Oh my goodness I am SOOO happy for you!!! I just hit 8 months today so we are in the same boat. I remember reading your post 5 months ago and my heart went out to you. I am so glad to hear things worked out. It's crazy how much easier it is now than it was those first couple of months huh? Don't be embarressed about the first post. I didn't think you were someone throwing a tantrum, I heard a woman who was going through hell to provide the best for her baby and was at the breaking point. I must admit I didn't go through all of the trials you did, but I certainly remember sitting in my pump chair crying while trying to massage a clog, smelling like a monster because I hadn't showered in 2 days, forcing down anything I could find when I actually remembered to eat, sleeping 30 min. - 1 hr. at a time and as much as I wanted to go outside, the thought was absolutely terrifying. We've all been there. And you are right, whether you pump a little or alot, or whether you pump for 2 days, 2 weeks, 2 months or a year, we are all heros. Thank you so much for sharing your story =).
You are a rock star!
I don't think I found this message board until after your post.
