Having trouble stopping

Hi All - I've been working on weaning from the pump for several weeks now. My original goal was 6 months and I've made it for more than 8, so I'm happy (although I still have mixed emotions about it - LO LOVES his BM). Anyway, I started by gradually spacing out the pumps further and then dropping one at a time until I was down to once a day. I then went to once every day and a half, every 2 days, etc. I've also been cutting down the time of that one session. The problem is that as I stretch out the time in between, I can't seem to just stop. I'll start feeling nauseous and very sore until I pump again. Its been four days since my last pump and that nauseous feeling is back again. Just wondering how long this lasts. I'd love to make tonight's pump my last, but I'm afraid in another five days I'll have the same feeling again. Any advice or thoughts from those of you who have been here?

Thanks!

Sounds like hormonal changes could be causing you some upset stomach.
