Re: Involution and discomfort
You can PM me if you like.
If I private message a link to pics...does anyone know if they could tell me if it at least looks like colostrum or something else on my nipple when I pumped?
I really doubt it.
But, do you think that asking her if she wants to nurse again could be negative to her since she is finally doing ok without it?
I think that is true. It's just really early to expect things to be better!
I was told that when my levels are regulated I should feel better
Before you do this, talk to your doctor. You want to know how much they need and what sort of container they'd like to have it in.
In order to get more of that stuff I will need to pump again I think. I can try to hand express but it is easier with the pump on low. Would the doctor send the specimen for testing...what do I put it on/in... a baggie?
High prolactin after weaning could indicate a health problem that would warrant further investigation by your doctor. You can read up on all the scary possibilities here: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperprolactinaemia
And, what will the prolactin levels tell me?
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
