Blah Day, Help with questions for my breastfeeding class????

Today is a feeling like BLAH day!! Lately it seems that every other day I feel like blah!! And by blah I mean: sore/achy muscles, super tired, and irritable!! Basically like when you get up and realize that you just need to go back to bed and start the day over again on a better side..HA!! The good part is that when I am not feeling like blah I am feeling AMAZING and rejuvenated. It cracks me up b/c each day is like opposites day.

Todd is planning on ordering the UFC fight tonight. Is that redundant? I am not sure, but I am going to have to take a nap today if I am going to be able to stay up and watch the fights tonight. And I am hoping that when I wake up from my nap I am feeling less irritable and achy! I guess this is going be a guy's weekend b/c I just realized that we are watching UFC tonight and then the superbowl is tomorrow. Oh yay!! Yeah, that was said in a very sarcastic way...hehe But Todd is such a sweetheart and he deserves a guy's weekend, so I will endure just for him :D

Now onto the real reason I decided to blog today! We are going to a breastfeeding basics class on Monday and I was wondering if y'all had any ideas of questions I could ask in class?? I really want to breastfeed, but I am aware of how hard it I am trying to give myself a head start in the right direction. Plus, the lactation nurse is the one teaching the class so I will make sure to introduce myself and let her know I will be calling on her in the hospital!!!!

At my BF class, I asked about the first few days in the hospital and how to start breastfeeding (i.e. will the nurses help me, how long after delivery, how often after that, etc). I asked about how to keep up my supply as well as outpatient support (what to do if I need help after I leave the hospital). I asked about if there were certain things to avoid if breastfeeding (caffeine, herbs, alcohol, any foods). I hope this helps!

Hope your BF class goes well. I didn't take one so I'm asking lots of questions now, but things seems to be working fine. Guess we'll find out when he gets weighed on Tuesday. :-) I assume they will have a ton of information for you.
