After 3 kids I finally made it to a YEAR!!!! YAY!!!! I am SOO very proud of myself! I feel so IDK.. but it is wonderful!


Next I found out I am pregnant about a week ago now. I noticed a dip in my supply (I think from her behavior) which is why I tested. I can nurse even if I "dry up" right? Like just for comfort? I WANT to continue nursing as long as she is willing and happy to do so. I am also going to be a high risk pregnancy... can I still nurse her? I have a stash just in case I need to stop for a bit. I still want her to get the most she can from the milk. But honestly I have cried about 20 times knowing I may lose this bonding time with her.

ANything you can tell me would be great!

Yes, you can still dry nurse if you dry up. The only limitation on nursing while pregnant is if you're on pelvic rest, then you should not nurse.
Way to go! And congratulations! :-)

Yes, with all 3 kids... but so far nothing can prevent it.

Well, its not really "LABOR" my cervix just kinda gives out around 5 pound... I dont really contract.. in fact they end up giving me pit. to help delivery the baby.

Continuing to breastfeed should not have any affect on that.
