Hi! My name is Rachel and we are expecting baby#5 My due date is March 21 unless they change it. I have to have a c-section because they said that since I have already had three it would be safer. We are having a girl, which will be our fourth girl. My poor hubby and son :) Also we homeschool too!
Britannia8, Welcome. :) You may want to start a separate thread on your PUPPP and the nursing. I know we have LOTS of mamas nursing through pregnancy! :)
I have no personal experience with PUPPP, but I nursed my 2 1/2 year old throughout my entire second pregnancy. And like you said, it HURT!!!! The only way I was able to cope and continue nursing was to night wean and drastically cut nursing down to two minutes/side for each nursing session. I also limited the number of nursing sessions/day with A LOT of distraction. During those two minutes, It felt like knives were coming out of my nipples, so I practiced my relaxation and deep breathing for labor at that time. After the baby was born, DD1 started nursing like a newborn again, which helped with my oversupply issues. She did that for about a week or two and I slowly started with the distraction again and it went back to a more reasonable few times/day.
