pregnant and breastfeeding

I have a 10 month old and shes still nursing. I still havent gotten a period but the last few days everytime i feed her i start to feel really sick. I decided to take a test this morning and it was positive! I am still in shock! Since i havent  had a period the thought of pregnancy never crossed my mind. Anyone still breastfeeding? Are you going to keep going or start to wean. I dont know what to do!

I was breastfeeding while pregnant and my midwife said it was perfectly fine. My daughter self weaned at 23 months while I was just starting my second trimester. I would have done tandem nursing if she needed it, but she obviously didn't. Congrats on the new baby and you can breastfeed as long as you like!

My daughter is two and still nursing, I am 31 week's pregnant. Nothing wrong with continuing to nurse your baby as long as you feel it is the right thing for you and baby. Good luck.

Make sure to compensate nutrients. I got pregnant the third time when my daughter was 6 months old. I had to wean her at 13 months because my teeth started breaking. The doctor told me that three pregnancies so close together and breastfeeding while pregnant was taking too many nutrients from me.

My girl is going to be 8 months now and im still breastfeeding her and am almost in the second semester.  My milk supply has gone down  bit but she still does need my milk because she refuses formula. But i do want to wean her before baby #2 is here

Sounds like when i found out i was pregnant. When i found out he was 4 months now he's a year old still pregnant (35 weeks on wednesday) and still breastfeed but ill wean him when he is 2 y/o i sometimes still feel sick if he's on my nips too much. Ill be feeding two at once in a few weeks

I guess it really depends on your Dr. Mine doesn't feel that both can get what they need and nutrition wise my baby was not needing breast milk anymore anyways. Consult your physician to see how they feel as they know your indivual health.

Thanks for the input! I want to keep going, ill just have to get through this 1st tri of sickness and nipple pain. Its so confusing trying to figure out if ineed to throw up or if it's just a feeling. Ugh! I got to the doctor monday so ill talk with him about vitamins and anything else he feels necessary. I want these babes to be healthy.. oh me too! ;)
