    Default I think I'm done

    After exclusively pumping for 17 months, I think I am finally done. I haven't pumped for about 3 days but my breasts are still really soft. I am 7.5 weeks pregnant and my milk supply already really took a dive so I took that as a sign to stop. Luckily DS is still getting some mommy milk since I have a huge freezer stash.

    I never thought I would make it this long! In the beginning I never saw making it past the week in front of me, and I never thought in a million years that I would pump past a year!

    Thanks to all you ladies for all your support! And I am so glad that I know where to go for help for the next baby. And I am looking forward to nursing the new baby. I really don't want to EP again!

    Way to go, mama!!! You should be SOOOO incredibly proud of yourself for EPing for so long!! You probably don't know what to do with all your new-found time that you previously spent pumping!! Congrats again, on such selfless dedication to your LO and on the pregnancy!!!
