I'm pregnant with baby #3 right now and fearing the engorgement more than anything else. With DS1 it wasn't so bad, it lasted maybe a day or two. With DS2 I went from an A cup to at least a D cup and stayed painfully engorged for 5 days. It was the most painful thing ever and nothing seemed to help. Please tell me it won't be even worse this time around! My LC did warn me that engorgement is much more painful the second time around but I never asked about the 3rd time. Any advice or tips to help ease the pain? I've tried cabbage, hot packs, cold packs, showers, and minimal pumping when all else failed.
