.....my breast are gonna burst! im really tired today so i went for a sleep and i woke up and BAM they're engorged and leaking, all lumpy and hard. is it a wise move to express? i don't wanna kick off labour if my body isnt ready etc and i've not pumped/fed for years so it seems a bit weird. but it's HURTING

sorry for tmi etc but yeah HELP im gonna go bang

shower? cool or warm compress? rub them?

my DD is nursing still and still no labor for me, so I wouldn't think some hand expressing would hurt you, plus you're far enough along that labor now isn't a problem eh?

i'm just paranoid about using any forms of labour-inducer i guess because i'd hate a false-start haha

but yeah, i gotta do something, major case of hot bullet boobs, didnt get this till after DS was born, it's a bit weird tbh lol

Pumping enough to relieve engorgement shouldn't kick you into labor.

We're equally far along, and I'm still nursing.

I have TONS of contractions, but NONE of them is related to nursing!

So I say go pump or hand express!

Hot shower & some hand expressions should do the trick.
