Pumping NIGHTMARE

I just went to pump and realized that I had left off those little rubber thingies when I packed my bag, which rendered the whole pump USELESS. Which means I am at work with a pair of super swollen twins!! I sat there for 20 minutes trying to express some by hand, but without practice, my first couple of shots sort of missed the bottle. So my white blouse is a little see through now, offering a nice window to my world. And since I haven't leaked since my milk ing pattern was established, I stopped wearing nursing pads, so any further wetness will go unchecked. . . . And I work in an office full of pervy men. This long day just got a little longer!! I suddenly have a lot more respect for bottle feeding mothers.

I have had that happen...my first day away from baby, she was 6 weeks - a friend and I drove to a town 2 hours away to go shopping at a bazaar...I didn't think to bring a pump, and by the end of the day I was in tears it hurt so bad.

Oh I know how you feel. The first day I came back to work I also forgot a part of my pump. I ended up hand expressing without much success. Not to scare you or anything but I ended up getting a clogged duct because of it and had to work a long time on getting it fixed. So even if it takes a long time, you should try to empty the b___sts.

is there any way you can go home "sick" so you dont have to suffer the whole day like that?
