Ever since I got pregnant, I've been having more discomfort with nursing. It has intensified with time, and it has now gotten to the point where I cringe every time I sit down to nurse DS. He's 20 months and I wanted to keep nursing until around 2 (as long as he still seemed interested, of course), but I'm starting to seriously consider weaning because I don't know how much longer I can nurse through this. In terms of pain level, it's approaching the feeling of nursing him during the first week or two when he was tongue tied - really painful!
Not sure if this is very relevant, but the pain does fade eventually. At this point I'd say it's REALLY bad for about one minute (like, writhing in the rocker bad), bad for about four minutes, and then it subsides to discomfort. It has been getting worse - it used to be bad for 20 seconds, painful for 2 minutes, and then uncomfortable. Thankfully I only nurse 2x a day at this point. Oh, and my nipples don't hurt when I'm not nursing as long as nothing is chafing them.
From other moms who have nursed while PG, is this something that I can expect to resolve itself? Any suggestions of how I might alleviate the pain?
