I have a horrid breast infection. Since Mon. afternoon. Feels like the flu plus super intense breast pain. Ugggh. Dh has stayed home with me to help with the kids but he has to go back to work tomorrow. I've been doing the usual, rest, heat, nurse, fluids. I was vomiting and incredibly dizzy. I just got a fever today 102.5 I was given an antibiotic, but just started it today. I really didn't want to, but I'm afraid of being sick for a long time and alone with the kids. I'm so stupid, I was feeling much better this AM so dh decided to play hookey and we went out to breakfast and to a state park..it was really fun, but on the way home, BAM, I felt awful again. Back to the couch with me. i'm really dizzy.

can't wait to catch up on all the posts. the only one i read was DIDS pos preg test. wow. i actually thought maybe i was pg this morning cause i was feeling better,e xcept for very nauseated and had the sniffer of a canine. i could smell my dh's deodorant in the car and it was making me want ot :Puke

I hope you feel better soon! Mastitis is a bitch. Park your butt at the puter and catch up - you need your rest

Ooo yes...you must rest...so sorry you're feeling so horrid. I thought I was coming down with the same thing myself the other day but in the end I just had a REALLY painful plugged duct with a huge red mark over my breast...guess I was lucky.

Take care and get well soon,

Kelli

When I had a red, hot, inflamed duct my midwife said to sleep as much as possible... that's when our bodies can heal themselves... it definitely did help me; though I know it's easier said than done (especially with several kids!).

Hope you feel better soon, mama!
