Well, my breast pump has officially been retired. In hopes of avoiding engorgement next week, I am slowly dropping one feed at a time. The pump was the first to go. I have gone all week without pumping and so far, I’m not in terrible pain. I have only had one random letdown, right in the middle of lunch! LOL Thank goodness, I still use my breast pads. This weekend I will only do night feedings and then Monday morning I will nurse my little one one more time. It brings tears to my eyes just typing that. I truly expect that it will be rough but Hubby is very good about helping out during this situations. I hope that he will allow me to snuggle with him without getting too upset.
I think I will ask Buggy out on a dinner tonight since I may not feel up to it over the next few weeks. I always love when we have “Date Night” even though we go to McDonald’s, Burger King or Friendly’s…not the healthiest of choices. We have great conversations and sometimes even head to the bookstore just to look. I will definitely need to get a Date Night in this weekend, for sure.
