I feel yucky. I can’t tell if I have a clogged duct or mastitis. I do have a low fever and a red painful spot on my boob but the spot isn’t warm nor lumpy. It hasn’t gotten worse in the last 24 hours so I’m not sure if I should go to my doc. I hate fevers, I just feel crappy and tired. Silas is completely out of sorts today and Isaac is having a bit of trouble sleeping. He did NOT sleep well last night, of course on the night I had a fever. Tonight I’ll make more of an effort to keep him awake before bed time. Man, having one child is a lot easier when it comes to the sleep issues. You still have to get up at 6:30 every morning with two. Oh well, this too shall pass. I hope this fever doesn’t get worse, I’ve been doing all the necessary things to get rid of this. I had it last time with Silas and I got rid of it on my own so we’ll see how this goes. Antibiotics suck massively, I don’t want to take them. I wish I could take something to make the aching go away but I need this little fever to fight off whatever is infecting me. I’m all about holding onto the smaller fevers to help fight stuff off.
Silas is acting like he’s having a bit of trouble adjusting, I hope it’s that and not sickness. He hasn’t had much of an appetite lately and isn’t sleeping long enough or falling asleep early enough. He’s tantruming a lot and kinda working grandma a bit, asking to be held all the time. He’s not taking it out on Isaac though which I am thankful for. It’s like he’s upset about the change but not blaming the baby for it, weird.
Anyway, I think I’ll have a shower and run some warm water over my poor boob. My other boob is doing well being neglected. Looks like the over supply of milk didn’t last too long this time. Of course he’s still eating out of the other one because he can empty both, he eats like he’s one month old, a total piggy. Anyway, off to the showers.
