My DD is 7.5 months and about 3 weeks ago I started to notice a severe decrease in the amount of milk I would get during pumps. At the same time DD began getting really frustrated at the breast after 5 min or so of nursing.
At that time I added an extra pump, started eating oatmeal everyday and took fenugreek daily. To date I have seen no increase in my supply and I am very concerned that DD is not getting enough milk at each feeding.
Fast forward to last Friday and I decide to randomly take a pregnancy test. It was positive. We have had the pregnancy confirmed and I am 8 weeks along.
I am thinking the drop in my milk supply is a direct result of my being pregnant. I am thrilled about the pregnancy but heartbroken about my milk supply.
I am terrified that I will dry up and have to either switch to or supplement with formula. Our BF relationship has been so wonderful until now and I'm not ready for it to end.
Any advice, tips, or support in General will be so very appreciated :-)
