Just took a test a few hours ago. I'm due mid-April with my second. My first daughter is 10 months old. This is going to take a little while to get used to!!
Thanks. It's not really the best time, but when is it ever? We'll manage somehow. I just hope my milk doesn't dry up. I realllllllllllllllly, really, really don't want my daughter to wean. I want to tandem nurse. And I'm worried about time. Just how do you divide the time? Every waking hour is devoted to my daughter, so how do I go from that to having to devote so much time to a newborn? I don't want my daughter to feel abandoned, the thought of that breaks my heart.
Oops.
I just found out I'm pregnant with my 2nd. My daughter is 10 months and still gets most of her calories through nursing. I need some positive stories, things like your milk didn't dry up and your baby/child didn't wean and everything was just peachy keen (sorry for the rhyme). Please? I don't want to take the boobie milk away from my daughter (if it were to dry up). :
I had never really thought of it as an epiphany before, maybe it was. Whether it was an, "A ha!" moment or not, it did seem a little weird to me. So whether it was just that he was surprised to see a woman breastfeeding and lacked social skills or he's some sort of breastfeeding fetishist, I guess I'll never know. I don't think I've seen him around since. I guess I can hope that I've taught him something, though! Thanks for your replies.
I was born in 86 and nursed for 18 months :
This happened several months ago, but I still think of it from time to time and can't quite figure out if I should take it as creepy or as a compliment. I was sitting on a bench in an indoor shopping center, nursing my daughter. A middle-aged man walked in front of me, and then turned back and stood behind the bench (trying to get a better view? I don't know). He said, "Excuse me, are your breastfeeding?" I turned back to look at him and said, "Yes." He went on to say,...
Uh-oh! Though, I suppose, they really could have done worse. At least hair grows back! My daughter nurses or naps beside me while I'm lazing around on MDC.

Well, I don't know if there's some other secret (if there is, please somebody tell me) but I spend quite a long time shaking things, beating things, and rubbing things together to get them to fluff back up.
Definitely the worry. Worry, worry, and more worry. I have problems with anxiety as well. As soon as I knew I was pregnant, I worried. Worried about miscarriage, worried about stillbirth, worried about SIDS, worried about choking, worried about illnesses, worried that I might be making the wrong decisions, worried she'll die, worried I'll die and leave her motherless... on and on and on. Lack of sleep and time to myself. I find it a bit draining to be on at all times....
