i am 38 weeks pregnant and this will be my 1st time breastfeeding.
i am concerned that i might have done something stupid. i pumped for very short time, thinking i was just going to check out the pump. i only wanted to know how it feels. but now the next day i think my milk is coming in. i'm in so much pain in my boobs and they are so big now. they are red and feel like fire. the thing that worries me is i haven't gave birth yet. idk much about breastfeeding but i am scared that i might have messed up. am i ok? should i call the Dr.? will my baby still get the same benefits from the 1st feeding? will it put me in labor? maybe it is a stupid question. i know about pregnant moms that nurse and they are fine. maybe i'm ok... am i a total idiot.

Are they hot to the touch? Are you running a fever? Could be mastitis and it's totally normal and no you didn't mess up anything. :)

Yes, call the doctor, but I'm almost positive that you will be fine and haven't messed up anything.
