    Well ladies as you might have seen I've got 3 days left till my lil one is due :dance:

    But I've heard several of my friends and family say that your not ready until your boobs start to leak (TMI) :oops:

    Is this true because mine hasn't leaked at all, in my pregnancy and am worried that he's going to stay put for longer. ? ? ? :think: :think:

    And I know you ladies are full of facts and useful tips & knowledge I thought you'd be able to help. :wink:

    Hmmm mine leaked a tiny bit from about 30 weeks, and I STILL went overdue! I've not heard of that being a sign before.

    Good luck and I hope your big day comes soon!

    mine did not leak before or after. My first was 1 day early and my second 6 days so not a sign for me I'm afraid. Good luck!!

    Mine never leaked at all before the birth (not a sign that you'll have problems feeding either as alex went straight on the boob and never had any problems!)

    i have never had any problems with unwanted leaks since the birth either.

    good luck hope babes makes an appearnance soon

    Mine were leaking with Zack from 4 months onwards :?
    They were like taps that you couldnt turn off... dont think its a sign tho.
    Zack was 2 weeks over due, had to have him induced because I couldnt wait to see him lol selfish I know.

    Hi

    I always thought mine were leaking but in hindsight I don't think they were. Unfortunately I couldn't breast feed so all I had after Isaac's birth was very lumpy sore boobs for a day then nothing :(

    Good luck! I am so jealous! I can't wait to give birth again.

    Lou :)
