Thread: My Pump Is Talking To Me...

    Default My Pump Is Talking To Me...

    Just a little humorous post....

    I swear my pump is talking to me. You know how sometimes when you're on a long drive, you look up at the sky and you find the shapes of things in the clouds...you might see an elephant, even though noone else sees an elephant in that cloud. Well, that's what is happening with my pump. It talks to me. Depending on the speed, it says something different. Yesterday, at work, I was pumping and it was saying "I don't like pork. I don't like pork. I don't like pork." The day before, it was saying "Oprah. Oprah. Oprah." I'm not kidding.

    Am I hearing voices or does anyone else share this experience? If so, what funny things has your pump been saying to you??

    Nora told me my pump said, "whats up, what's up, what's up."

    I used to hear my pump talk to me also! It actually made my pumping time go faster listening to it talk and wondering what it was going to say each day! Too funny!

    cause it did?

    Mine used to say many different things, one of which was "paint it black, paint it black" I always wondered exactly what needed to be painted black.

    You guys are cracking me up. I'm tempted to pull out my pump to see what it sounds like it's saying to me.

    With my first- whenever I would pump DH's frog would start croaking. With the twins I rented a pump. I named him Juan. I figured anyone/thing that was spending that much time sucking on my boobs needed a name.

    All over the world there exists in every society a small group of women who feel themselves strongly attracted to giving care to other women during pregnancy and childbirth. Failure to make use of this group of highly motivated people is regrettable and a sin against the principle of subsidiary. ~ Dr. Kloosterman, Chief of OB/GYN, Univ. of Amsterdam, Holland
