I've made a decision

I've stopped with the crappy mini pill as I got a (TMI) massive blister on my..erm.."area" from having to wear pads all the time. It hurt so much I can't stand the constant bleeding any more so I've stopped. Anyway, this means I need a different (combi) pill which means I will have to stop BF. I can't get to the docs this week so I'm super busy so it will have to be next week. So I only have one more week of BFing then I'll be done. We are down to morning nursing only and he does love his morning snuggles, and so do I. I'm really sad but my goal was a year and I'm nearly there (just 2 weeks away once I stop) but it just means my baby is no longer a baby and I do love BFing. I was upset when I stopped with DS1 but I knew I would have another baby....this time no more babies so no more BF Sad

I'm crying now I've typed this..UGH, I'm such a sap!!

Aww you need to do what's good for you as well as Tobey. You got so close to a year and that is awesome. Hope the change in pill sort the issues out. I had the same issue when I first went on the pill and mine only lasted three weeks but that sucked so you have done so well putting up with it for so long

Congrats on making your goal. There is nothing wrong with your decision, and you've done wonderfully! I can completely understand why you'd be sad about it though, so go ahead and cry. It's an amazing accomplishment to BF that long.

And who knows, maybe you can still talk your DH into one more later on. Biggrin
