Ow. Work, I am not okay with this.

Some day I will write a general post about pumping and work. This is not that day. This is a vent. So just let me precede it by saying that a) normally my company is very accommodating and good, and b) my body is generally very responsive to a pump, hence the schedule I already get away with.

I pump twice at work, three times on a work day. In the morning just a little before I leave the house (pump about 6:30). Four hours after that. Four hours after THAT. And four hours after that I am home, unless traffic bites, in which case I might be a half hour late.

I flex the pumping times at work up to half an hour (total - I won't take a five-hour gap between) if needed. Today I dropped both of them 30 minutes earlier to accommodate an afternoon meeting....

...and got out of the meeting to be asked to work late on a priority issue. I told them I couldn't stay past 5:30 but, of course, I had just a few things to wrap up then and ended up leaving at 5:50.

So instead of doing 6:30/10:30/2:30/home by 6:30 to my hungry baby, I did 6:30/10:00/2:00/home about 7:00.

My left breast was killing me. Fortunately, my son, who had finished a bottle an hour earlier and probably would have been fine without - wasn't asking - was amenable when I offered. Not super-hungry, but he topped himself up enough that I no longer hurt.

Work, I am so not okay with this.
