    Anna - that's wonderful! I think you are going to be living in the exact right place for you!!

    okay I just thought of another one...

    I've read that you can go a long time without having a period when you're nursing. Does that mess up your hormones or cause any issues I might need to know about?

    Nope. And just think about how great it would be not to get your period for a long time.

    If you think about it this way - we are feeding our babies the way nature intended - doesn't it seem like anything that happens as a result is because it's supposed to be that way? It helps to naturally space children out.

    that's so NOT an issue with me. No period sounds great to me, I just wondered if it caused mood swings or anything so I'm not surprised.
