I am officially back at work, and have been for about 5 hours now. Today has been going pretty well, and the ache I feel for my little Isaac is as minimal as one coudl expect. I am actually going to be pretty busy, so that should keep me distracted. Isaac is at home with my husband today, and from what I gather, he is doing ok. I guess he has been sleeping most of the time. Ben and I went over his routine and such yesterday night, and he was very patient with me. Like, I know he knows where his bibs and stuff are, but it was for my peace of mind and I think he got that.
I took a little "computer hiatus" yesterday, being it was my last day with Isaac on maternity leave. All we did was play and snuggle.
I had a good birthday on Friday...and woke up with a horrible sore throat on Saturday. Yesterday was bad too. I am still so apprehensive to take any OTC meds because of breastfeeding. I have never been so aware of what I am putting into my body as I am now that it is going to another person. Like, even when I was pregnant, I was not this hyper about it. I think it is because I can see the direct effect the differences in my milk have on the baby.
Speaking of milk, my bonding with my pump has begun. So far, so good. Fingers crossed.
I miss my baby boy. :(
