Yesterday Jack abruptly went from nursing at least four times a day to refusing to nurse at all. What is up with such abrupt weaning??? More oddly, Hannah also abruptly weaned herself when I was 30 weeks pregnant with Jack – maybe something major happens exactly at 30 weeks since yesterday was the 30 week mark for this pregnancy? I’m a little sad (and slightly uncomfortable!) that he quit so suddenly, but I guess my baby boy is growing up!
As I vacuumed today I calculated that I have been pregnant and/or breastfeeding for the past 44 months. I’ll be pregnant with Sarah for another 2-3 months, and then assuming she nurses at least a year, I could top 60 months! Five solid years! Isn’t that wild? It’s not a contest or anything, I’m just amazed at what the human body can do.
