I'm 4 months pregnant with my first and I really, really, really want to BF. I am reading as much as I can about it and trying to prepare myself as much as possible. I am even planning to attend my local LLL monthly meetings (and drag DH along if he's willing).
The only thing is…I am scared to death . I have read/heard so many horror stories about how hard it is, cracked and bloody nipples, frustrated and depressed mommies . Frankly, I'm freaked out.
Are there any happy or relatively happy first time BF stories out there? Or am I pretty much relegated to weeks/months of suffering before baby and I can enjoy the experience?
Needing some reassurance...
