I was just wondering when I should be expecting my br___ts to start leaking?? I'm only 20 weeks now but I'm sure I need to plan ahead with pads and what not...dont want to be caught without that c__p when I really need it, if you know what I mean? lol =)

It really depends. Some women don't leak at all until their baby is born, others it starts as early as 15 weeks. Your best bet if you don't want to be caught soaked (possibly) is to put a pair of b___stpads in your purse so you'll always have them with you. I'm 28 weeks and only have leaking issues at night.... :o)

I didn't start leaking until after the birth of my baby, but somewhere around 5-6 months I would find a dried crust of colostrum on my left nipple sometimes. It never was enough to even wet my shirt, but it puzzled me at first until I realized what was going on. Everybody is different, and each pregnancy is different. Oddly enough, I produce about twice as much milk from my left side than my right (I'm still nursing and just waiting for that huge upswing in my supply!). But just keep a set of nursing pads around in case you need them. I found I preferred the Lansinoh or Medela disposables, purchased anywhere, or the Lana wool or hemp ones from cottonbabies.com.
