I grew a full cup-size in just a few weeks & my nipples are already leaking droplets of colostrum. I'm only 20 wks...is this normal? If not, what does it mean?<br><br>
PS-My grandma said this wasn't normal...she makes me worry for no reason most of the time tho.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/winner.jpg" style="border:0px solid;" title="BFSymbol">

Totally normal! I just started leaking a bit of colostrum too, and my breasts are not only bigger, but perkier! (Amazing after almost 9 years of breastfeeding!)

I'll chime is and say normal.<br><br>
My babe is nursing much less lately so I had kind of 'shrunken'. Then I was surprised at how much bigger, 'weighted' and fuller I suddenly feel.

For me, that has been a totally normal occurrence. With my first pregnancy, and with this one. This time around, though, I'm about a month earlier. I love preggo boobies. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Three cheers to full perky and firm breasts after breastfeeding. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbsup"> It startled me my first pregnancy, the whole drippy nipple thing, but this time around I knew what was going on. I take it as a sign that my body knows what to do, which is really comforting when going the route of UP/UC.

I'd say its normal. I'm shocked at how big my boobs and belly have gotten in the past 3 weeks. I went from not having any stomach to this small basketball. My boobs are also very preggo looking. With my first pregnancy they got big right away but I've been nursing DD all along and so they seemed to be flat for the first trimester. Now that DD is nursing for all of 20 secs a day and my supply is dried up- wham- big boobs. HAHA
