Yes: Typically it is safe to continue nursing while pregnant. There may be a decrease in the quantity or quality of your breastmilk at some point. You should also make sure you continue your vitamins and a well-balanced diet. If at any point it becomes too fatiguing to nurse while pregnant you should listen to your body and consider weaning. Ask your doctor or lactation consultant for advice too.
