I made it! Whooo.
After several nights of the 3 minute pump I decided to skip last night and see how it went. I had everything set up in the basement just in case I were to wake in the middle of the night again. I didn’t! I woke around 4:30 but was still okay, when Nate got up at 7:50 I was very uncomfortable but I did it! I am super engorged now, even after his first feeding but I image that will last for a while until I stop making that evening pump amount. I can deal, it’s not that bad. The bummer is my appointment for my bridesmaid dress alterations is tomorrow which means I wont be able to zip it up all the way, embarrassing!
I’m not as freaked out about actually weaning him now, I know it will be harder than coming off the pump but I think I will survive it now. I plan on starting the third week in September and finishing up the week of his Birthday. I am sure it will make for some crazy lady posts. Everyone promises its mood swing city while your body adjusts. I imagine I will cope with cookies.
Speaking of cookies! Have you seen the new Banana Oreo! Umm, seemed like a good idea but, not so much. Its like a banana laffy taffy in the middle, aftertaste and all. Gah. I won’t let them go to waste or anything, they’re still cookies.
Edit: It is 12:45, am dying waiting for next feeding. Whaaaa!
Edit 2: Its 10 minutes from Nathan’s bedtime and I am not sure if I will make it much longer- seriously considering pumping for a few minutes before he eats to find some comfort- afraid that pumping will ruin a full day of “progress.”—- E3-I didn’t, he ate a TON and I feel better. We’ll see how I do overnight, I’m sure you are on pins and needles awaiting the update. Man, is a wonder anyone reads this garbage!
