Anxiety

1 comment
Today was dreadfully boring, mildly explosive, slightly productive, and overall a normal day. Right? I went on the paper route with mom, came home and fought with mom, and then for the first time ever actually managed to lazy bum outta bed and done 30 crunches! Not that many but I actually felt the burn....which I reiterate that this was a first ever. Oh did I mention I also cleaned my very messy room?

Anyways tomorrow is the first Appalachian Studies 2 class of the semester, and I have it with my neighbor. That is kind of weird but cool I guess. Then I have to work. After much bickering about my work sechedule and I am still not happy with it. I will be working:

Monday 2-3:30
Tuesday 8-12; 2-5
Wednesday 2-3:30
Friday 12-4

Class of course is Mon & Wed 9:30-10:45, 11:00-12:15, 3:30-4:45 and Fri 9:30-11:45

Now I can already tell a drop in my milk supply and I am worried. Very worried. *mental note to talk to Shaina* Yeah I can pump but I can't pump while I am in class or at work. So what am I going to do because I don't want to supplement!

I think I am beginning to suffer anxiety and this is the first week of the semester! First I gotta worry bout bills, passing my classes (I have to room to fail any or drop any of the 4 classes I am taking), being able to feed my son, then my mother complains about watching him yet hates the idea of anyone else watching him, PJ is always at work, and I am NOT managing this. But I got to and I am on the brink of crying or maybe just giving up and curling up with my son and forgetting everything else....but I can't. I know I am rambling but I don't know how to work it all out.

  1. Pump inbetween classes, I saw you had a 15 minute break there. Inform your professor you may be a few minutes late and explain your situation. Milk can sit out in room temperature air for like 8 hours or something crazy like that. Feed him right before you leave, and then pump after that feeding as well. Eat oatmeal once to twice a day, and drink plenty of water. NOT pop, NOT juice. Water.

    Get your Mom to bring him up as much as possible and let him nurse, because the nursing will stimulate better than pump. I think you have a few hours there where you get to go back down? Nurse him when you get there and before you leave. Have your Mom (if she will) try and hold him off so you can nurse as soon as you get back from class. It may take a week or two, but your boobs will adjust and everything will be fine!
