Mother’s Health During Pregnancy Week 31

Brought to you by
Pregnancy Week 31

Have you noticed? Is there any leakage from your breasts? This is called colostrum, or “premilk.” You can place nursing pads in your bra to absorb this fluid, but you should avoid extracting colostrum or any milk out of your breasts at this time, as nipple stimulation can cause contractions. Even if you don't see anything, your breasts are making colostrum, and you also may find that your bra is fitting a little more snugly than usual. You might want to get a nursing bra, but be sure to get one a size larger than you need now. Trust me; you'll be thankful for the room later.

    I have colostrum since month 4

  2. Marilyn says:

    I only leak a little bit and then it dries up and stops. It’s weird.

  3. Anber says:

    I haven’t had leaking boobs but had dried up colostrum since month 4; I am now 7 months pregnant

  4. emi285 says:

    I’ve been dealing with leaky boobs since last month; the doctor told me this was normal since I breastfed all of the four children before this baby.

  5. emi285 says:

    Wait to pump until the baby is born, you don’t want your milk coming in fully yet as the baby is going to need the colostrum first!

  6. KellyP says:

    If I start leaking colostrum at 31 weeks should I start pumping or just wait till the baby is born?

  7. Anna says:

    I think I start seeing colostrum…
