I'm weaning Henry right now.

I'm excited to have my body back to myself but I'm sad to loose our special time that we get from nursing. I will say the least exciting part about weaning is the hormone changes! Dealing with postpartum anxiety has been less than fun (although in the scope of postpartum concerns I'm very thankful that my challenges have been mild). Weaning brings it all back in full force.

I've always been sensitive to hormone changes. I've never been able to use hormone birth conrol without psychological/emotional changes. It feels almost familiar to me to be a slave to my ever shifting hormone levels. Is it over yet?

Are you still taking those meds for the Post-partum anxiety? Can you up the dose until the weaning process is over or will that not help? I don't know much about that stuff but hope it is an easy process for both you and Henry!
