I don't know what's going on but lately (for the last month or two) I can't stand to nurse. It's like nails on a chalkboard. I'm pretty confident there is minimal milk in there (she's nursing 1-2x a day and not for long) and wonder if that's a contributor. I thought it was hormonal at first...but it's been a while now and that doesn't seem to be the case. I had hope to do CLW...but now I just don't know that I can take it. It's even hard when I think of having another baby and I worry, what if I still feel this way??? I'm terrified of that.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/help.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="help"><br><br>
Any ideas?

I second the are you sure you aren't already pregnant question. Nails on chalkboard feelings have been hallmarks of conception for me with subsequent pregnancies.<br><br>
Nursing becomes very uncomfortable once I become pregnant again. I usually try to find ways to manage the discomfort/pain until the nursling is more comfortable weaning or cutting back.

I’ve had that feeling off and on for the past 6 months or so with my 3yo. Definitely not pregnant. For me it is because there isn’t much milk anymore so with no milk flowing during most of the time he nurses, there is nothing to lubricate my nipple and it gets very dry. It’s a very irritating feeling, chafing…<br><br>
I’m sorry, I have no suggestions. I’ve just been dealing with it. It usually only happens when he nurses for more than a few minutes, which he doesn’t do a whole lot anymore.

Nope not preggers <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Not yet anyway and I'm 100% sure of that...<br><br>
See dd would nurse for an hour if I would let her and unfortunately I've had to limit her because I can't take it. I'm afraid *I'm* beginning the weaning process and I feel both guilty and relieved. It could be another year of this style of nursing which I'm fine with...I can handle 5-10 min at a time....I can't do 20-30 min of nursing on an empty boob.
