side effect

I just realized that the side effect of her not waking up to nurse 50 times a night is...

engorgement. and leakage.

Ah, the leakage. I remember once just hearing a baby cry in the grocery store and my shirt was soaking wet. I gotta say, I don't miss that part. You're body should adjust pretty quick though.

Ouch ouch ouch. I used to spring a leak in the middle of 2nd period.

I was wondering how that was going to go. You might have to bring your pump along with you to the Poconos. I had to pump just to prevent mastitis when I left Dermot for 2 nights when he was 14 months. It was kind of liberating to pump and dump instead of having to count every half ounce. The worst part is that night is when we are most productive, so sleeping through the night can really confuse supply. I hope that your body adjusts soon.

In my day the Doctors had you bind at night. But I would think that would be a very non-SEXY anniversary trip!

Oooh, that's no good.

i'm suspecting that engorged in this case is not very harlequinesque? dammit now you've ruined my trashy romance novels. heh

Yeah, the engorgement and leakage definitely sucks. Glad you're getting more sleep though. I'm a cranky bitch when I don't get enough sleep, so I spent a good 5 years of Kiri's life grinding my teeth and muttering under my breath.
