This is my concern, I am currently 34 years old, breastfeeding my 20 month old (1/xday for bedtime) and now pregnant with my 2nd baby.  I have a history of low progesterone and am concerned that my age (30's) and my history of low progesterone, along with nursing can lead to a miscarriage.  Any mom's in your 30's have a successful pregnancy while nursing?

I was your age when I was pregnant with my second. I nursed my first right through it. At around the 7th month of the pregnancy, he weaned himself.

It's worth having your progesterone tested if you're worried.  You could do a progesterone suppository.  I have PCOS and have been put on progesterone by my RE from about a week after ovulation to about 10 weeks pregnant as a precautionary measure with all 3 of my pregnancies.  FWIW, I'm 31yrs old, 14 weeks pregnant, and nursing my 31 month old DD.

I've bf'ed into or through most of my pregnancies with no issues. Since turning 30 I've had 1 miscarriage which I donot believe was related to bf. I am currently 25 weeks pregnant and nursed to a later point in this pregnancy than when I lost the other one.

I nursed through pregnancies at 35 (with a very committed nursling) and 39 (with a more nonchalant nursling) with no issues at all.  Hope you have the same kind of luck!
