  1. We are done! I am excited in that I have my body to myself--pg with with the twins was hard (hee hee, my big body had a mind of its own) and then I went into exclusively nursing them (minus the first two weeks were they each got one night time bottle of formula), up until this last Friday! Friday I came down with a fever and felt really dehydrated Sat morning. I figured I won't nurse them (we were down to only that a.m. feeding), and they didn't really ask for it either.... So, a couple of days shy of them turning eighteen months we are finished. As much as I am happy, I am also a little sad, because they are my babies, and who knows if what will be (hey, it took 6 IVFs, and several losses until I had my girls).... I wish we can have more babies....

    I have to say thank you to you guys who made it possible for me go at this for as long as I did! You guys really rocked, I remember that first week was horrible, and you guys always wrote back with encouragement and support, thank you a million times! Gosh, I dealt with latch issues, sleepy newborns who needed to be awoken & stimulated to eat, cracked extremely painful nipples that caused me to cry (more painful than my c-section wound!), multiple painful clogs, several rounds of thrush, nursing strikes, dairy intolerance (had to cut dairy out for a while).... I am so grateful to have made it this long, when in the beginning that one month goal seemed like an eternity! I think it was a miracle and the encouragement that I got from you guys and DH, of course!

    Thank you!

  2. Congratulations Lotus...what a great job!

    I am the same way, feeling bittersweet with my little boy just 17 months old...we finished about four weeks ago.

    Its great to feel proud of ourselves and this is just the place to do it!
    Well done
