After a week of crummy weather and storm fronts, my migraines have been off the charts. I actually came home from work early yesterday afternoon because I thought my head was going to fall off if I stared at the computer any longer.
Matthew has been encouraging me for weeks to start weaning so I could take my migraine medicine again.
But I am stubborn.
And I have grown to love breastfeeding.
However, I am sacrificing too much quality time with Elias by being drugged on vicodin (the only pain medicine I can take) and being in pain.
So last night I didn’t nurse.
It was hard.
But it made it easier that I was in a lot of pain and half asleep from the vicodin…
I just went back to this post and read your tips. It seems like the biggest tip is to do it gradually, so that is what I am going to do. Hopefully within a couple weeks I won’t be nursing anymore and will be able to start taking my medications again… and be able to be a better mommy and wife!
