It hurts so much here too!
I NEVER EVER considered weaning intentionally, not EVER, but Oh. My. God.
DS is almost 3 1/2, and usually only nurses once or twice a day, but the last two days he asked for milkies, I actually asked him if he wouldn't rather have water. He seemed grumpy about it, but accepted the water.
The other thing is, I never experienced any nausea while pregnant with him, and never had any with this pregnancy either, except I have noticed a correlation between nursing DS and nausea. I have hardly been able to eat anything the last three days, and have been throwing up, and this was after two days of sucking it up and nursing him as much as he wanted. I am SO TORN.
I'm nervous the nursing is affecting the pregnancy because I'm not eating, though still drinking fluids and taking prenatal vitamins.
Those mamas who have done this before... does the pain go away? I feel like if I knew it would end with the first trimester, I would just suck it up and do it, because I SO SO SO believe in child led weaning... but I don't know if I can do this for 7 1/2 more months.
I am SO conflicted right now. I am also working full-time (DH is a SAHD), and I don't know what to do. I would LOVE to tandem nurse, and the thought of NOT nursing DS is heart-breaking... I guess I just need tips and support... anyone?????
