Probably TMI, but what's new?

If the word 'engorgement' sends you running for the hills, you might want to pack a cooler and go camping. Right. now.

Lefty has gone beyond giving me fits to being downright (can't think of the appropriate boobie explitive but if I could or if you have one, enter it here).

I woke up early yesterday morning to pump with a searing pain and following had a walnut sized lump leftover. Only after deep, painful massage and a hot shower was I able to relieve some of the pressure. There is something just wrong, wrong, wrong about bruised boobies.

At first they were a novelty. I never had 'em before, but I. am. so. over. them. I'll happily go back to my A-.
Ta ta tatas.

Mark your calendar.

Bonfire and sweet hallelujah singing to the heavens.
Bring all your nursing bras, hooter hiders, and anything labeled Madela. I'll supply the gasoline and matches.

Pumping is a pain. For reals. I'm sitting here pumping. That's how I know. Sucky. No sucky is why I'm pumping. Ironic, isn't it?

I'm spending the weekend nursing my nursers. Lame.

That's all I have to say about that.

Earlier this week husband let me know that my pump reminds him of a movie. It used to be one of my favorites. Used to be.

Yanette, that is funny and disturbing. I was happy to stop pumping at 1 year. I got mastitis once, plugged milk ducts like you probably have right now many times. Still haven't kicked the nursing tho--

Hugs about the engorgement and plugged and painful ducts. I had lots of plugged ducts and it hurts so bad. It is so not fun.
