I guess this is just a vent...I feel pretty sorry for myself about right now. My fever's 102, I feel like I have the flu, and I can't even go see my baby I feel so awful. And of course it is the weekend so I can't get in to see a doctor until hopefully tomorrow - at which point I will still have to take my feverish self and three little kids downtown to the appointment. I guess I should count myself lucky that this is the fourth child I have nursed and the first time I have got this, because it really stinks! Everything was going so well too. I felt great, Katy was nursing well, and I thought she might be home as early as Monday or Tuesday. Now I'm sick as a dog, and when I called to check on her they said she had stopped eating and was back on a feeding tube. So she just bought herself like another week. She's full term now too, and looks great other than her eating issues.

Aw, I hope you feel better soon. I never had mastitis with Brennan, but I've had it twice now with Jamie (and had all the flu-like symptoms both times). I started pumping after the second time I got it and haven't had it since. Not sure if the pumping is helping or if it's just coincidence...? Anyway, I know exactly how you feel, so I really hope you feel better soon!!

I hope you feel better soon. I had horrible mastitis with Cooper before he started nursing and I was exclusively pumping. Probably had it a total of 5-6 times with the the knock you on your butt flu like symptoms.

I hope it clears up soon!

Oh yikes! I think if I get it a second time I am calling it quits.

Yeah, I was overly determined to BF. Luckily it stopped when I stopped pumping and started BFing.

Maybe that is my problem. I only breastfeed maybe twice a day, then have to pump all the other times since she isn't home yet. I made an appointment with my doctor for this afternoon. I am really wondering if I should go or not, since my fever is gone and I feel a bit better. I don't want to drag all the kids over there unless I need to. But if it gets worse again I'll be sorry, I waited three days for this appointment afterall.

They may put you on antibiotics to clear up any infection. I hope it doesn't come back and that when she is home and BFing exclusively it stays away. Keep us posted.

Oh hun this is just plain yucky... I had quite a few ducts here and there. I just never got something this serious. I was able to get it unclogged with the hot wash cloths and massaging it. I hope Katy is home soon and this will be all behind you.
