{embrace} the camera...friday

OK, I have a good excuse this time for not posting a pic yesterday. I didn't forget. I'm sick. No I don't have a cold, or the flu. I have mastitis. For all you moms out there who've had this, then I'm sure you can sympathize with my misfortune. Basically I have a clogged milk duct. Which has given my a massive, throbbing headache, a fever and chills(both of which are gone now) and an incredibly sore boob. It feels like I've been kicked in the chest and ribs by a kangaroo! Hopefully this will clear up on it's own, but if it still has not resolved itself by tomorrow, then off to the doctor we go for some antibiotics:(

Anywho, here is a pic taken the day before all of this craziness. It's stinking hot outside so we ventured to the water park again. Yeah, no one's faces but I thought it was pretty funny that the mini papercut and I were crouched down doing something, and the two older papercuts were in almost the same position behind us:)

Hope you all remembered to embrace the camera yesterday, and link up on Emily's blog!

Oh no!!! I had that for the first time when I was nursing Jenson (our youngest). It's TERRIBLE isn't it? I luckily figured out what was making me so ill early enough that I could fix the problem on my own, but oh boy, it was awful! I can't get over how sick it made me either. Get well soon.

Have you tried putting green cabbage leaves in your nursing bra...yes I know that sounds weird but for some reason it does work sometimes....a friend of mine swears by it for mastitis, and engorgement. I was lucky enough not to get it when nursing my little guys. That is so crumby :(!!
I hope you are feeling better soon.

Thanks everyone! I'm feeling much better, and luckily all it took was a bit of Advil, a few warm compresses and a LOT of breastfeeding :) Yeah, it was not fun!
