pregnant and breastfeeding

Hi ladies!! We are 8 weeks pregnant with our second little miracle. We have a 17 month old who i'm still nursing and I was also on birth control so this little guy or gal is meant to be in this world. I was just wondering if other moms have been breastfeeding and pregnant at the same time? I feel like my hormones are on serious overload and I could eat nonstop all day. I don't but I could..oh and this nauseau thing I have now I didn't have with our little girl so this is new..any tips with the nausea and how not to eat everything in sight..thanks :)

I'm 13 weeks and just starting to get over the nausea. I still get sick every morning but after being up for about an hour and drinking a lemon ginger tea, I start to feel much better. The doctor prescribed me an antinauseant called diclectin for pregnant women and it also helped a lot. I was getting sick 3 times a day or more in tge beginning. I also find eating small meals frequently helps as having an empty stomach makes the nausea worse. As for breastfeeding, this is my 1st pregnancy so the only thing that I can tell you is that my sister just went through the same thing and she kept feeding for a few months then started weaning my nephew off as he got closer to 24 months. Hope that helps

7 weeks (I think, not confirmed) 13 month old daughter still nursing and I'm having the same problems!!!  I was told the Dr will tell me to wean her :(  I'm starving so I eat and then I vomit... I cannot win plus I wake up at night bc I am starving... this is awful!  Never heard of lemon ginger tea... ginger gives me awful heart burn but maybe I will try that?

My DD will be a year on the 21st and I'm 15 weeks along and still breastfeeding. I found my milk supply has dwindled to almost nothing and we've had to start supplementing so she gets the amount of milk she needs. I didn't want to wean this early but I have no choice. Nausea can be helped by making sure you take your prenatal vitamins and try finding ginger mints. They really help before a meal to settle your stomach.

I've definitely heard of people doing it but no wonder why your starving all the time! Your trying to lactate and make a baby at the same time!
A lot of women will try to wean when this occurs but it's completely up to you although tandem breastfeeding is very straining on mom.
plus, I don't know for a fact but a lot of women who are in your position will try to wean the older Baby because the nipple stimulation and breastfeeding could cause premature labor. But definitely do your own research.
I watched a video about a woman who did it by making a mixture of organic milk, a tiny bit of honey and a dash of salt and she would steam it. Before bedtime she would sit on the couch and drink her special drink and go on and on about how yummy and delicious it is so that waythe little one would be curious about it and eventually she replaced the boob with this special drink she called special Tea

Oh yeah the nipple pain is bad for me. My OB said that breastfeeding during pregnancy is totally safe unless you have had previous high risk pregnancies or if this one is high risk.
