Response to is the baby stage hard for everybody?
The way you are feeling is totally normal. I felt the same way after the twins. The problem is that we as mothers that have had to work so hard to get pregnant, that if you dare speak of what you are feeling you are chastised. But I want you to know that it is ok. Just hang in there and things will get better!
Now the whole pumping thing I cant give you much advice, because for me it hurt ever time and ever day for the 19 months I pumped. Just make sure you put something on before and after like lanolin. My lactation consultant prescribed me a trio of the things (Mupirocin, Betamethasone and Nystatin) that I mixed together with equal parts that I applied when my nipples were cracked and bleeding. This combination works wonders!
