I will say that by the time I weaned DS1 I had no milk left so it might have made it easier but instead of nursing him to sleep I started just rocking him to sleep and that worked just fine. It was a much smoother transition than I had expected. I hope your new pregnancy is much easier than your first and you have a healthy little babe in 9 months

Kayla.....omg omg omg.....I am so over the moon happy for you on getting pregnant. As for the weaning thing i am so sorry you have to wean Jordan now. I am not sure if you do but keep us posted. You are the 3rd person today that i was told was pg. I guess they come in 3's. Anyway so excited for you guys. I think Naya is starting to wean herself but thats a whole other post.
Thank you all so much for the support. I've been reading your responses from my phone all this time. It's helpful to know that others understand that weaning can be an emotional thing.
I'm still nursing Jordan at nap time and bedtime. I'm only nursing on one side though, instead of both sides each time like before. She seems to have adjusted well. I think I will continue to nurse her through my first trimester like so many of you seemed to think would be okay. I have an OB appointment on Friday so I will discuss it with my doctor but I feel like I've sort of made up m mind that I will not stop ANY sooner.
I know I need to remember to be proud that we have made it this far. My first short term goal was one year and we made that goal. Then it was 18 months and we made it to that too. It doesn't look like we will make it to 2 but I will come to terms with it. Maybe I can even learn to appreciate the break before starting all over with a newborn? Maybe.
KAYLA!!!!! Congrats girl!!!!!!! Awesome news!!!!!!
Sorry you're having trouble with the weaning. It's not a bad thing to want to keep doing it - you've done an incredible job!!!!
