Re: Nursing Pregnancy and Miscarriage
so sorry for your loss, and i agree about not keeping miscarriages hush-hush.
mommal's right on, as usual, and i'd also want to know if you had miscarriages before your DD or if they're only happening afterwards/while nursing. i know that you are in an emotional/hormonal state and your doc's comment was hurtful, but i actually think she's being a lot more reasonable about it than most docs. i mean, she isn't even suggesting that it's a problem NOW, just that if you have 3 in a row miscarriages while nursing, you might want to think about it. i think that's reasonable -in combination with thinking about all the other more common reasons why you might be miscarrying, as mommal suggested. being pregnant and nursing myself right now - it IS hard, and it IS a big demand on one's body.
