I started producing some colostrum around 7/8 months. I could squeeze a little bit out of my nipple after a shower. I rubbed the colostrum over the nipples to condition them for baby. My milk came in 4 days after birth. Milk will only come in with frequent suction from baby and making sure you are getting tons of water and nutrition. See my VIP site for tips on beginning to breastfeed.
well im 13 weeks my breasts have already grew 2 cup sizes and they still hurt my milk never fully went away from my last child so i think im just gonna be huge in that area and im still producing some milk which is turning to colostrum already but ive only heard this is normal for mulitple children
Starting at around 8 weeks, your breasts begin to get bigger, and they’ll continue to grow throughout your pregnancy. It’s common to go up a cup size or two, especially if it’s your first baby. Your breasts may feel itchy as the skin stretches, and you may even develop stretch marks on them(like mine did w/ baby #1).
You may be able to see veins under the skin of your breasts, and you may find that your nipples are getting bigger and darker. After the first few months, your areolas — the pigmented circles around your nipples — will also be bigger and darker.
You may not have noticed the little bumps on your areolas before. But now these bumps, which are a type of oil-producing gland called Montgomery’s tubercles, may become much more pronounced. Your breasts go through these changes in preparation for nursing your baby.
Around your third month of pregnancy, your breasts start producing colostrum, the special milk your baby will get when he first starts nursing. During the last few months of pregnancy, you may begin to leak a small amount of this thick yellowish substance, although some women start to leak earlier and some never leak at all.
After giving birth your baby will drink the colostrum until day 3 when your milk comes in.
my didn’t get big until after I deliverd my babies my 1st 2 pregnancies but I am 34 weeks with my 3rd and they are bigger. So I think it all depends on your body. You will produce the milk right after you have her but some women have something called colostrum leaking from your breasts as you get closer to delivery.
I believe I read that around week 14 is when we start to produce milk. When your breasts start to get bigger and/or leak is entirely individual. My breasts growing was one of my first signs that I was pregnant – I noticed it 2 weeks before my missed period! But that said, I haven’t started leaking or anything yet and I’m 29 weeks.
they get bigger during the course of the pregnancy, and you dont produce real milk until the placenta is removed at birth, you make colostrum until then. some women leak and need breast pads, some dont. i leaked the first time at this stage (28 weeks) but im not yet this time
Everyone is different, but my breasts started getting bigger as soon as I got prego, You don’t produce milk until right after you deliver your baby, actually after you give birth to the plecenta, the third stage of labor. It takes some women up to two or three days after birth for their milk to come in. You will know they will be rock hard, lol. But I will tell you your aerola will increase in size thru out the pregnancy and will get very dark. Just like the veins from the excess blood supply. I’m 27 weeks and have gone up two cup sizes, have not noticed any colostrum or leakage yet:)
My breasts starting getting HUGE in the first few months with my first two but just started a few weeks ago here with my third (right now I’m 19weeks) and they have grown 2cups so far. Some woman leak colostrum throughout pregnancy and other don’t but the milk starts coming in a few days after your nursing! Best of luck and enjoy!
Everyone is different from my experience i noticed more of a difference near the end of the pregnancy ie – breasts getting bigger and slight leakage from my nipples but many people can leak alot sooner than this…. hind milk comes through after the baby latches on and takes the foremilk…. as everyone has mentioned the colostrum.
