It's been roughly 37 weeks since we figured out
I can not have dairy when I am nursing a baby.
Its been a rough 37 weeks.
I love dairy products
all my favorite foods (and I have lots of 'em) include dairy.
Its a sacrifice I gladly make for the comfort of my child
(and everyone else living with said child....)
BUT - unlike some sacrifices we make for our children,
this one has an end in sight.
Last night, for the first time in over 8 months,
I had cheese with dinner!
and then, I panicked,
cause in addition to the cheese,
I had beans - and more than the tablespoon I usually eat.
how I was I going to know if it was the cheese or the beans that caused trouble?
except for some mild hiccups, there was no trouble!
LilyPie went to bed earlier than normal, slept her usual 10 hours,
and woke up being her happy self!
Now, I'm not going to go hog-wild or anything but its nice to know
I can cautiously add back in some of my favorite foods!
