Oh Dear Lord. I do not know how longer I can keep this up. I'm so huge ! I've gained 27 pounds. When I try latch both girls on I can't even see if they are latched on correctley! Both girls have the flu and All they have been doing is sleeping and nursing ! I'm sooo tired! I love nourishing and nursing my daughters and comforting them while they are sick but I'm so so so sooo tired! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:

WOW yeah I can't imagine how tired you would be nursing 2 while pregnant, you would have time to do nothing but eat, nurse, and sleep. Bless your heart!

Wow! You must be exhausted. My DS had croup all weekend and nursed non-stop--I thought I was going to collapse from the exhaustion, and he's just one kid! You're doing a great job!

Sent your husband out for a bunch of bottled water. Have him put ice in the cooler with the bottled water and snacks before he leaves in the morning. Get some good books and DVDs and veg in bed with your sick kiddos.

I'm right with you mama!!! Mine are 4 and 2 yo. To make matters worse, dd (4 yo) has a horrible latch, ever since I lost my milk while pg with ds. So, when she gets on, let's just say it feels really "icky". It doesn't bother me when the 2 yo nurses, although about 2 wks ago, my areolas started hurting me, so now it's just getting painful and irritating feeling. Do you still have any milk? I lost it with my first, but I have a LITTLE bit still with this one, thank God! I really don't want ds to wean yet, he's too young. Although I wouldn't mind if dd weaned! She doesn't nurse often, only a couple to several times a day, but ds nurses more. Can you believe we might/probably will end up triandem nursing? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/jaw.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dropjaw"> Dh was like "what if it's twins, what would that even be called?!" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> (quadrandem nursing?!) Take care mama! I feel your pain! (but aren't they so sweet?)<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">: (BTW, I rarely ever nurse them together, I wish I could, but it feels so horrible, that I almost want to throw up. My skin crawls, it's terrible!!! I wish I didn't get that physical reaction to it. Plus, I'm so small (as are my breasts), that to put both on is truly hysterical, and a feat in acrobatics. One has to lie on the other (remember, dd has a horrible latch, so there's only really one position I can even tolerate), and they are 42 and 32 pounds. So, neither wants the other on them!) OH, the joys of nursing!!!

I still have lots of milk. I'm taking Fenugreek . My milk never dried up during both pregnancies.

Did you take fenugreek both times. How do you know if it was that, or just you? I wish my supply didn't decrease.

I'm not really sure . All I know is I never really fully lost my milk.

I'm nursing dd and ds2. At this point though, I'm only nursing dd at bedtime because it's driving me nuts.

does the pain of breastfeeding while pregnant get less as time goes on, more as time goes on, or stay the same? I'm 7 weeks along, and breastfeeding my dd is EXTREMELY painful! I hate to say that I am having a hard time enjoying breastfeeding becuase it is so unbelievably painful.

I think it's different for everyone. I didn't have any pain until now (my 2nd trimester). I would think it'd get better as time goes on, until the "icky" feelings start surfacing. (when I nursed dd through ds's pg, I had to count to 20, read a REALLY good book, etc., b/c of the icky feelings I got when she was latched on. UGH, it gives me the chills just to think about it!, but that doesn't happen to everyone.)
