Hey BGers Im a little worried because I think i should be leaking colostrum or my boobs should be bigger by now! I am 34 weeks almost along, but no none of this has happnsed i feel the same as 22 weeks! I get really slight braxton hicks I feel like babe has dropped I know my body is preparing for birth but I'm not getting any diffrences in the brest department. I'm only worried because I know my mom didn't breastfeed me she said it was bc of stress. I'm hoping I'm able to but I'd really like some insight from momma's who've been there to stop these worries. Thanks alot guys!! xoxo <3
relax. your milk comes after the baby and leaky boobs when pregnant is no indication on if you will or will not be able to breastfeed. Lots of women never leak. My boobs don't' grow much. But I have bigger boobs to start with. I nursed my daughter for 11 and half months. They have not grown with with one.
I didn't leak with my oldest though DH likes to play with my nipples during sex and at one point he said stuff was coming out so he stopped doing that lol. With my second,my oldest had weaned himself only 3 months before so I don't think my milk production stopped all the way but i never leaked either.
Either way, don't worry about it because once your baby is here that is the signal your body needs to start making it!
Thank you guys!! I wasn't sure I guess i thought you atleast should get bigger boobs but it all makes sense what you guys are saying. It might not have worked for my mom but im healthy & not stressing. Thanks again momma's!! now i can go home & sleep soundly tonight! Haha <3 This site is so helpful!! <3
