So I have been BF my 9.5 month old son since birth. He is in the process of increasing solid foods but still nurses about 5 times per day. I noticed about 2 weeks ago that my milk supply dropped by more than 50% practically over night! I had expected some drop with the increasing solids but not that fast or much. He does sleep through the night (since 5 months old) and I stopped getting up to pump during the night about 2 months ago.
My husband thinks I might be preggo since I have been trying every method in the book to increase supply without luck (fenugreek, fennel seed, oatmeal, wine, increased water, de-stressing, increased nipple stimulation throughout the day...etc). I have been having nausea, fatigue, occasional crampy feeling, change in appetite, and heartburn for the last few weeks as well. I have yet to get my first pp AF. I did take a HPT at 10 days and 5 days ago which were both negative. Could I have just tested too early? Its hard to tell without AF to give the cue of when.
Should I call my OB/GYN to see if I am pregnant even with the negative HPTs? I honestly do feel like I could be pregnant. It could also just be the return of AF.
