Omri 2 weeks old & Harvey 1 month old

I had the best intentions of posting my birth story along with another post on all the amazing love and help we have received from family and friends over the past few weeks. Instead I found myself shivering with aches and chills all of Thursday night and well into Saturday morning. I have never had mastitis until this little guy. Let me tell you it is as bad as they say. I seriously felt like I was dying of the flu, my whole body hurt. Aches & pain in every joint, only my boobs felt like they were being stabbed by toothpicks and full of fire and I kind of wished they would fall off that's how badly they hurt. Too much info? Maybe. I'm just grateful I only had to suffer through it this once and not with every one of my little ones. Thank goodness for modern medicine. After 3 days of antibiotic I'm feeling like a normal human being again.

 Looking forward to catching up on the ol' blog. Posts and pics to come.

You poor girl! Had mastitis with my last biggest baby. All I could do was crawl to my mom's house, get in her bed and let her take care of my kids! Glad you are feeling better! Be careful though, I found I was sort of prone to it after that first time.

Omri is adorable! Harvey looks like he wants to make friends...but Omri just wants to sleep!

Glad you are feeling better..I have always heard that mastitis is just awful.

You. Should. Have. Called. MEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

I had no idea you were suffering!!

I had mastitis a total of 17 times through all my children and I promised myself that I would help anyone who got it....

Next time, k?

Except I hope there never is a next time for you-
