Re: 9 weeks and still hurting
It sounds like you are experiencing some oversupply. Getting engorged every 2 hours must be tough, and making so much milk can certainly contribute to frequent plugs!
When you're with your baby, are you using both breasts at feedings? How are her poops- is she having yellow, seedy/curdy poops, or greenish watery ones?
Every time you get engorged and then pump to the point of feeling emptied out, you're telling your body "Keep up the good work, make the same amount again!" So one way to cope with oversupply is to pump less, perhaps just enough to relieve discomfort, but not much more than that. When your body detects extra milk sitting in the breast, it thinks "Time to slow down and produce less! The baby isn't drinking all this milk."
A soy lecithin supplement may help cope with the plugged ducts.
