Well, I guess it's time for me to get back in the saddle. Please move me from waiting to be ready to waiting to O
. My temp dropped this morning, so AF should be rearing her ugly head any moment. Here's
my chart for the front page.
I'm trying to appreciate the ease of all DS's nursing now because nursing through a pregnancy isn't much fun. However, I really hope that DS will stick with it because I found tandem nursing to be a huge help with newborn-related nursing troubles. For example, I was able to quickly switch to block feeding when DS needed that because I could just get my DD to empty the unused breast. Other people have to work up to block feeding and risk plugged ducts, etc. Also, I had HUGE nipple problems with DD, but had absolutely nothing with DS, a situation which I credit to the fact that my nipples never had a break in which to get re-sensitized.
And a bit more encouragement for those of you who aren't sure that you want to nurse through your eventual pregnancies: we never had one moment's sibling issues -- a situation that has persisted to this day and DS is almost 2. I know that tandem nursing doesn't guarantee this result, but I'm prepared to believe that it's a large factor.
