I feel like a complete zombie.
My boobs feel like they’ve doubled in size and are about to go pop. I’m trying to alternate the boob I use for each feed – although greedy guts tends to feed from both on one feed (she has a break during the feed and then wants more so to give myself some relief on the other side I use the opposite).
It’s funny how you forget things. I had completely forgotten the pain you get when your milk flows in or when it’s close to feeding time. I’ve been so tempted to express a bit just for comfort but I don’t want to waste any precious milk especially as it dried up for me with P1 after a month.
I’ve done a lot since the birth of P2. Been visiting relatives, had a trip to kiddicare (although I didn’t leave the car), and I’ve even been to Mothercare and she isn’t even a week old yet! I know I need to slow down and take everyone’s advice on resting but it’s so hard when you have another child too… I want to get up, mobile and back to normal as soon as I can. But I’m exhausting myself and I know that. Time for a step back and to focus on getting my body back to normal before I over do it and go bang.
