I woke up this morning with what certainly feels like a case of mastitis/milk fever. I'm familiar with the process, but I've never had it BEFORE the babies arrived. I'm due at the end of November, so with about 8 weeks to go, I didn't expect to deal with the engorged, painful, leaking boobs yet. I have hot, painful lumps on the right breast, and a feeling of general flu-like achiness and fever.
So, I'm drinking hot herbal tea, have hot compresses and Tylenol on board, and I'm sitting around topless expressing milk. It's a shame there's no hungry babies around- I seem to have PLENTY to go around.
Speaking of hungry babies- Alienbaby is getting huge. This means that Mommy eats everything in sight- double bacon cheeseburgers from Wendy's have been a favorite lately. Also, jalapeno cornbread with applesauce, chips and salsa, chips and applesauce, cheesecake, corndogs with applesauce, applesauce, peanut butter bread with apples, cheese with apples/applesauce, spaghetti, bread and butter, steak, baked potatoes, mashed potatoes with cheese and garlic toast, applesauce, and oh, yes, applesauce.
I don't, as a general rule, eat a quart of applesauce every two days, or even eat apples very often. Apparently, I'm giving birth to the carnivorous Irish reincarnation of Johnny Appleseed.
