SKJ - , that is so hard. My SIL just sent us a package this week announcing her pregnancy, due in May which is what I wanted so badly. I'm happy for her though. She just got married this summer and I knew they were planning to get pregnant right away so it wasn't a huge shock or anything. My BIL just got married last month and I know they are planning to get pergnant right away also so I'm just waiting for that announcement. Hopefully we won't be too far behind them!! I totally understand your frustration. I have so many friends that accidentally got pregnant while still breastfeeding. At the time I was fine with it because I wanted to wait until my son was AT LEAST 2. But now that his 3rd birthday has passed it's getting harder and harder. Hang in there, our time will come!!! The good thing is that we know why we aren't getting pregnant (nursing) and it's not permanent.
AFM, I started the weaning process this week. Slow and steady, it will happen. I told DS that he could choose evening or morning for milk. Yesterday he chose morning so at bedtime I reminded him but he REALLY wanted some milk. So I told him he could have each side for the count of 10, went really well. This morning we had the following conversation:
Me: Now remember, we are only going to have milk once a day now. Do you want milk now or at bedtime?
Me: Ok, do you want to get up and get a banana?
DS: No, I want milk.
Me: We just talked about this, we are only going to have milk once a day now. Do you want it now or at bedtime?
Me: Ok, let's get out of your training pants and use the potty. (We get back from the bathroom and he gets up in my bed like he's going to have milk). What do you want to do now?
DS: Have milk.
Me: Ok, so do you want milk now or at bedtime?
DS: I want milk now.
I thought it was pretty amusing :) Hopefully he will remember our conversation tonight.
