I weaned my 2nd daughter very gradually, after 7.5 yrs of nursing (initially daughter one, then tandem, then only daughter 2.) We basically quit in August of 2008, although it was down to 1 time a day before that for awhile. Anyway, I'm 38 and have recently felt some hormone changes the last 2 months. Then this month, right at about ovulation time, I had/have very tender breasts, and fibrous lumps (sore!) Fibrous breast tissue runs in our family, but I never had the swelling and lumps before. I'm wondering if the nursing kept it at bay or something for 7.5 yrs? Anyway, I'm so glad to find this thread. I'm still trying to find out more info (definitely not pregnant) but it's so nice to hear that others have experienced changes, too. It just seemed weird to be 4-6 months after weaning.
