Frustrated.

DH packs up my pump for me to help me get out the door in the morning. Today it didn't have the essential parts! I missed my morning pumping opportunity due to a 'short' meeting that went the normal, long length. I have the go-ahead from my principal to miss the first portion and get notes from another teacher, but I went at the beginning of the meeting because we were told it would be short. It wasn't! And now it's lunch time, and I'm finding out I don't even have all of my pump. Guess it's not too bad, now, that DH didn't give me an ice pack, either. I'm here for another 2.5 hours, too. Guess I have to give manual expression its best go. Maybe I'll even get to eat lunch, if I'm lucky. UGH.

I got 2 oz in 10 min. And sticky hands. I'm not good at this method!

I've been there mama! Hang tight, you may have to pump tonight even when you get home or try to get babe to nurse extra. I've found that when I miss a daytime pumping, its not until the next morning that it really hurts...so if I can find another way to empty out, it helps me ward off mastitis.
Try not to be too hard on hubby...he was trying, I'm sure...Usually its ME who forgets something crucial! I also try to keep a cheap manual pump in my car just in case.
Good luck!

That had to be so frustrating. Hopefully you won't be in too much pain when you get home.

And now may be a good time to think about getting a cheap manual pump (or really practicing those manual expression skills) to stash in your car or in your desk at work.
