I have Kathy Kleinert's card ... here is the info on it:
She does not say what the two different numbers are for, just has them on the card. Congrats! And I hope you're able to find a way to have your homebirth!
As for the nursing ... DD1 weaned with some encouragement from me towards the end of the first trimester with dd2. She had just turned 2 when I got pregnant. It was so incredibly painful ... it felt like my nipples were being shredded with broken glass.
But, after a few weeks of not nursing, she asked to nurse. I reluctantly said okay ... I had felt ambivalent about pushing her to wean (although she wasn't a big nurser to begin with and she weaned without any issues). I had always wanted her to wean on her own terms, though. Well, she latched, sucked a few times, then immediately unlatched, and that was it. She continued to do this through the rest of the pregnancy, usually every few days. It still hurt like crazy, but it was so infrequent and so short that I dealt with it.
Once the baby came and my milk came in, she went back to nursing. I limit it to once a day (she's going on 3.5 now), but she is fine with that. I guess that latching and unlatching during the pregnancy was just enough for her to remember how to do it. There is some mild discomfort for me now when she nurses, but I think it's just because her mouth is so big and so full of teeth
. I do have her open her mouth wide and stick her tongue out while she latches, and that helps some.
That said, I have no idea how you would go about getting a child to do this. It was her idea and I really had nothing to do with it. But I wanted to tell my story to show that it is possible to not really nurse through pregnancy, and then pick it up again after.
