I had an emotional breakdown

I'm hoping it's related to the pregnancy hormones. It seems every time my little one and/or niece cries, I do too.
I don't typically have anxiety but I feel like I've been having little panic attacks. And now my baby is on a nursing strike. I thought about going for a walk and getting some sunlight but I just keep getting really emotional.
Anyone else feel a little crazy while pregnant?

I heard from somewhere that sometimes when you get pregnant it causes the older child to stop nursing, don't know if its true.....just a few people have said its happened to them.  Hope it's not that and just a strike....

It is true that pregnancy can cause a dip or even diminish your supply. OP, I believe I remember reading that your LO is about 5 months old, if so it is very likely that supplements may become necessary. Look into mother love milk 2, and possibly on HM4HB or eats on feets for donor milk if you are trying to avoid formula. Congrats on your pregnancy. :-)

Yes, the pregnancy hormones can make you crazy. Getting sunlight will definitely help.

OMG when I was pregnant I can't even tell you how much I cried. My cat was being horrible one day and meowing so much I cried. LOL. My husband used to jump out from behind corners and doors to scare me before being pregnant, he did it only once when I was pregnant and learned his lesson because I burst into tears. B vitamins can help. :) A friend of mine is going trough her first pregnancy and keeps saying to me "I keep crying, is this normal?" I keep assuring her it is.

I stayed in bed most of yesterday and watched movies and cried, movies that aren't even sad lol. I think I am already feeling better today. My daughter decided this morning that strike is over. I have some vitamins to take and I think today I will get out of bed!
My sister is back from a work trip and is planning on coming by today. She usually makes me feel so much better.
Did your cat ever apologize for making you cry?

I have actually had an increase in supply recently. I have had to pump a lot.

Relating to the strike...I have also read pregnancy may change the taste of bm. Weird huh? Glad her strike is over, and your sister is stoping by. I know my sissy always makes me feel better. :)

She's such an amazing sister. It truly helps. The taste change would explain a lot. I was kind of thinking since she is hearing impaired maybe her other senses are heightened? Or is that crazy? I've been having to pump a bit before she nurses because I've been so full. I squirted her in the eye today and felt so bad! But it didn't seem to bother her too much.
