Re: When does pregnancy start to affect nursing?

I know I'm pregnant because the ovulatory soreness I get doesn't fade. The soreness comes and goes during my pregnancies, peaking as things get really dry around 4-5 months, then ease up some with some days worse than others. My supply is generally affected by 2 months, but not completely dry until 4-5 months. 1-2 months after, colostrum comes in and eases things up some. I make about 2-3 tbsp colostrum per side, so it is better. But I have always been nursing toddlers (18+ months) by then, so not even close to enough milk to not have them be angry at me.
