Trying to be Dolly!

ok I know this picture is in poor taste. Oh well. But it proves a point by visual. I this week was in my own personal booby hell. I have been weaning Nicholas but since the day of his party, I cut him off completely.

I guess I am a over producer of milk. So by the end of the night I was resembling the ladies above. Yeah it was sickening to see how far one's skin can stretch. I was in pain I was moody. I could not be touched even putting a shirt on was painful. This lasted all week long. After many suggestions and my own knowledge of all things boobs. I tried cabbage leaves, sudafed, cold compresses, hand expressing enough to stop the stinging. I tried it all. I still felt like I was smuggling two rocks in my very tight fitting bra.

I finally broke down and asked one of the Doc's what else? He suggested a medication which inhibits the production of milk. So thankfully with connections, and Doc's at my beck and call. I got me a script for the medicine. I am feeling much better but a week of rocks can kill a gal.

I hear ya! I nursed all 3 kids. I just took it very slowly in the end weeks and it was quite so miserable. I hope your feeling better so you can enjoy your trip!

Candy said...

Ugh, I know your pain. That is the worst. Glad you got the hook up and are feeling better.
