Thanks to a wonderful midwife, support groups, good friends and determination, I have reached the 3 months goal I had set for myself; a realistic goal – something that seemed doable rather than discouraging. I cannot believe that I overcame excruciating pain, tears and exhaustion, all for the sake of my little one’s health. I am proud of myself, proud of her for sticking around (haha) despite some issues we have undergone and I am officially setting a new goal: the 6 months mark. It is not all roses but it brings me joy and satisfaction that I can provide for her this way. I love this special bond we have.
Do you think I can survive without a breast pump? Debating whether I should get one or not…would love to go out with my husband!
