I've noticed that I'm feeling let down tingling in my breasts almost once a day lately and when I checked, I was able to squeeze some clearish "milk" from my nipples. I don't remember having milk this early last time around! I'm also noticing dried milk in my bras, which must be from the times I feel that let down! Crazy! Anyone else?? I'm 18 weeks.

I'm still nursing 3-4 times in a 24-hour period. I don't know how much milk she's getting but I know she's getting SOME because sometimes when she pops off I can see milk in her mouth.

Since I'm 17 weeks, not sure if that means I'm not going to lose it at all, or that I lost it and it came back, or that I will lose it and it will come back.

Last pregnancy, I had no milk at all until after the birth, then I had colostrum, then milk after 2-3 days.

No milk yet, but my boobs are getting so big that ds who has been weaned for seven months has started forgetting he's weaned and his hand absently tries to pull my shirt down sometimes. In the bath the other day he almost opened his mouth and turned around to latch on, then he remembered he doesn't nurse any more. I don't know if it's the size or if he can somehow smell the milk comming in.

18 weeks and just noticed it yesterday too...

Never had it before either of my other kids were born but I guess every pregnancy is different!

Not yet. I had some early with Reya but don't remember exactly when. For the past year or 2 I generally get a tiny bit with pms, so it is a little weird that I *don't* have any.
