Hello! I was just wondering what certain signs of pregnancy while br___tfeeding are? We have an almost 8 month old beautiful daughter who is primarily br___tfeeding. The usual symptoms of missed period and enlarged br___ts are not available, as the mentral period has not yet returned and br___ts are producing milk. Thank you for your help!

Although I can't speak for all women or all pregnancies, I got pregnant while b___stfeeding my daughter when she was 10 months old. I am now 12 weeks pregnant. My first sign that something was wrong was when the nausea came on all of a sudden and tiredness. I still thought, however, that the pregnancy test would be negative when i called the doctor. Well, that wasn't the case. I only had one cycle since b___stfeeding my daughter and then got pregnant directly after that. I still do not have the sore and swollen b___sts, other than when she first latches on. I hope this helps.

My baby girl is almost 11 months old and I think I might be pregnant again. I have felt really tired and nauses. My b___sts are not sore but I am still breatfeeding. I haven't taken a test yet I think it still might be to early. My question is if your nursing do your b___sts get sore or not?

Usually your b___sts don't get sore when you're nursing. Many women don't get sore b___sts their 2nd pregnancy even if they are not nursing any more with the 1st child. You might want to go to a La Leche League meeting in your area. Their website is there are answers to lots of questions there.

My son is 6 and a half months...I GAVE UP b___stfeeding at 8 weeks. I am definately pregnant again (5 weeks or so) and my b___sts only got sore like my period was coming for 1 day. Actually...they didn't get very sore my 1st pregnancy either. My cycle has still been all haywire the first signs for me were fatigue and eating, eating, eating!!!

I have a seven and half month old boy. I just found I'm pregnant. My symptoms were tiredness, nausea (at weird times of the day) and cravings too!!

My son is 11 months and am not sure if preg again or not. Already took 2 HPT and both were negative and that was at the 45 day mark from last period. I am on the mini-pill so periods have been erratic. I am hungry, but have tons of energy and hardly want to sleep. We'll see.
