My Love Affair

So those that know me, know that I’m PRO Breastfeeding.  However, because FMLA is soooo not enough (only 50%), I went back to work when my son was only 1 month old.  I knew early on that I would have to pump (actually I pumped in the hospital b/c they were giving my child formula and I was NOT having it! But that’s another story…) Anyhow, I sat down with my boss about setting me up a room to pump.  1st she offered me the bathroom (eww!), which I calmly explained how that was unsanitary and that by law she must offer me a room.  There was one little issue, all the rooms had full-length windows! So being the savvy mommy that I am, I bought a curtain for my work pumping sessions.

Well, I am also in school!  My teacher has been a total sweetheart with letting me use her office to get a short pump break (approx 8-10min) in during class.  My only issue is everytime she leaves me in the office, she runs and tells someone, “HEY! You know what she’s doing in there?!?!?! Pumping milk for her baby!” Yeaaaaa….thanks.  It’s not everyday that your whole class knows that you are sitting bare-breast in your instructors office attached to a pump…BUT, I digress.

So, where does this love affair come in at?  Well, I am having a full out affair with my Medela Pump-In-Style Advanced breastpump.  Yep, that’s me.  Let me put it this way, I’m gone Mon-Thurs from 645am-930pm Fri 10-7pm and Sat 8-2pm.  That is literally NO baby time, except his midnight feeds and definately NO hubby time!  Now here’s where you say, “Why don’t you try and jump hubby’s bone in the middle of the night or something?”  Which my response would be, TRUST ME I WISH I COULD!  By some freak accident, mother nature has decided to come back when I was 6wks postpartum…NO FAIR.  Then I’m on Implanon which could either TOTALLY ERASE your period, or have you spot constantly…lucky me, I got stuck with the latter.  So, the ONLY action this newly married woman is getting…the suction from her breastpump (ok, I lie…hubby and I do get some time alone here and there).  I wonder if hubby is jealous…  Either way our anniversary is approaching in a few weeks, so I’ll have something nice planned for him and leave my pump out of the bedroom!
