Today I went to a educational training for my work (I am a teacher) at another school. So I of course brought my pump and whatnot and planned to pump in my car with my battery pack. I was kind of nervous doing that in my car but really I didn't have the balls to ask for somewhere else and it was only one day. So I got in my car, thank god for tinted windows, and started pulling out my stuff. I noticed as I was pulling things out I was missing the two pump parts that go over your breasts that put the milk into the bottle. I am sure those things have a fancy name but I have no idea. Well, I was pretty full because I hadn't gotten a break and the training was actually interesting. So I quickly had to hand express into one of my milk bottles. I have done a little bit before but never any large amount. Man, that made my nipples sore! I guess I learned two lessons, one how to hand express and two check my pump bag before I leave the house!!
