Hi Rebecca! Welcome and congrats!
My 3 yr old (dd) nursed through my 2 yr old's (ds) pg and for over a year and a half after.
He was born when she was 20 months. Fortunately by the time my supply diminished as is normal she was no longer nursing for nutrition so much as for comfort. I don't know about the safety of any of the milk increasing herbs/meds and pg. Honestly, I just don't worry about it, it's just part of nature. If your cutie continues to nurse regularly you'll continue to produce milk, though towards the middle of the pg it could be very little. DD didn't seem to mind that lack of milk, she continued to swallow while nursing just not as often as before and it didn't seem to bother her. Some kids will stop nursing during pg and begin again once the baby is born. I've heard the taste of milk changes during pg, so that can also be a factor that we have no control over. My best advice, and it's cheap so take it as you like
, is relax and go with the flow. If you stress about your milk, both your milk and your children will be affected.
DS is 'of course' still nursing so I'm in your shoes again.
It was so funny with dd, at 28 weeks she came off the breast and said, "MMMmmmm YUMMY!" My colostrum had come in!
I continued to make colostrum through delivery and Koen got the usual 2-3 days of colostrom too! Just has nature designed it!
How cool is that?! Oh and Gretchen gained about 8-9 pounds in those 2 1/2 months! LOL
There are several of us Marchies that are nursing and pg but I don't know how many have already done it.
I'm sure they'll speak up.
Best of luck to you and I look forward to getting to know you!
Ok... must find coffee... I just woke up from 9 hours of sleep and feel like I only slept maybe 3!
