what are preg symptoms while nursing?

okay... i'm not sure if this is the right thread but here goes
i am breastfeeding, but my son also eats a couple meals of solid food too, and has been sleeping through the night at least 1 month. I haven't had a period yet. My nipples are really sore but i'm not sure if he is just being rough or? also i haven't been feeling the best most mornings, but maybe i just haven't eaten enough breakfast? Alsi I'm tried, but aren't most mommies? I really dont want to go buy a test but... does it sound like i should? He is 6 months old, and we didn't have try a lot to get him LOL- mixed blessing. I just don't know what symptoms to look for when you are breastdeeding thai would cause you to really need to go buy a test.

p.s.
bc has been kind of spotted since he started sleeping through the night.
we are very more family but maybe also pro waiting a liitle while more, like a few months

Re: what are preg symptoms while nursing?

I had to ask that question a lot while my body returned to normal after birth and while BFing... I was told that you'd likely be more tired than usual with a baby ( naps, falling asleep sitting up, lol) change in flavor or amount of milk, sore bb's, cramping and abdominal bloating. These are only what I was told by other women who got pregnant while nursing, I was worried about it myself and asked around. To be on the safe side, (and if the not-knowing doesn't kill you first) I'd wait a couple of weeks and if the symptoms are still there with no period or other good explanation, I'd go ahead and test. The frustrating thing is that while every pregnancy is different even with the same woman, pregnancy signs while nursing appear to be even more personal and ther is not a good way to pin it down.
good luck and I hope you get the results you want!

Excrutiatingly sore nipples is what I can recall. I wanted to cry when Ella wanted to nurse. And my milk slowly dried up

Re: what are preg symptoms while nursing?

Well I'm 7 weeks pregnant........ I have noticed that I have "evening sickness" - really just feeling gross but no actual vomiting.........
I also am VERY tired compared to before!
I am starting to bloat as well, my clothes aren't fitting so well anymore. well my pants anyway!
Also, I have the more frequent urination thing going on and a loss of appetite.

My DD is nursing more frequently now (honestly I think it's a growth spurt bc she's eating TONS of solids too), and my letdown is a lot slower and I don't have quite as much milk as I used to.........

Re: what are preg symptoms while nursing?

I have gotten pg twice now while breastfeeding, once 2 weeks after starting solids, and believe me the worst thing is the PAIN. I managed a few more months of bfing but couldn't go as long as I had wanted. For me it was pain on the initial latch on, maybe for about a minute or two, and then I was OK.

All of my other symptoms were pretty normal, all day long sickness and such.

I got pregnant with this new little one while nursing my 2 year old. My biggest symptom was how moody I was (am).
