So I posted a few weeks ago about having a supply problem since going back to work at the end of the summer (teacher.) Well, I was thinking about it last week and had an epiphany; pretty sudden supply drop-off, tired a lot, no period since early August, peeing all the time.....all things you could easily not notice or attribute to something else. But sure enough - got a BFP yesterday! Wow! Kinda shocked but shouldn't be, we removed the goalie for the summer to see what would happen but I didn't really think anything would. I'm way more fertile than I thought I was! Anyway, I'm wondering who else here has continued to BF while pregnant, even through a low supply. Now that I know the cause, I don't think there's much I'll be able to do to boost my supply. So far we seem to be doing okay, I think I'm making just enough to keep DD happy, but only barely. There are times it seems like she's frustrated because she's not getting much and then eventually kind of gives up where I think otherwise she would want more. There is definitely nothing left to pump. I am planning to supplement with formula but am not sure what the longer-term plan should be. My goal was to BF until one year, but now I'm thinking maybe I should give it up earlier. Just wondering what others' experience has been. Thanks ladies!
Re: Pregnant and BFing
I still haven't decided when I will stop breastfeeding DS. I'm planning on trying tandem nursing but we will see how that goes.
Anyways I wish you luck! Congrats on your BFP!!!
Ps I hope this makes sense, I just woke up! :P

My friend has 3 kids all about 15 months apart and she was able to pump/nurse until third tri when she had to stop bc they didn't want it to bring on contractions.

Thanks, I took a test again last night and it was positive...quite a shock. Not really thinking this soon, but as my husband said not much we can do about it now. I literally had a period and then got pregnant. It's still sinking in...I'm hoping to be due at the very end of May so I only have to miss the last week of school. I really don't want to have to miss longer then that bc I took maternity leave last year and it was my first year at the school.
I think my friend had to stop because she was high risk for early labor.
