My biggest struggle was making sure I got enough nutrients. The fetus will take everything they need first, whatever is left over from that will go towards making breastmilk, and when that's done your body will get the rest. For a few weeks I felt very weak and tired because my body was not getting enough nutrients since they were all being used elsewhere. After talking with a nutritionist and my OB I was able to find a diet full of nutrient dense foods that worked for us and let me continue to breastfeed throughout my pregnancy.
