Why the rush? It really varies whether a woman loses her milk supply while pregnant, but most do. I wouldn't risk it, but being able to BF is very important to me & my babies.

There's not much you can do until af returns, although some are able to catch the first pp egg. If she hasn't returned, short of cutting out nursing sessions (especially night)/going longer between feedings, partially weaning basically, there's not much you can do. Sometime af will return after your little one starts solids, it just varies woman to woman.

There's a thread in TTC for people ttc while breastfeeding, you can find some helpful things there or just join in for the company.

There isn't really anything you can do until Af returns. Last summer I got Af back while ebf'ing my 11 month old. We got pregnant again that first cycle and I was able to continue our nursing relationship throughout my pregnancy. Now I have a two year old and a 4 month old and I tandem nurse. I wouldn't want to do that again tho. Breastfeeding through a pregnancy was so much different and more difficult than I ever imagined.

Re: Getting Pregnant while BF

Did it effect your pregnancy at all as far as pre-term labor? I had LO a month early and I'm high risk for pre-term labor since I have a biconuate bicolis uterus and I don't want my babies super spread out but I don't want to wean my LO early, either... I'm not in a rush at the moment (LO is 9 mo) but I'd like to try to get pregnant by the time he's two... I just don't want to miscarry or wean him because his new sibling is coming.

I did nursed DS my entire pregnancy with DD and she was 5 weeks early but now with this pregnancy I've nursed DD until 2 weeks ago and am now 34 weeks and have no signs of preterm labor but I have also gotten progesterone shots every two weeks to prevent pre term. Labor

Re: Getting Pregnant while BF

I am a long gestator--DS was born at 40+6 (DD at 41+4) and all I had were regular BH contractions. I didn't experience a really strong increase in contractions during nursing sessions in early labor, either. If you have no other risk factors for PTL, it shouldn't be a problem. With risk factors, I don't know . . . .
