Pregnant and Weaning Woes

Yes, I'm pregnant! :) Totally unplanned and unexpected, but we couldn't be more happier! :)

Morning sickness kicked in a day after we found out I'm pregnant. I was starting to feel nauseated days before but I brushed it off, thinking I was about to get sick, but I wasn't. Now, I don't have any appetite for anything. Sometimes just the thought of food makes me nauseated. Ugh. I feel bloated all the time. I'm always sleepy. I hate morning sickness. :(

My daily-must fix of milk tea and coffee, surprisingly, went away on its own. I don't need my coffee fix in the morning or my milk tea fix in the afternoon. One thing I noticed though is my craving for soy sauce and wasabi, same with when I was pregnant with Y. I'm looking forward to what I'll be craving this time around. :)

While we're happy about this new addition, my dilemma now is breastfeeding Y. I know I want to tandem nurse eventually. I stopped pumping last week. Though it's liberating, I'm a bit sad! My OB advised me to wean Y already. I'm still reading on  breastfeeding Y while I'm pregnant. It's possible. But I'm worried. I had pre-term labor when I was around 5.5 months pregnant with Y, and I read it's not SAFE to breastfeed. I'm not ready to wean Y yet! Hay... I feel sad just thinking about it. I don't think is ready yet...
Y doesn't drink much BM during the day, she doesn't like Pediasure, she eats alot though. I'm thinking of switching to fresh milk.

Back to happy thoughts, we're hoping and wishing for a BOY! I wished to have a baby by the time I'm 27, I gave birth to Y when I was 26. But I never thought I'd have 2 kids before turning 30. Happy happy joy joy!
