Throughout my whole pregnancy, my breasts have stayed the same size, and i am 37 weeks prego and I'm not lactating at all.. Shouldn't I be lactating or leaking by now? and Shouldn't my breasts be bigger? I'm worried i wont be able to breastfeed when she's born. Any advice?

Breast change/leaking of colostrom during pregnancy has NOTHING to do with milk production. Please don't stress! I am currently nursing both my 18 month old and 3 month old daughters, and even though my breasts didn't change/I never leaked during either of my pregnancies, I have milk enough for them and to donate besides.

My boobs stayed the same size and I breast feed my 4 month old daughter. You will be fine. Use a pump if you don't start producing enough. It helps!
