I am a former member of this board. I exclusively pumped for my now 2 1/2 year old son named Wyatt. I am 34 weeks pregnant with my third child. Finally a little girl! I plan on exclusively pumping for this baby as soon as we get home from the hospital. I breast fed both my boys while in the hospital but things fell apart for various reasons when we got home. I do not enjoy breastfeeding. I feel guilty saying that but I am doing my best to be honest about it. I don't like the way it feels. I tend to feel angry instead of bonding with my babies when they nurse. Nursing makes me miserable. However I want very much to provide breast milk and all it's benefits to my children. Pumping has been my happy medium. I don't mind the extra work of washing bottles and pump parts. I was lucky last time and it only took me roughly 15 minutes to pump at each session. I am hoping for that same luck this time. I pulled out my pump, cleaned it all up and replaced a few of the parts like tubes and membranes. I picked a comfy spot to set it up for pumping sessions that my younger son won't get into it. I can just see him tooting the flanges like horns or wearing them like hats. LOL I am excited for baby girl to be here and actually looking forward to pumping again. Fingers crossed time goes quickly and she is here safely in no time!

Hi Amy,

I'm so excited to see you here again!  Wishing you a very easy and healthy delivery of your sweet baby girl.  *See* you back here once she's arrive- I'm sure you'll have a ton of great BTDT advice and feedback to share. :)
