hi ladies,

so I'm a little over 15 weeks and DS is now 26 months old! (oh my how did that happen!!) we slowed down a lot over the past few months and started up again here and there when DS had a virus and when we traveled...but now for the past four days or so he has only asked once or twice...and its been for less than a minute. it really hurts, it has hurt all along since becoming pregnant, but now it really aches when he laches. today when he bumped his head he asked to nurse but barely even latched and it was over...I have such mixed feelings. I feel like I was waiting so long for him to wean on his own and now that it is here I am a little relieved but also sad. I know it will be nice to have my body to myself for a few months!

other than that I am feeling just fine.

Hi Laurie!!! So great to hear from you and very glad that you are doing well. My DS#1 weaned when I was about 15 weeks pregnant with #2 - it did hurt and became so irritating. Like you I was relieved and sad at that same time - bittersweet moments.

Keep coming back to visit when you can.
Big hugs,

Glad to hear from you! I'm sure this is a bittersweet time for you, but making it as far as you did with BF is amazing!!! You should be proud of yourself for that and take comfort in the fact that DS came to this on his own terms and that you didn't have to push the issue- i can only imagine how much harder that would've been.

Continued best wishes for your pregnancy and upcoming baby.
