Annnnnd.... we're DONE!!!

Nursing, that is! :(

Yesterday she tried to nurse twice and didn't get anything either time!  She was mad and would unlatch and say "MILK!" so I gave her a cup of whole milk instead both times.  Today I didn't even offer it to her.  I just gave her the whole milk when she asked.  Soooo.... I'm sad.  I can't even think about it too much or I start to cry.  That and the whole hormone thing is not going well for me.  I would have thought since I've had my period back for several months now, that the drop in hormones while weaning (and the fact that I've been doing it gradually) would make it not so bad, but that's not the case.  I'm a bit of a wreck.  Mood swings and zero appetite (I literally have to force myself to eat and then I feel sick right afterwords).  Hopefully it regulates out soon!

It's weird that I have my body back to myself finally.  It's been over 4 years since I wasn't pregnant or nursing or trying to get pregnant!  I feel like doing something to celebrate, but I don't drink, lol!  So... maybe I will go down some Nyquil or something?!  LOL, I'm just kidding, but I am looking forward to being able to take Nyquil the next time I get sick!  YAY, or any other medication that I haven't been able to take in over 4 years! :)

Tomorrow is the girls' birthday party!!  They're excited even though it's only supposed to be in the 50's!  yuck!  Hopefully it all goes well!!!  I can't believe that Venily will be 3 in only 12 days!!!


  1. Awwww :( Sage dropped down to once a day, and I got my period back last weekend, so my poor hormones were OUT OF CONTROL!! lol! You're just going to have to have another baby so that you can enjoy nursing again! :)

  2. I just learned ALOT from reading this post! You have not had your period since giving birth?! I did not know the human female body did that! I guess I never thought about your milk drying up. You always hear about weird women nursing their like 5 year old! HAHA!

  3. Jenn- I think that every day, lol! And I cheated this morning and nursed Haven one more time b/c I was sooooo uncomfortable and full!

    Alisha- I have had my period now for several months, but went quite a while without it! Some women don't get it though until they start weaning, especially if they are exclusively breastfeeding (before they introduce solids) or if they breastfeed often throughout the day.
