So I've been gradually beginning to wean my almost 18 month old. We had some out if town family visiting for an extended stay about 1 1/2 months ago. He was so excited during that time that some days he went from early morning to 4-5pm before asking to nurse!
Now that they are gone he's back to his old self, but that dip in feedings was enough to bring back my dreadful period!! Simultaneously I've been going nuts at night due to the incessant night feedings. We are gradually night weaning thanks to my amazing DH who gives him love and comfort between (roughly) 12-5am.
So months ago I contacted my midwife about getting on the mini pill. She was away and asked me to follow up a month later but I had a lot going on and it went on the back burner. With my period coming by surprise I got my wake up call!!!
The thing is, I'm almost two weeks post period. Do I wait til my next cycle to start taking it as recommended? Or mess with my cycle and start right away? Also, if I wait until my next cycle I know putting myself at risk for pregnancy! Not the most terrible thing in the world, but we do have our hands full with three boys (5.5, 3.5, 17.5 mo) and we could use a little break!!!
