As already mentioned in previous blogs, this pregnancy hasn't been at all like my first two pregnancies. My first pregnancies were relatively straight forward singleton pregnancies. (Besides gestational diabetes with #1) My first concern when we found out I was pregnant was the fact that breastfeeding is not as straightforward as it was with the boys. This is due to my numerous reconstructive surgeries. I booked in to see a lactation consultant. Unfortunately the lovely lady who had to break the news to me that due to my reconstructive surgeries and tissue being completely removed along with my nipples, I couldn't breastfeed these twins, as my nerve endings are not connected. Put blatantly; my nipples are just for looks and are not connected to anything. Yes, this is 100% and after numerous tests, there is zero chance of me breastfeeding. So please please note I will open this by saying I am VERY pro breastfeeding. I breastfed both of the boys through all of the trials, mastitis and cracked bleeding nipples- we did it. Even whilst washing the dishes and cleaning the house!
