DS3 is two days old now and still in the NICU. Whenever I nurse or pump, I get really painful cramps that eventually get so bad I have to stop. I only last maybe ten minutes at a time. I even get crampy in my legs, which has me worried about blood clots. Anyway, I've always had oversupply issues in the past, so I'm not too worried about the very short nursing/pumping sessions. I'm just hoping it will be better once we can get Coby home and I can nurse laying down so there's not as much pressure on my abdomen. But for now, I have to be sitting because there are no beds in the NICU.
But in the meantime, do any of you ladies have any tricks for maybe easing the cramping somehow? I can't even hold Coby for very long at a time, because the pressure he puts on my middle eventually causes my legs to cramp up and I have to get up and take a walk.
