when does your milk come in?

I can't remember when my breasts start to produce & leak colostrum. I'm feeling like mine are getting heavy & sore, possibly a little warm. I've had some pains & " tingling" in them the last week as well. I am almost 32 weeks.

I've had it since about 32 weeks and I'm 35 weeks tomorrow... everyone's different, some don't produce any until after delivery...

Wanna hear something crazy? My oldest is about to be 9. I started leaking when I was about 20wks with her. Not the crazy part. Here ut is. I have three kids now 9 6 and 3 and since I was 20 wks with the first one I never stopped leaking. But I couldn't produce enough to breastfeed for more than a couple weeks. If I squeeze nip a bit will come out! Still. Lol

Katcrossing, that is so insane! I breastfed my son, he's 10, but my daughter needed lactose free formula so it's been basically 10 years since I knew any of this, add baby brain to the mix & I can't remember a thing! Lol. But I am pretty sure this feeling is my milk, or colostrum or whatnot coming in!
