I blame it on myself because I had stopped taking my prenatal vitamins recently. No real reason why, just did. Anyhow, I believe it was those vitamins that was keeping me in good health and now I've gotten sick just from someone coughing on me.
I picked up some cough medicine last night (because I have one of those dry coughs, where I have to cough whenever I take in a deep breath - and I can't do that and be talking on the phone all day) and was frustrated to find the many sides the medical community has in regards to breastfeeding and over the counter medicine. Half of them say, "There haven't been any studies to conclude if it's bad or not." The other half say, "Everything that you eat and drink goes into your milk and into your baby - so don't take any kind of medicines." At last I also heard, "Oh, most over the counter medications are fine! The amount that actually get's transferred is so minor." Who am I to believe?! In the end I waited until I went to bed to take it - that way it would certainly be out of my system before I fed Evy again.
So this morning I woke up, and immediately took my prenatal vitamins. I need to get into the habit again because it's really just as important now as when I was pregnant. This morning I also started my first round of Fenugreek. One woman was even severe enough as to say that I should be waking up to nurse, or pump if I can't nurse. Um, I'm going to use that step as a last resort because I am SO blessed Evy sleeps through the WHOLE night and I'm going to take advantage of it.
