    Nice job on communicating with your dh in no uncertain terms!
    I'm glad you're feeling better.
    Remember to continue taking it easy for a couple of days.

    A few of my favorite things that I've discovered on the forum: co-sleeping, baby-wearing, tandem nursing, baby-led solids, cloth diapering, APing, selective vaccination...the list goes on

    I feel for ya! I had my first case a couple of weeks ago and it completely knocked me out! My doc called in the same antibiotic you had, and I continued to nurse with no problems. Although I think it did affect my supply also. I found that a heating pad really helped with the pain, as well as tylenol or ibuprofen.

    I completely empathize about your DH! Mine was up against a deadline at work, and I had to ask him to stay home to help, and we only have 1 5 month old! And then I felt guilty for putting him behind!

    Hopefully you'll feel better soon!
