This is my first time posting/blogging...... EVER! Honestly, I did not think that they could throw anything new at me since I had 4 girls already when I found out I was pregnant. Twins is definitely something new. I have nursed through previous pregnancies, but am getting conflicting information about nursing when pregnant with twins. I have weaned my 3-and-1/2-year-old by telling her she can have as much mama milk as she likes after the twins come (really did not want to tell her she could not nurse because of the twins.....a little worried she will take me up on it when they get here). I simply do not have the heart to wean my 13-month-old. She is easily distracted during the day nursing before naps and when hurt, etc., but nurses at least 3-5 times each night. We just started putting her in the co-sleeper attached to the bed and that has actually lowered her amount of nursing, but she still clearly loves it (as do I...). I have no history of early labor. I usually go between 2 and 10 days late. My OB seems fairly laid back about me nursing, so far. I am about 17 weeks pregnant (and look about 6 months). I would love to hear from someone who did nurse while pregnant with twins. Any information would be helpful...
