Female Trouble (but entirely unlike anything John Waters)


My boob is sore. You see, my milk supply had begun to dwindle, because I had cut out an evening feeding and the nighttime feedings. So, I reintroduced the 5 PM feeding just for a couple days to boost output. Well, it worked so last night I got over full and now, I think I have a blocked duct. I can alleviate this with warm compresses and massage. But in the meantime, it’s annoying and makes me cranky.

On the mini pill + breastfeeding = no pregnancy. But I am tired and my back hurts. EITHER, I am somehow a medical marvel OR I have been sleeping like crap, going to bed late, and using poor posture when on the elliptical. I’ve not had any nausea and the sleepiness is not like before. When I was pregnant with Elliot, I passed out on the couch as soon as I got home and could not physically move my limbs without momentous effort. This is not the same. This is, “It’s 10:30 and I’m kind of bored. Yeah, I could sleep.”

I am going to the doctor tomorrow for my annual so any and all possible issues will be cleared up. I do and do not look forward to it.

Aren’t you glad I shared this with you? Admit it.
