Im 18 weeks today and my breasts have been leaking for about 2 weeks.. mostly right after i shower.. my aunt said this actually might be a good thing because if you plan on breast feeding it could be a sign that your milk will come in earlier. good luck

Completely normal. I don't think that it's a sign you would be able to breastfeed well. This is only colostrum. Some women produce more colostrum than others. Some women produce more colostrum than milk. You won't be able to tell until your milk comes in (a few days after delivery).

Showers do make them leak more. It's the warmth.

It is normal to leak any time during pregnancy. Your hormones control this.
