Signs You Are Pregnant While Breastfeeding
I need to know the signs you are pregnantwhile breastfeeding. You're losing the ability to breastfeed. That could be because the baby is weaning. Or because your baby is weaning, your periodreturned. I have not had it yet. Just your luck, you conceived because youthought breastfeeding was your birth control while your fertility has returned. That's why I'm asking about signs youare pregnant while breastfeeding.
Some women do not realize their period hasreturned because it is more of a pink discharge, where the spotting is mixed with mucus. Before I had kids, that would have grossedme out to even hear you say it. If you can smell the sour milk in the bottlethe baby found under the couch before you even see the green tint, you might be pregnant. Or it smells really bad. For a lot of women, the increased sensitivityto smells like rotted food and meat and fish kick in before the nausea even does.
So my first sure sign of pregnancy would bemorning sickness. Since your breasts are already enlarged fromthe first pregnancy, as well as with milk, you won't see them get bigger than theyalready are. However, aches and pains from a growing belly could be a sign of pregnancy. I'm already stretched out from the firstpregnancy, so I won't get uterus cramps from it growing. Perhaps, but you will see a baby bump fasterwith this one, since the muscles are all stretched out.
Or I have not lost the baby weight while thekid is turning into a toddler. For some women, the change in vaginal dischargeis a sign of pregnancy, but unless you do natural family planning, you're unlikelyto notice. The only biological functions I pay attentionto these days are with regard to the toddler. One possible sign of pregnancy is exhaustionand fatigue. You're especially prone to dehydration if you need to drink for three,you, the kid inside and the one breastfeeding. I'd be as likely to blame that on chasingafter a mobile kid. If you're drinking as much water as beforeand still dehydrated, your body's need for
fluids has gone up while the intake has not.The other possibility is anemia from the increased need for iron relative to your intake. That I could solve by buying a large steak. But if you hit the meat aisle to pick up ared steak dinner and find it makes you ill, you're probably pregnant.
