WEAN : to withdraw (a person, the affections, one's dependency, etc.) from some object, habit, form of enjoyment, or the like: The need to reduce had weaned us from rich desserts.

It has been exactly 3 weeks since I was weaned off of these 2 PRECIOUS THINGS....Man they made a GOOD COUPLE...I drank about a pot before 11am every day for years.I had MASSIVE headaches for about a week and a 1/2. But I did it.

Now for my next 2 things which I WILL HOLD ON TO until the Dr. "Officially" tells me -NO MORE!

I have HORRIBLE allergies. I'm allergic to EVERYTHING and have been taking my allergy meds for YEARS!!! It is the "D" (decongestant) in the medicine that no pregnant woman should take. Due to my allergies......I have MAJOR SINUS HEADACHES! I take Ibuprofen about 3 times a day. If I don't, I'm a GRUMPY MOMMY & WIFE for my head THROBS & THROBS! I thought the acupuncture & regular chiropractic visits would take the headaches totally away and it HAS helped.

Lord, please help me to stay healthy without these 2 medicines. You know I don't want to do ANYTHING that would harm the embies. But I am so scared of what will happen if I stop taking them. Please help my headaches to subside without these 2 medicines if that is what the Dr. advises. Give him the wisdom to know what to do to help me with my headaches and allergies. And please make Jen be right and bless us with the twins she is so sure we are going to have. AMEN.

5 MORE BCP's and I'm on my way!!!!


  1. I can hardly wait until we are sitting around with our 4 DE babies and enjoying the coffee with full creamer again!!!! Hugs to you!!!

  2. I quit the coffee mate a while ago, but only because (1) it got up to $4 a bottle (highway robbery) and (2) the list of ingredients made me realize that no matter how yummy it tastes, it is full of sythetic crap that I really don't want in my body. HOWEVER, I did not quit coffee. Ohhh, no. I am permitted one cup a day. But I use half a cup of skim milk, treated with cinnamon and organic sugar, then I add half a cup of coffee to it and stir. Repeat. This means I actually drink 2 cups of beverage (but only 1 cup of coffee), and don't feel the least bit deprived!

  3. Wow! Our cycles are super close! I hear you about allergies. I went off my meds about 2 weeks ago(have been on them for years) and it's KILLING me! But, I keep thinking of the long-term goal of a healthy baby.
