Its safe unless you are at risk for preterm labor. You do need to get LOTS of healthy food and nutrients if you are, because pregnancy and breastfeeding can be exhausting. If you aren't comfortable continuing, or are too tired, DO NOT feel guilty. But you can do it, you just have to get plenty of rest and good food. Be sure to ask your OB if there are any herbal supplements you can take to keep up supply. DO NOT use fenugreek or anything with fenugreek though. Medicinal doses can act as a uterine stimulant, which can set off contractions. Your best bet, to be honest, would be to get in LOTS of protein.
But like I said, you know your body best. And if you feel the need to stop, do not feel guilty. Its a balancing act between you, your unborn, and your little one! If all else fails, talk to your doc or a lac consultant. Get some rest. If you are PG, you're gonna need it!
