It has been an incredible 20weeks

I am half way through my pregnancy and my 15m19d still nurses on. 
It has been an ‘incredible’ 20 weeks! Suffering from morning sickness, nipple soreness, taking care of two kids to managing the home (as a stay at home mum), I would say breastfeeding during this pregnancy journey has been far tougher (maybe because of aging too๐Ÿ˜). 
Unlike my elder girl who was 2+ when I was pregnant with the second baby, I find that kid who just turned one year old when I found I was pregnant – is less able to ‘comprehend’. Similar to the elder sister, she doesn’t take any other milk (directly) – so she continues to nurse on like usual (in fact increased nursing in the beginning weeks)! Good news is she has been gaining appetite and remains as active (if not more active) than usual. 
I don’t know how long my breastfeeding journey with her will last, or could we do tandem nursing in the near future (my elder girl actually weans off naturally after two weeks the second one was delivered) – would actually appreciate my ‘single time’ nursing her now (even nipple does sore)! In fact, her day nursing has reduced tremendously in the past week – yesterday she went 12 hours without nursing (but gone maniac ๐Ÿ™„during wee hours)!
4y3m19 days of breastfeeding and still counting……๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„
