I just need some mama hugs. My younger DD is just shy of 3.5 yrs. She loves her nursies and they were still very much a part of her every day. I am currently pregnant with my 3rd. I had a significant bleeding episode at 8 weeks and was diagnosed with a subchorionic hemorrhage (part of my placenta tore away from my uterus and resulted in a bleed). I was given some restrictions but was told that I could continue nursing. Unfortunately, I had a bigger bleed at 15 weeks. I now have 2 SCHs and the first has grown larger. I was put on complete bed rest and told that I had to stop nursing immediately because the mild uterine contractions caused by nursing can lead to continued shearing off of my placenta.

When I told DD, it broke my heart. She's been exerting such self-control and not asking to nurse 99% of the time. Occasionally, she cries for nursies in the wee hours of the morning, and she talks about when I get healthy and the baby comes, they'll share nursies together. I just tell her that's a great idea and try not to cry....maybe she will (if she remembers how). It just makes me feel so sad, like I've stolen something so precious from her

sending hug to you! I just wanted to sympathize with SCH part. I only have one LO (1 yr old) but when I was preg with him, I had SCH, 3 major bleeding episodes, and slight continuous bleeding from week 10-18, not fun! I wasnt put on bed rest, but pretty much put myselt there. I am so glad that after a very worrisome preg (IVF, then SCH), I am finally able to feel the joy of ds this year!! Your little girl is so blessed and fortunate to have had such a nice long time of nursing!! And just know how wonderful it will be when new babe arrives and she can return!

aw mama

I'd try not to worry though, she'll remember just fine. My LO weaned at 2 years old and when his little bro was born about 10 months later he has the odd nurse every now and then. It felt a bit funny at first! but he didn't seem to have any problem. He's now 3.5 and every now and then if he has a bad dream or anything he has a quick nurse.

Just keep telling your Dd what a big strong brave girl she is and what a great big sister she's being because she's keeping the baby safe. And as soon as the baby is here she can have nursies again.

I'm just adding some more hugs. I don't have any experience with SCH or bedrest but I know you are brave and I hope everything turns out well.

That sounds so hard. I hope that the rest of your pregnancy is healthy and uneventful!
