I am 17 weeks pregnant with baby no. 2! And am still nursing my 29 month old daughter. =)
Today, however, I have been unable to express any milk, and my girls constant asking to nurse, paired with her getting un-interrested within just a few minutes confirm for me that the milk's just not there.
I feel so... empty. Really. I've spent the entire day either bawling or trying my hardest not to cry.
I was so set on nursing through - and if it happens, it's only to be a dry nurse. I feel so hurt.
My daughter seems ok. She's asking a lot to nurse, and is sucking - she nurses to sleep for nap, and she went down fine today. She doesn't nurse down for night - and we haven't night nursed in months. I'm not worried that we'll lose our special cuddling time together (at least I don't think I am - but I feel heartbroken. I wasn't ready to stop.
Aside from talking to my OB about this, do you know of any great books, websites, should I call an LC? Would they be of any assistance?
Any words of wisdom?
I know we had a great run.
I know that nursing was as beneficial to me as it was for her.
I'm just, sad.
