Let me set the scene..... Last night we were having visitors over. It got to 4pm and I was feeling really flat, my day had been really challenging and I really felt like a wine to try and lift me up before the visitors arrived.
So I grabbed this glass. I filled one quarter of it with wine and the rest with soda water and I drank it right after I fed Paddy. And I felt super. I had the music going, Paddy and I were dancing and I thought to myself this has done the trick.
About one hour after that I hit a major wall. I felt sick in the stomach and I got the most amazing headache. I felt ridiculous for even thinking that I needed that wine to help me through the night.
Am I destined to be without wine in my life forever? Or is it my body telling me that my one glass of wine was totally unnecessary?
Any breastfeeding and drinking stories or advice would be appreciated......
