Ugh. I have a plugged duct again. This is the worst I’ve ever had. It is huge. I can feel the milk backed up all the way to my armpit. I’ve been pumping and squeezing for what seems like hours…. and soaking in hot water … and drinking water … and I took a hot shower … and I used hot compresses.
I’m not getting much milk and it just keeps getting firmer and firmer. It’s late now. I guess the only thing I can do at this point is take some ibuprofen for the pain and hope that it pops free when I get up in the morning.
