It is probably just colustrum which is what you produce before you get your milk in after the delivery. You could leak the rest or you might find you leak when you put pressure on your boobs. They sell the nursing pads which are thin and will fit right inside the bra so you don't get any embarrassing leaking on your clothes. I know this might sound crazy but if you squeeze athe nipple it is possible you will see what your leaking. The colostrum is very thin watery maybe slightly brownish or so in color. I wouldn't worry about a thing.GL

yup im thinking colostrum, i started leaking with dd about 16 weeks and had to use breast pads all through my pregnancy, good thing is though i think it means ur have a good milk supply if you plan to bf, i had a very good milk supply after dd was born :) its normal! u wait till the milk comes in after ur baby is born lol! x

they sell lanolin cream well looks more like a jelly it goes on sore nips :) and you can breast feed even with it on . it was a Lifesaver for me  but yeah you are probley getting colustrum and that is good you will probley have a good milk supply :)

I am over 17 weeks now I noticed the same thing a week ago. Mine aren't leaking too bad though. My nipples were sore when I first got pregnant, that got better but now they're back to being sore again. I'm sure this is normal. I just never noticed these things when I was pregnant 20 years ago. It seems now I notice every little thing.

Another thing you might want to try is to walk around either without a bra or just topless. My midwife suggested this to me, in addition to the lanolin cream and it worked really well.

I agree with the others though, sounds very normal to be leaking. I started to at 25 weeks, and had a really good supply. How come you didn't think you'd be able to BF?

Oh good!!! My midwife told me that's a good sign of a good milk production!!!! :) nothing wrong with that!! You'll probably have it till the end but some don't get it till later some sooner! totally normal and good too!

Clysta, Thanks for the info I actually thut I wouldn't cuz I have a cyst that's been there for many yrs lol plus I'v already had prolactin issues in the past. in addition to having family history (Mother) of not being able to BF past 4 months I really hope I get the chance to breastfeed my baby read a lot about how helpful it is to their growth.

Thanks for the advice Ladies, I'm getting more n more excited althu DH doesn't think its much fun haha he started calling me "Mummy" a LOT more haha

Aww Hala, at least if you are able to breastfeed for a short amount of time, whether it be 4 months...or 4 weeks, it's better than not being able to at all. Look at this as a good sign :)
