Pregnancy & breastfeeding

Hello I am currently breastfeeding my almost 11 month old little one and just found out my pregnant. It's amazing as I have pcos + under active thyroid so my children haven't come easily to me so to say I'm amazed I could be pregnant whilst feeding just wowshock but I'm concerned as I feel like rubbish and don't want to eat how much is that going to effect supply as it has already dropped ? Is feeding whilst pregnant a risk? I lost a baby at ten weeks before we had our rainbow I don't want to tell anyone just yet so I'm here for advice

Congratulations! I fell pregnant with DC3 while still feeding. As far as I’m aware there’s no risk to either child. It’s a fairly normal thing, biologically speaking. You are at higher risk of twins though I believe!

Take extra good care of yourself though. Try to eat when you can, and rest when possible.

Hi thanks resting is difficult as we have a five year old also. Wow twins how mad that would be my pregnancy took two weeks to show positive surely if there were two it have gone quicker lol think my dear hubby might move into the shed if it's more than one

Pregnant with DC4 - I get there’s no rest!

There’s a July antenatal group if you want some buddies?

Just join in! In “being pregnant” there’s an “antenatal groups” section. It’s in there smile

Hi @greymoon I fell pregnant while feeding too. My baby is almost 11 months and I’m 20 weeks with DC2. So far my supply hasn’t dwindled and as far as I know it’s fine to continue feeding unless advised not to for some medical reason. The fetus gets first dibs on nutrition and then your bf baby. You are last so be sure to take vitamins in order to stop becoming run down. I try to stay well hydrated and eat lots of oats! Like you I felt horrible in the early days and my diet wasn’t great. Feeding was also a little painful for me at the beginning but it didn’t last long, all is going well now and my 20 week scan looked good too. Congratulations!
