Things were going so well. I was dealing with OALD, and we changed positions, and DD learned how to swallow faster (I think...), and I would take her off to let down into a towel. She has been gaining weight so well, and she has even lost some of her congestion!!
Well, today is not so great. I've felt feverish all day, and I thought I was getting sick. But then I felt my breast and I have a REALLY sore spot on the bottom of just the right one. The left one has gone down almost completely, it feels now like it did pre-delivery.
But the right one is huge, and it hurts like heck. I've read the thread on kellymom about it, and I'm drinking lots of water, and resting. I still feel feverish -- chills, headache, etc. I told my DH and MIL that I'm going to need extra lots of help tonight...I can feed her, but I don't feel up to doing anything else. I feel like a horrible mom. Just when everything was going better :'(
Probably that and the PP hormones are making me all teary. I just want to BF my daughter, why does it have to be this hard????
I don't really think I need any advice, although if you have any other suggestions that aren't on Kellymom, they're welcome . I just need a shoulder. I'm going to do what I have to do to give my daughter the best nutrition/bonding possible, but I'm just feeling down.
Thanks for listening.
