Hi all,<br><br>
I just wanted to ask if anyone has experienced this?<br>
Yesterday in the afternoon while coming home from the park as I was riding in our minivan I felt like I was getting ready to have a letdown. I have had 3 other kids and never felt this in the other PG's. Also last night the braxton hicks felt a little different and kept going straight through the morning (not stopping how they usually do after and hour or two). Could these mean labor is near?<br><br>
TIA<br>

I don't know about labor being near... But my breasts have been leaking during this twin pregnancy since like 17 weeks!!! It's the weirdest thing. I constantly smell like milk, too, and my boobs are HOT. I haven't felt letdown approaching, but I'm only 26 weeks along, so maybe I'm doomed for that soon, haha! I would hate to waste all that nice milk, though.

I'm also 36 weeks and have started having that feeling along with the braxton-hicks. I have no idea if it means labor is near, though.

Yes, yes, yes! I have been feeling like I'm about to let down too and I'm 38 weeks, but it started a few weeks ago. I also get an intense burning in my nipples that feels like it would be relieved if I had a baby to nurse.

I'm only 22 weeks, and yesterday I thought for sure I'd look down and find the front of my shirt soaked with milk. I was in a fabric store and could hear a little baby somewhere else in the store making those little hungry noises ... not really crying or fussing, eh, I can't explain it ... but *immediately* my breasts got hot and tingly and I just could not tune out those little baby noises. I haven't nursed a baby in over 3 years, it's amazing that my body still responded so strongly.

My MW says more than 4 BH in an hour could be pre-term labor. She had me lay down for an hour and drink a large glass of water, which stopped them for me. Guess in my case it was dehydration. You might ask your HCP if they feel this is problematic or not.<br><br>
And yes, I have been having the letdown thing too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

It happend to me also at Xmas I had barrowed a night gown (of course) and one of my breasts leaked. My whole husbands family found out <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: ! I then babysat for a friend of mine. When her little girl would cry or nurse from her mom I had let down. But I've been leaking(mostly at night) since xmas. I talked to lactation con. and she said that it was normal that some people just leak more than others. Hope this helps!

I'm 33 wks<br>
they even feel *full* sometimes and that old tingly sensation...like I have to nurse.. and the letdown feeling....sometimes they feel a lil stuck to my bra.<br>
this did not happen with my first pregnancy, I just hope its a sign that breastfeeding will be a breeze <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Around 33 weeks my nipples still felt a little sticky in my bra but at around 35 weeks it stopped happening. Now I look at them and they really seem full. Maybe I will go soon <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
