I had heard from many older women that nursing while pregnant was a big no-no. I have heard many mothers lament over switching to formula for their little ones because they became pregnant. I know that nursing is taxing on the body. I know that being pregnant is taxing on the body. So, two is too many?
We found out that the V household is expecting another little one at the end of this year. I had an idea, since I had been dizzy and tired for a few days. I had even passed out once, due to getting out of bed too quickly and bounding down our hallway. I collapsed in front of our study door (where my husband was) and was out for no more than a second or two- but that had never happened before so I knew something was up. Once we knew I was expecting I got some great prenatals and since then have had no issues with dizziness. (Must have needed iron?)
I am still nursing Little W in the morning and around 7pm. The morning time is when she really likes it. I have been keeping with the evening one although she lately has been only nursing for a few minutes and then is ready to go play again. I think we will be dropping that one this week or next- all from her lack of interest. So yes, I am nursing and pregnant. As long as I continue to eat well, get sufficient sleep, and take a nice prenatal vitamin to give me that iron, I see no reason to quit- especially when Little W is going to be down to once a day.
I have noticed an added sensitivity on my part. Thankfully my daughter is a pro and I feel discomfort only for a second in the beginning. I have read that your milk changes flavor when you are expecting again, but if that is the case she does not seem to mind one bit. Other than that I can tell no difference.
Here is a site I found helpful when questioning my continued nursing.
Hopefully this will also explain the lack of new content on the site. When the babe sleeps, I go down for a nap as well!
