Nope--it was absolutely horrific. 2 full months of bleeding, soreness, thrush, OAL, oversupply, latch issues, SEVERE pain (enough so I was generally crying through nursing) and deep, deep depression in part due to my feelings of failure and, of course, the physical pain. We finally discovered I have Raynaud's syndrome--which means I will never nurse without some discomfort.
I am working my a$$ off to make it to 2 years of nursing, but I have no certainty about whether we'll make it.
My LLL leader says I am the poster child for nursing through difficulties.
Mama to DS(7), DS(4), DD(1) and #4 due 8/2014!
