@lilpoots Unfortunately no, their weekend option is to just go to the ER. I haven't felt fluish since yesterday morning, but I'm still pretty sure it's mastitis, it feels hot and still really hurts.
@lilpoots sorry you are having a rough time. I can definitely sympathize on the clogged ducts/mastitis. I’ve had a clogged ducts a bunch of times now (my son is 8 weeks old), had mastitis two weeks ago, and then had a particularly painful clog this week. Fortunately this time it didn’t turn into mastitis, but it was horrible. Sending you good thoughts!
How do I know the difference between just a clogged duct and mastitis? I have had terrible pain the last week in my right breast. Especially after feeding it burns and radiates pain for at least 20 minutes after. No fever or hot spots. I have been massaging it as much as possible.
@tfrangul, @coastalmomma-2, and @lilpoots thank you for the good wishes/checking in! LO was in zero rush to enter the world, so despite starting induction Monday evening, she wasn't born until eeaaaarly morning on Thursday. I posted in the birth announcements if you want to see a couple pics. Induction ultimately failed: I couldn't get past 6 cm and she wouldn't descend, so we went with the c section. Sorry for the delay in updating....as it turns out, I had some scary complications that arose in the 24 hours after giving birth. I'm more or less OK now but any birth story I put together is going to have a bigass TW accompanying it. Sigh. Bottom line, though, is that she is amazingly healthy and I am at least on the road to recovery at this point.
I had my 6 week followup today, and found out that I have a prolapsed bladder. I think I didn't really understand what that was until I left and looked it up, in my mind at the appointment I was just thinking bladder leakage when he said it, but I haven't had any of that yet, I thought he just meant after 2 kids I might have some bladder leakage in the future. After the appointment I had time to really look it up, and it essentially looks like it's your bladder slipping into your vagina, which is kind of scary. They're going to call tomorrow with my pap results, so I was going to ask them for some more information about my bladder tomorrow when they call, but I'm assuming part of it is already slipping because he mentioned it after doing my exam. Does anyone have any experience with a prolapsed bladder? I'm hoping it's less scary than it sounds.
