A few ladies here have mentioned breastfeeding through pregnancy - I'm curious how many of us there are? And what are your experiences wtih it (in your current pregnancy or past pregnancies)?
My two-year-old is still breastfeeding. I have met my breastfeeding goal (two years) so I think I would feel fine about it if he weaned at any point during pregnancy. However, since there are still health benefits for both of us,and since it's still a nice way for us to spend quiet time together (not to mention my secret weapon at nap time!), I'm happy to continue for now.
I feel very grateful that (so far!) breastfeeding while pregnant has not been uncomfortable. However, I do strongly suspect that my milk supply has gone down. His appetite for solids has noticably increased. Also, for a couple months now, I've been trying to limit nursing to bedtime and morning waking, before and after nap (on days that I'm home), and upon reunion when I've been gone to work or somewhere else. Only since pregnancy has he been easily dissuaded from dropping the "in between" feeds.
