    Breastfeeding while pregnant???

    I recently got a new app on my ipod , while searching through the information in it ... I came along an ask the docs section that stated breastfeeding while pregnant can cause a miscarriage or pre term birth!!!... ok so I had not heard this before. I understand that nursing produces nipple stimulation & does trigger your body 's production of the hormone oxytocin, & the fear being this could cause contractions... But doesn't your uterus have these similar contractions during sex or even Braxton hicks ??? & what about all the tandum nursing and books about it... nothing that I have seen mentions this to be a problem in a "normal pregnancy". I understand that there are pregnancies with prior pre term birth or miscarriages in the mother's past where this would be suggested to stop nursing ( as well as to stop intercourse)... and I also understand that nothing can be said for certain. I am currently in my 7th week of pregnancy and I am nursing my 19 month old... I do plan on weaning prior to the new baby, & I have heard that the toddler often ends up self weaning... PLEASE any clarity would be great.
