AF came on Saturday and it is kicking my butt this month! Saturday and Sunday, I tried to pump like normal (I did my best with a fussy baby!) but yesterday and today... Yesterday I only pumped once (I did manually express during the day) and today I've only pumped once so far. I've been out all day (with family so I couldn't sneak away to pump as they don't know about my relactation) and DS just went down for sleep.
So, have I really undone all my hard work or can I just trick my body into maybe a 'nursing strike'? I have still be taking herbs so I'm not completely off the map. I plan to pump pump pump tonight (I will be pumping every 2-3 hours around the clock for the next 2-4 days to try to make up for this!) and hope for the best.
I feel so guilty. Sunday, I slacked off pumping because I really needed to sleep... I was so tired. Then Monday, I slacked off pumping because again, I was mega tired (Dh and I were up too late the night before... OOPS!) and Caleb was fussy. I just worry that I've undone everything I've worked so hard for!
Someone please tell me that I didn't mess everything up! I'm sure I can get my progress back if I strictly pump every 2-3 hours over the next few days... Right?
