This is the first time I've ever had pink-streaked CM, and it's been happening for a couple days now...anyone have any idea what that could mean??

Hi, i joined awhile back but didn't post much; i'd like to rejoin if i may. i'm 40 with a daughter 2 years 9 months old. she nurses quite a bit. i don't keep count. overnight maybe once or twice, morning for hunger, late morning for boredom sometimes, small bumps and whatnots, comfort nurses, nurses before nap, nurses after nap, ditto the morning for the afternoon, and then nurses before bed.
tonight she told me "empty" and it took me by shock. i am in the 2ww, af should be here by thursday at the latest. i told her to keep nursing anyway and it will come back. she actually told me "pump." i told her that's a good idea and i'll do it tomorrow (we were just nursing to sleep).
so i don't know if that means a) she nursed so much earlier this evening that she used it all up (she did a marathon nursing session for like an hour and a half) b) i'm premenstrual and therefore at "low tide" in terms of milk quantity or c) i'm pregnant.
which brings me to a question: do you all hope to keep nursing when you do get pregnant? i do. i'd welcome any advice from people who kept their kiddos on the breast (didn't wean) while pregnant-- what's the secret to keeping them interested if the milk dries up?
and i'm aware that it can be painful to the mom to nurse while pregnant. assuming i can "take the pain" what can i do if/when i'm pregnant to allow DD to keep going if she wants to? ie., tonight after the "empty" comment, i went downstairs and ate a bunch of oatmeal...
Is it Ok to try Maca while breastfeeding? I had heard it balances your hormones and helps with libido. I thought I wouold give it a try. Anyone else here on it ?
