Is this normal?

Ok, DJ weaned himself in January when he was about 19 months. I was already pregnant at the time and had been pretty much dry for a while. When I was pregnant with DJ, I could express a little bit of colustrum towards the end, but that was all. I'm now 28 weeks and leaking like I did when DJ was a newborn! I'm engorged and leaky and I swear I had a letdown this morning! Is this normal for the second time? I'm supposed to go for another three months like this? Or should I be concerned? I started having contractions at 23 weeks and my midwife said that my cervix was a little thinner than she'd like but was not dilating at all so to get as much rest as possible (with a toddler!) and take care of myself and just watch out for any signs that things were progressing. I've still been having contractions for the past several weeks (not BH...real contractions...yippee) but should I take this milk thing as a sign that my body is getting ready or is it normal?

Don't know. I had quite a bit of leakage with my first/only, but nothing like you're talking. I'd guess you just didn't totally dry up and then something wonky happened with the hormones (the story of pg) and upped your production. Good luck! I'd definitely call your MW though and find out!

Just call your midwife since your cervix is a little thinner and you were havingcontractions. But my friend said with her 3rd pregnancy, she had leaking while pregnant.

As far as the contractions, that would concern me. You need checked out for that.

As far as the milk, I don't know that that's a sign... I leaked like crazy w/both pregnancies. I remember waking up while preggo w/DS#1 thinking OMG my water broke... AND THEN REALIZED it was my upper half that was wet - my boobs just exploded that night LOL
