I am still absorbing the fact that I'm pregnant again.
No one, and I do mean no one, besides my husband knows yet...but MDC DDC's were such a good support for me last time, I figured it was worth showing up here.
I have two girls, 3 1/2 and 8 months (yeah, oops). I'm due 10/2. My 8 month old still nurses every 4-6 hrs during the day and night. She's on solids as well, about 3x a day.
My 3 1/2 yr old nursed until I was 25 weeks pregnant w/ #2...I am PRAYING my milk supply holds out that long. I really want to nurse #2 longer and at this point (I may decide I am absolutely crazy later), I would even tandem nurse if she'll keep it up...she's a very impatient little nursling though, so we'll see how that goes.
If my milk supply does evaporate around 20-25 weeks like it did w/ pregnany #2, I am not sure what to do. She'll only be...13 months (at most) and I am not willing to put her on formula...I don't know what I'll do. Raw milk? I'm w/ you tanyab, the thought of depriving her of breastmilk makes me really sad! I feel most conflicted about this pregnancy because of her age, I feel like I'm giving her the short end of the stick, while her big sister got 2 1/2 years of breastfeeding on demand.
I'm not even 4 weeks and have no breast tenderness...I didn't have it with my last pg either, so I'm not sure that will develop. I do feel some mild contractions after she nurses for a long stint though...I did experience that last time and it never had any long term effects.
