P-Day as in “Pump” Day.
Tomorrow morning I’m heading to San Diego for the BlogHer conference.
I’ll be gone for 4 days.
The freezer is stocked with breast milk. I have a plan to pump and ship more Friday afternoon to be delivered Saturday morning and there’s a can of formula in the pantry, just in case.
Honestly, I’m a nervous wreck!
There’s a level of excitement as I haven’t had any time alone in a long time but it’s mixed with a little guilt, a little concern and a lot of anxiety.
Am I leaving him to soon?
Will he refuse to nurse when I get home?
Will I be able to manage the pumping?
Will my supply be compromised?
These are just some of the thoughts swimming in my head. I’m trying to remind myself all will be fine. This is a great time for the husband to spend some quality alone time with the boys. Plus I’m a little Type-A, so stepping away is a bit therapeutic for me as well.
I will keep you posted and let you know how the “pump and ship” pans out! I’m still working out some of the details.
