It's a Wrap

I can't believe the day has come, but DD is officially weaned. I admit, I cried a little. In fact, it's been two days and i'm still a little weepy about it. I know it's the right thing and that she was ready but still... it's much harder than I thought. And this is coming from someone who wasn't even sure she was going to breastfeed to begin with!

I guess I'll need to find another board now that I'm no longer TTC and breastfeeding. :( Though I guess I never really got to the TTC part of it. I'm still waiting on my first PP AF. I can't temp because DD still wakes up a few times a night but I do keep track of CM. So far no indications that anything is happening but hopefully now that DD is weaned things will kick into gear.

I'm planning to run a half marathon the 1st of October and after that, if AF still hasn't shown up, I'm going to try and put on a little bit of weight and cut back my running miles to see if that makes a difference. If nothing by November I'll probably go see my midwife and see if I can get a jump start.

I will probably hang out here until I get AF since I'm still dealing with the hormone issues associated with breastfeeding (at least I assume/hope that's the issue). Please send positive vibes my way!

It can be hard when one stage is over and the next begins for sure. Congrats and hugs on making it so far - especially when you didn't think you would even try at all :) You should feel proud and yes, a little sad, but excited for what comes next. Feel free to stay with our board as long as you want....there are other ladies here who are just hanging out even though not actively TTC or BF'ing right now.
Good for you for running a marathon - running does not appeal to me at all so I admire anyone who can do that!

Stick around as long as you want! We have plenty of people who have weaned but still TTCing or, like me, former grads (or two time grads in my case). Hope your ppaf shows up quick! I bet it will be here within a few months at the latest.
