I love my babies. 2014 is the year I'm gonna love my body, too! Here is a play by play of the past 5 years, most of which I have spent pregnant, breastfeeding, or pregnant AND breastfeeding. It's taken a toll on my body.
2009-I spent most of the year pregnant.
2010-I spent the whole year breastfeeding.
2011-I spent the beginning of the year pregnant AND breastfeeding. Then just pregnant. Then just breastfeeding. THAT was a crazy year!
2012- I spent the entire year breastfeeding.
2013- Still breastfeeding (until November).
It's funny that the last post I made was about breastfeeding a toddler, and Opal spontaneously decided to stop breastfeeding around Thanksgiving. She's asked for a booby only once since then. Bittersweet. I still feel drops of milk leaking out every now and then though. Guess I could always be a wet nurse!
So that is almost 5 years of baby, baby, baby! And 2014 is the year that I don't have a baby IN me or ON me (in the nursing sense:). Woo-hoo. I do a lot of calculating of the months I spent pregnant/breastfeeding and just amazes me what our bodies go through for our babies. I spent 40 months breastfeeding! 40! That is like three and a half years! Crazy to me. So, here's to ME in 2014!!! (knock on wood!)
