Hi all just wondering what were your symptoms when you found out you were pregnant while still breastfeeding

Same as my first pregnancy. Sore boobs and just a feeling of being pregnant. Unfortunately pregnancy seemed to cause my supply to dry up so we had to switch to formula as DS was frustrated and biting because he wasn't getting anything. Only way to tell us a positive test! My periods had returned, well I'd had one!

I'm still breastfeeding and waiting to test in 4 days. I barely had any symptoms with my firstborn. I found out at 15 weeks and can only remember a hot flush and faint feeling when I delivered a presentation blush must've been around 5 weeks pregnant at the time. This time, assuming we've been lucky ttc, I can check about every box besides sickness!

Mummy, I'm in the same boat, just one period. After two years I was relieved to know all seemed okay down there grin but hoping AF doesn't get me this week!

On the BF front I'd like to stop soon. It's been exhausting lately as dd who is 17 months is a proper milk monster.

I had all the early pregnancy symptoms going with DC1.

I was almost exclusively bf DC1 when I got pg with DC2, and had no symptoms whatsoever, apart from a very strong feeling I was pg which was confirmed by a test.

DC1 weaned himself off the breast at 12 weeks (seemed to go off the taste) and I immediately got the most horrendous morning sickness. I think the bf hormones were having a protective effect. Wish they'd lasted grin

Symptoms the same as with dc1. Blocked nose but no cold, slow digestive system and bloating! No sore boobs either time, and no change in their size either.

I've had really sore breasts lately but I haven't got my period at all and have back pain and bloating waiting to tests in three days confused
