breastfeeding while pregnant

I have heard that too much nipple stimulation could induce labour. Is nursing considered nipple stimulation. I guess I'm wondering if it is safe nursing your toddler while pregnant. I stopped nursing because I found out I was pregnant, when my oldest was 18mnths. I was worried that the stimulation would induce a miscarrage....I mean "could" induce a misscarrage and the chance was not worth it to me. I have heard several times that some mothers are nursing their toddlers while pregnant.
My other concern is that the new baby is missing out on the important stuff, like the collustrum. I though that you milk develops while you are pregnant to fit the needs of the "newborn". Does it still do this if you are nursing the whole time you are pregnant?
Just a question!
