So i'm 6 1/2 weeks pregnant. I'm having really bad cramping and uterine contractions every time i nurse my son so my OB wants me to quit nursing immediately as he is worried it could lead to miscarriage. he wants LO completely weaned by Friday. I nursed him this morning but since 8am (it is 12pm now) i have just given him a bottle as well as a cup... i'm so sad and cried my eyes out when i got the call from my doc telling me what he wanted me to do. but i have two babies to think about now and don't want to risk my unborn baby to give my son longer time of nursing. I'm so proud that I have successfully nursed him for 12 month! He will be one on wednesday (in 3 days) and we have had such an amazing time together with it. I will miss it but am so glad that I provided him all that nutrition :) I had planned on nursing him to 18 months but feel good that i did it as long as i did.
anyone else have to wean due to pregnancy?
i'm due with LO #2 in November :)
