I am in the throes of this dilemma now, and was about to post a new thread when I saw yours! No advice here, just commisseration.
I am mom to a 21 month old boy who loves to nurse, and I'm 17 weeks pregnant. I never thought I'd do anything but child-led weaning, but pregnancy has changed all that. I'm experiencing a lot of discomfort with nursing and also feel like I could use a break before starting again with babe #2. However, in my heart I feel that my son is not ready to stop nursing. Most of the times that I try to put off nursing and/or distract him from nursing become major outcries. I think it's partially the age, but he also has an expectation to be nursed on demand. Weaning seems impossible for him, but what I feel like I need.
Only time will tell. We're moving in two weeks, too!
Good luck, and I'd love to hear about your process as it evolves.
