I am 14 weeks along with my twins and my dd just turned 1 and is still nursing. There is still milk at this point, although I feel the supply is decreasing despite my best efforts at staying hydrated and well-nourished. I have no intention of weaning her just because I'm pregnant with twins. BUT, if she decides to wean herself that would be fine with me! If she does wean and wants to come back after the babies are here, I will accept her with open arms so as to not reject her-- which I feel could cause her to harbor resentment or shake her confidence. I am preparing myself for several months of just nursing, nursing, nursing and not too much else. I tell myself that it is a temporary thing and that I WILL get my life back someday! But in the meanwhile, I am going to allow myself to make those few precious months of breastfeeding all of my babies the main priority in my life-- organize ahead of time so that only minimal cleaning needs to be done regularly and accept help with housework, enjoy dh's cooking (because I know he secretly is a great cook!), and treat myself well and enjoy it all-- when those days are done I want to have great memories of it.
