    Question Nausea during nursing?

    My LO is nine months and a couple weeks. I have been feeling sick to my stomach for the last two weeks and now I've started to notice it seems to be worse when I nurse. I have recently cut out dairy due to my LOs allergy.

    Has anyone else been through something similar? I thought it was nursing PMS but this has lasted two weeks now. I POAS and its been negative twice.

    Could you be dehydrated? That makes you feel nauseous, and nursing might exacerbate it?

    Maybe... I'm drinking a bottle of water now though. (I drink water when ever I feel sick because dehydration sucks.)

    It just seems weird that it would last for two weeks. I like to drink a lot of water. And it hasn't been hot around here.

    I have this!

    I googled it, and I found out some women have this while breastfeeding. For me it feels like morning sickness, comes in waves and is worse when I am hungry. Of course my son is only 4 months and I have had it the whole time, so I'm not sure why you'd have it only the past two weeks...
