Has the battle been won?

I am now down to nursing Ant only two times per day, first thing in the morning and right before bed.

I am enjoying the 'freedom' of being able to wear real bras again. I had been using just a light sports-bra type of nursing bra, I hated the ones with all the levers and switches to undo the cup for BFing. And I've never been terribly well endowed (I think I was probably a C- at my absolute biggest, sniff), so minimal support was just fine. But that did mean that I was constantly on 'high-beam', just a tad embarassing!

And freedom from pumping at work is heavenly - not only in the extra time that is freed up, which isn't all that significant, but also in my reduced frustration levels. All in all, a good thing.

The best part, by far, is that I'm actually starting to have a bit of CM when I wipe. In fact, more than just a bit. I might even say prodigious amounts! AND, my libido is finally waking up after having been missing basically since Ant was conceived. (I was hoping to be one of those lucky women who gets to be super-horny during pregnancy - um, NOT!) So I'm thinking, hoping, wishing that perhaps I'll actually ovulate all on my own, and see that magical Crimson Bitch in a few weeks?!?!?! I'm so excited!

Strangely, I'm excited too for you to get your period. How weird is that?

Ditto! LOL

Hey, can you email me (link is in my profile) re: birth control, natural planning, etc? Thanks.

That is hysterical! Could you imagine a non-IFer ever getting excited for a period? I hope your body surprises you -- in good ways this time around!

I'm glad that things are going well. I'm hoping to have Mae down to two nursing sessions sometime soon so your post gives me hope. The thought of wearing regular bras makes me giddy. The thought of my libido returning makes dh giddy.
