so, I keep hearing from some people that nursing while pregant can be dangerous "under certain conditions".

So, what are those conditions? How would I know if I'm "at risk" this early on and before I begin dr. visits?

tia!!

The pain's back en force! Ouch! Makes me wonder if it's how nature tells us to wean, lol. Well, nature, I'm well-nourished enough that I don't need to, so *blows razz*!

Those conditions are when you're a risk for preterm labor.

That or you have an underlying medical condition that needs to be dealt with, but you would already know that. I weaned my 1st DD at 44 months when pregnant with the twins. At 12 weeks I was already having contractions when she nursed, and I knew it wouldn't pay to keep it up. My milk had gone anyway, so it was a mutual agreement and not traumatic. I am very nervous about the boys, though. They are only 19 months, and not even CLOSE to being ready to wean. I am working on night weaning, though.

DS, 23mos, is still nursing. The sensitivity is beyond irritating. I desperately hope he cuts back soon; he's been nursing 4x/night lately. I think my milk supply is dwindling a bit, as he was really thirsty for other drinks yesterday.

I'm glad to say nursing hasn't been painful yet! Good thing because DS (almost 2) still nurses a lot and I'm quite sure he won't be weaning during this pregnancy. My DS (3 1/2) is still nursing a bit too.

(Knock on wood!)

Still nursing a 2 yr old here. It hasn't started hurting yet. But he nurses All.The.Time.--so we'll know when the milk dries up! I was tandem nursed with my sister as a child so I'd like to try it.

I nursed until I was 3 months along, my perinatologist said that a women should only nurse up to 5 months of pregnancy. The first month my breasts were tender while nursing but it went away.

well, I just discovered today that I'm pregnant, though I must say, the fact that there has been piercing pain everytime ds (2 1/2) nurses could have told me that before I took the test.

I remember now what it was like when I got pregnant with ds and how my nipples ached all the time....and there was no babe eagerly nursing on them then. The pain is so intense, I don't know how I'm going to handle it.

I don't want to cut him off, he hasn't responded well to cutbacks I've tried to make in the past and I really wanted weaning to be a gentle, gradual and peaceful process.

But this!!! It's been torture and it's only been a couple of days.

Same here, although DD is only 10mo. I kept thinking she was biting me before I tested, but she never bites... Although at the time I didn't connect the two. Now I'm going "Oohhhh!"

She seems to be wanting to nurse MORE lately. I dunno if it tastes different or she gets more or what, but it's... a little annoying.

My guy, who will be 3 in July is still nursing a few times per day and 2-3 times at night.

So far, I've not noticed much change, other than sometimes it's a little painful and most of the time I feel kind of empty - like my supply has lessened.

I am nursing my 6.5 month olds daughter, I too thought she was biting recently could have been nipple sensitivity due to pregnancy. I am very nervous about losing my supply, since my supply dropped so quickly with DD2 and DD3. I am looking into More Milk two tincture or some other methods of increasing supply for my girl. She hasn't been taking bottles at all, and we just started trying any solids at all so I really want to keep up my supply as long as possible.
