6 Weeks

I went to the doctor this week about getting off my meds, and it is going to take 6 weeks to be med free. My doctor felt that because of the dosage I was on and for the length of time I was on them, it would be best to slowly wean me off them, which is just fine with me. I was kind of surprised, as I thought he would have me done in a couple of weeks, but I totally trust his recommendation. I have been on half my normal dose for a couple of days now and haven't noticed even the slightest difference, which is great news. I just hope it continues to go this smoothly. Honestly, I think it will. I went my whole life without being on antidepressants, and the only reason I went on them a year ago is because I was having a hard time with Post Partum Depression.

As for life lately, well it has just been plain busy. I am definitely not on the blogs as much anymore, but I do catch up whenever I get the chance. I have taken the pressure off of myself to read each and every single update on both of my blogs, as well as my need to post frequently. If I don't feel like getting on to post or read one day, I don't. It has been so nice to allow myself to enjoy life without adding stress of keeping up on 85+ blogs and posting on 2. And honestly, I don't think anyone really notices all that much. They might think, "Hey, she hasn't commented on my blog for a few days," but I doubt any of you get upset about it. I know I don't when it goes the other way. I just figure you are living life, and you'll catch up when you have time. I do still have nights where I tell my husband I want to blog after we put the baby to bed, and he is okay with that as long as he gets the majority of my nights all to himself.

Not much has been going on lately. I'm just waiting for AF to rear next week, and then its full tilt to baby production for the first time in over 2 years. I am excited and hopeful to be back in the game. I've been gearing up and lining out battle plans. DH is aware of his responsibilities in this task. I told him just when and how many times he will need to perform, and I have given him plenty of notice so he won't have any excuses when the time comes. I've been trying to pump him up. lol

That's it on my end. I hope ya'll are doing great!

I'm so excited for you to get back in the game. Let's face it, you guys make beautiful babies. I hope the weaning of the meds go well and you see no side affects.

I agree with you about the whole blogging thing. Do it when you have time. The world's not going to end if you don't do it every day or don't leave a comment. Spending time with your family and the things that make you happy are more important.

Hey hon, I think it's great that the doc is being cautious and taking the time to get you off the meds properly. You sound like you'll be fine :)
LOL @ your "battle plan" that DH has been informed of!!
Thanks for your comment-the "note to AF" made me smile. Didn't make the beep rear her ugly head though!!
