I am still breastfeeding my 2 year old daughter, and recently had an early miscarriage (at 5 weeks). Since then I've had odd hormonal stuff ... pregnancy symptoms with definately no pregnancy (blood test was definately negative) and the doctor insisted that breastfeeding 'confuses your hormones'. I'm on Chinese herbal medicine now, which seems to be bringing things back to normal.
I am getting a bit long in the tooth (nearly 4 decades under my belt .. eek!) but very much want a second child. I'd wait to try another pregnancy until my daughter naturally weans, but I don't know how long that will be, and ... well, the old clock's ticking!
I would love to hear stories of pregnancies while breastfeeding, and any info anyone may have on the subject; research, etc.
Thanks in advance! :-)
