If you have been nursing all along, from what I have heard, it shouldn't change a thing. Your body is used to the hormones released from nursing and sort of ignores them as normal LOL For them, the only pregnancy I went full term without a lot of preterm contractions was the pregnancy I nursed all of the way through.

Not really. I nursed through all of mine (except the first, obviously) and had a wide range of birth-times, running from term (me being very well-nourished) to 5 weeks early (m being very poorly nourished).

Doctors, however, will tell you it can be a pre-term labor risk, and use that as a reason why you must wean immediately. I wouldn't wean, though.

I nursed through my pregnancy. The only time it made any difference was the night before my baby was born.
Nipple stimulation won't usually bring on labor unless it's time to go into labor anyway.
