Thrush - I haz it

And it sucks.

For those unfamiliar, it's a breastfeeding issue (has to do with yeast build up or something). It's super painful. Think sharp shards of glass every time she sucks and burning pain afterwards (for me...not baby). Thankfully I go to the Dr tomorrow...but this past weekend was not fun. Especially since I didn't really know what was wrong until I looked up my symptoms, and this morning when I talked with a LLL leader.

Good news is it can be taken care of, but it might take a few weeks.

Isabella better love me for this.

This concludes my woe is me post....

Oh no Mandy!! That sounds super awful! I think my sister Jenny had some issues like that, but her milk was coming out bloody too so she had to stop breastfeeding. Ugh how terrible for you!

Good luck at the Dr. tomorrow!

I'm sorry honey - I hope it clears up quickly for you.
