Well after a crazy week last week with a few false positive pregnancy test it has really given me baby fever. I am currently nursing my almost 5 month baby boy (who is baby number 4) and I just started my period today..yuck. I have a few questions about being pregnant and breastfeeding. If I were to get pregnant this next month and baby would be around 6 months old would I still be able to bf till he was one? Is that too hard on a woman's body? I am just thinking of how exhausted I feel in the first trimester and I have never nursed and baby while one is baking inside, sounds like a lot of work for a mama. But I am totally open to it. Also I have heard many babies wean once you get pregnant because it changes your milk. Anyone experience nursing and pregnancy at the same time? How did it go? I also am a thin person and while nursing I have always held onto an extra 10 lbs will I be stuck with this weight on top of another pregnancy weight? I do want to be able to get back down to my pre pregnancy weight again. I would love to hear anyone's experiences with being pregnant and breast feeding a young baby.

I don't have personal experience, but I know it is possible to nurse through pregnancy. If that is your intention, you might want to consider the fact that your older child may not want to stop nursing after the new baby is born, so you may really want to consider if you'd be willing to tandem nurse.

Some babies do wean themselves when the milk changes, but it does really just depend.

Hi there and welcome. I would say these are some excellent questions for the Breastfeeding board here on JM, there are more ladies on there with experience in that area and there is even a subform specifically for tandem nursing/pregnancy while nursing...

My daughter was 11 months old when I got pregnant again. She was still nursing regularly. I started to try and wean her once I found out but she had a really hard time with it. I have gotten down to only nursing her once a day at night. I am 38 weeks pregnant now. The only hard part about it has been recently at the end of pregnancy. I feel almost like I'm having contractions every time she tries to nurse so Iíve been trying to do everything I can to wean her completely. It isn't hard being pregnant and nursing, just towards the end. Good luck!
