no, but they didn't with dd's pg either til after she was born. i recall being hooked up to the pump in the hours after her birth and marvelling about the tiny drop of colostrum that appeared they worked just fine after that though
Mine started leaking just a few drops a week or 2 ago. It's totally normal to not leak before hand, though. I didn't leak with DD until after her birth. I didn't leak with DS but did start making colostrum @ 36 weeks as DD was still nursing and suddenly picked up the pace at that point. She went from 2 daily nursing sessions that were 2 minutes long to asking all.the.time.
I am 32weeks and nothing here yet either. DS weaned in April and I have tried hand expressing, too. I remember noticing it after a hot shower when I was pg with DS... I'm guessing it was about now, or maybe earlier, but each pg is different, right?
I never leaked a drop through pregnancy and nursing my DD for almost 3 years. Some people just don't.
The closest I ever came was during engorgement after giving birth - my breats were hard as rocks, and there were white dots on my nipples where the ducts are, but still not one drop leaked. Couldn't hand express either.
What do you mean not working? Mine never did anything prior to giving birth last time (other than be sore in the first trimester) and I made milk a plenty. I'm not worried and am even thankful the boobs aren't up to any funny business.
I had a little moment of leakage in early July, and possibly once more, but that's it. I feel like they are just there now, but if last time is any measure, I'm glad they're not leaking yet! I leaked constantly last time after DD arrived, so I'm okay not having to wear a bra these days, as the extra contraptions for nursing are uncomfortable now. Hmmm. If they're uncomfortable now, uh-oh--that means I need to buy bigger nursing bras! Duhh to me!
