On Thursday night I was feeling some tenderness in my left breast.  I thought that my bra might have been too tight so I said a prayer and went to bed.  I guess I might have said my prayer a little late because when I woke up the next morning I was immobilized with pain.  My left breast was swollen and extremely tender.  I had a fever and my entire body was tingling.  My husband wanted to take me to the hospital but of course as stubborn as I am, I said no.  Now after how HORRIBLE yesterday was and today is not looking any better I wish I would have listened to him.  Maybe sometimes he is right....SOMETIMES.  :)

  1. I had mastitis too. I took ibuprofen for my fever, grape seed extract every 2 hours for the infection, and pumped a lot. I also would let the baby nurse on that side in the beginning of every feeding when they nurse more vigorously. Hope you feel better soon hun, mastitis is horrible!
