol

I never leaked during pregnancy (and actually it's not a good idea to do too much nipple stimulation or try to express anything while you're pregnant as it can possibly trigger preterm labor) colostrum was definitely there just as soon as my son was born and started to nurse, my milk came in after three days and YES you'll know when it happens, I woke up 3 cup sizes bigger than when I'd gone to bed... I nursed him for two years until he decided to wean. It's an amazing gift to share and helps create an incredible bond with your child. Best of luck.

Haha that's funny. My bf is afraid of touching mine now because of how sore they've been lol (they feel great now). And I'm always looking at my body and exploring. Lol my dark line just came on my stomach last week so now i feel "official"

So you can actually tell when milk is present? Interesting! Our bodies are amazing! Idk if I'll be able to go 2 years but I'll see when the little one arrives

It really is different for each person and sometimes each pregnancy. I never leaked with my first two and had to pump to start producing, but with my third kid I was producing the day after delivery. I should say though I always have birth by well 40 so this might have something to do with it.

lmao yea he grabs at em because he said they look way more plump and squishy i have been with him 6 years so its not weird when he grabs at him I'm use to it lol. oh yea. how far along are you? i have my line now. and my belly button is poking out a little bit now also and i turned 30 weeks friday. my belly is so round and very shiny also and I'm like whoa. but now i can't see when i shave down there and that depresses me. i feel so fat :( lol yea you're so lucky you're not leaking. i leak sometimes just on my own and it gets all over my bra and i have to change or wear breast pads. its gross lol.
