I had a similar experience. I've been pumping as needed to relieve the engorgement, and I have a little frozen milk now so that's nice. Massaging your breast & hand-expressing in a warm shower also helps.

I am glad I started occasional pumping early. With my DS, I didn't pump until he was a month old & had trouble getting up a good stockpile when I returned to work. While I have not been away from DD yet, the engorgement was less than with DS, & I like having a little freezer stash early.
