I can't wait for it to be done yet sad for when it comes to an end.
Have you ever felt that way about something or when doing something? Its so annoying doing it yet you don't want it to end, that's how I feel about breastfeeding.
It's so annoying to find time throughout the day to pump and then make sure that the bottles are clean, and more. You see my job requires me to be on the road traveling to and from clients. I spend most of my time on the road and when I'm not on the road I'm in an office full of other people. Super ideal when you're breastfeeding and need to pump.
This is the part where I can't wait for it to be over. The frustration piece of it all is making sure that you're in private nobody can see you. Oh and yes I've mastered the ability to pump while driving, I know it's not the safest. I wonder what people think when they drive by me.
But the other side of me is going to be sad the day that it comes to an end. I breastfed all for my children and I'm on my last one, my daughter who is almost 7 months today.
I've personally enjoyed every moment of breastfeeding. Something about motherhood and being able to provide and nurture your child is a connection that only you as a mother can have. Although the pressure is on knowing that I'm the one that needs to wake up in the middle of the night to soothe her, it also gives me more special one on one time with her. Deep down I it gives me a sense of pride knowing that I'm the only one who can help her.
We are at that seven-month mark where my body is starting to adjust and not produce as much as milk as I hoped, it saddens me to know the end is near.
I'm going to enjoy the moments that I have left breastfeeding, I got to enjoy it over the past six years and knowing that it will soon be o r forever it saddens me, but excited for the future.
