2nd Trimester

Breast leakage...

I am 22 weeks and my left breast has started leaking clear fluid today. Is that pretty normal even though I am not very far along? I keep hearing they will leak between 30-38 weeks?

Re: Breast leakage...

  • Mine started last night. I think its a normal. And I've read some women can have it during the first trimester. I think as the other symptoms, it varies from pregnant woman to pregnant woman.

    But be careful, if you read my post about it...my whole front of my shirt was covered last night...ugh. So I went and bough some lasinoth breast pads.

  • Yes, it happens.  Mine have been leaking enough to crust over for weeks now.  I am still waiting for the flood gates to open.
  • lol, I have been cleaning house all day and just wearing a sports bra, and I was like what did I spill on myself? And so I rubbed it with a towel and about 5 minutes later.. wa lah.. more.. then it kinda dawned on me that I wasn't a crazy cluts, that my boobs were leaking! lol
  • its normal.. Just more popular later in pregnancy.. Im 18 weeks preggy with my first child and my left breast was leaking when I was just 12 weeks.

  • Yep. Mine have been leaking since 17 weeks. I wear breast pads daily, and have to drain them every night or else my nips itch. Sometimes it shoots out like a squirt gun.
  • so its okay if they havent started yet. im going on my 25th week and havent had any leaking yet!

  • Yep, normal...I had to ask my dr.  I started leaking at 21 wks. and also read that it was only common in the 3rd tri.  The dr. said it's perfectly fine and it happens at different stages for different women.  She said a tighter fitting bra may alleviate it some, otherwise to wear pads.  I'm only having leaking at night when braless so I guess I'll have to deal or go get a sleeping bra.

  • I have started leaking already as well, and I asked my doctor about it. Like pp said, she said its completely normal and actually a good sign that I shouldn't have any trouble at all bfeeding. HTH!!

  • I just asked my doctor today about this and its normal. I was leaking at 2 weeks! It never really stopped after my first even though I never breast fed.

    ooo..that's good to know!  I just noticed some the other day, and today I read a little bit on it...they suggested nursing pads or cut up panty liners to be placed in your bra, if needed.
