    Default Is this normal?

    Is it normal to feel extremely nauseous when pumping? For the past two weeks, every time my milk lets down when pumping, I feel like I am going to be ill. Just wondered if anyone else has experienced this.

    TIA!

    Are you drinking plenty of water while you pump? That's the only thing I can think of....either that or "snacking" on something while you pump, makes it a bit easier & less nausea.
    Hope that helps!

    Is there any chance that you could be pregnant again. I have heard that for some pregnant women when their milk lets down the feel sick.

    It's a fairly common thing. Related to the release of oxytocin. You might find that eating a snack before pumping helps.
