Yeah I'm like that, I think its great when ppl breastfeed in public but I think I'd be so embarrassed! xxx

your actual milk comes in about 3 days after birth - if you leak it could be an overflow of colostrum (the antibody etc bit baby gets for the first 3 days).
some ladies leak other dont - by 38 weeks I couldnt hear a baby cry without leaking!

Hi! I'm 38+4 and haven't leaked at all yet. I didn't leak in first pregnancy either, and I went on to breastfeed my son for 20 months. Breastfeeding in public is fine. I always used to find a quiet corner to give me a bit of privacy. The only time I felt a bit embarrrassed was when strangers would come up to me and start talking about the baby, whilst I was sat there with my boob out. Luckily, I just got on with it. XXX

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
