He's still nursing quite a bit. He nurses several times a day unless we are out and about a lot and he nurses 1-3 times a night. It feels to me a lot of times like he's not getting any milk and is just nursing comfort. I don't mind this. It sure is a lot easier than listening to a screaming toddler.

I've read about milk drying up while pregnant and am wondering when that usually happens and how one would know. I do still feel a let down eventually if he nurses long enough and I can tell by the way his swallowing changes that he's getting milk so I know I still have some. Maybe it's becoming less and harder to get.

I don't think there is a time when it usually happens. It seems to happen at different points for everyone. With my singleton pg I was able to maintain milk until the third tri when my colostrum came in. With my twin pg though I dried up within the first couple months. I always just went by how much swallowing was going on.
