I am only about 5.5 weeks along and my baby girl (9.5 months)has completely lost interest. My supply had been down from being sick with a stomach bug (both of us) and I worked SO HARD to get my milk back. We got it back and had been doing okay, only I didnt feel like she was getting quite enough. We keep nursing though... now im pregnant and as the days go on, my supply goes down, as does her interest... Pumping hasn't been going well for about 5 months. I only get an ounce or less when I pump. I know up until this month that she was getting a lot more than that. Now her diapers havent been very wet during the day so at night I have supp. with a 3 oz bottle for the last 2 nights. I was so prepared to bf for a year, and its not even breast tenderness thats the problem here. Its just that I dont have the milk.
I know that its over... I hate to say it. I really am okay, when I gave her her first formula I cried... I didnt want to do it. Now im alright with it, I just feel like I need a release and for someone to say "this does happen sometimes, and its okay". I have so many friends that bf for a year, but none of them were pregnant while they did it. The one the EBF till 2.5 had to stop when she was pg bc it was so horribly painful. No one knows im pg, and hardly anyone sees/knows when I bf anymore since its not every 2 hours anymore. I dont know what im trying to say at this point except that I need some encouragement/support bc im pretty sure its over. Ive tried to bf for the last 2 days, but its just not happening... help!
