Aisley May will be 8 weeks on on Thursday! she is about 11lbs now. She is such a great easy baby. We are still breastfeeding despite all the hang ups. We are finally shield free! but not without serious work and frustration. She does super well during the day, but night time is difficult and it takes her like 30 minutes to get going and be content.
I have been experience this shooting throbbing pain for a good 4-5 weeks now and this past week it has gotten much much worse. After getting some advice from friends, i explained to them the pain and what was happening, I was told to look into vasospasms.
my nipples turn white and purple, I have bulging veins, and this pain is shooting through my breast after she eats, her latch does not hurt, we,, just that forst second, but otherwise no pain there. letdown had been killing me for weeks, but the past 2 days that seems to have stopped as the other pain got stronger and more constant.
I called the doctor but I have to wait for my insurance card before they will see me. So in the meantime, im just going to work on her getting a deeper latch, she tends to slip off and clamp down, and i'll just take a pain med once a day. hot compresses are said to help as well.
in other news, I have NOT started christmas shopping yet! im nuts! im starting tomorrow alone, and thursday hubby and I are taking Aisley to the maill to see santa while the boys have school.
and if that wasnt stressful enough, we host an xmas eve party and i havent shopped for that yet either!
thats all from me sorry im so MIA.
