The changeover between mature milk and colostrum production begins, on average, between the 4th and 8th month of pregnancy, but some mothers start producing colostrum somewhat earlier than that. Many mothers who nurse through pregnancy have noted that their milk contains mostly colostrum during the last month before baby is born. You will continue to produce colostrum throughout the latter part of your pregnancy - your older nursling cannot "use it up."
Yep, pregnancy trumps nursing. I'm early in my second trimester and the milk is pretty much gone. In another couple months I'm sure I'll be producing colostrum instead. I do wonder how Josephine will react to that - although the milk disappearing doesn't seem to have phased her much. She'll nurse at bedtime and then simply ask for a cup of milk when she's done.
