Breast leakage: Yes, this is normal. After a couple of prior pregnancies your body gets more efficient at managing all the changes that go on in pregnancy.

If it is there, it is normal to leak. ...Read more

7 months pregnant and breasts have been leaking colostrum, third baby, nipples stinging really bad. Why?
Body preparing: Congrats on baby number 3! your body has "been there, done that" before, and so knows a baby is soon to come and is now beginning to prepare for what happens after birth, including early milk production and toughing of the nipples. This time it recognizes the pattern, and so these type of changes occur earlier in subsequent pregnancies. Make sure you are getting plenty of rest to prepare for birth. ...Read more

Please consult your Obstetrician. ...Read more

Take a test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more
