Overpumping : what does it mean & why you should avoid it!

Hi ladies! I know I promised to be consistent this year but I’ve been doing my own research on NBE as well, so busy busy lately hehe! I hope you all are doing well 🙂

The next post is going to be for nooglerz-crazy-people. I think is essential to make clear overpumping is not a good idea and why you should take into account the amount of time you spend pumping day by day.  Lately I’ve got three private messages related to overpumping so I think it is a good idea to talk about it on the blog!

 

So, what is exactly overpumping? Basically puttin’ too much pressure on the cups that your breast and skin get red or even purple. Very purple sometimes. Yuck, this is not a joke! You feel like the pressure is making your breast area super stretchy , and finally you get like little spots or red dots around all the bust .

Why it happens? It can be for many reasons at the same time in my opinion .

From my own experience , it can happen due to a poor circulation for example : this means your blood flow is bad prior noogling or you have not put enough heat around your chest (remember 5-10 minutes is good!!) ; it can be too , as said before, cause you are putting too much pressure : it is true you need certain pressure for vacuum pumping but it has to be ‘valid’ , ‘tolerable’ and ‘different’ each time you pump : valid in a way you can see all your breast pumped, tolerable because it is not pain at all and different cause in every session you do you have to do much pressure, less pressure, much pressure, less pressure and so on ; another cause could be because you don’t respect the time, 7:2 method in general : it ‘s essential to keep in mind pump and release it’s necessary at least twice in a session, your breasts and your skin need to breathe for seconds or even minutes sometimes. Also, massage plays a good role on this one, so it’s mandatory (sorry!!).  On the other hand make sure how much time you can be pumping in total – in my case, for example, it is 3 hours maximum in a day – if I do more than 3 hours I feel soreness that can last up to 4 days and this can be dangerous if I keep pumping the next coming days! and last but not least, I am not sure yet if this is a big cause or secondary cause but NOT TAKING BREAKS can be counterproductive as well . I haven’t had any issue yet with this, but I’ve read on the forum there are some gals that had these negative part when pumping cause they were pumping non stop for months. So, my advice is, t-a-k-e b r e a k s , once a week, one week per month, 2 weeks every three months, 2 months every five months…again, everyone is different so watch out, listen to your body on this!

 

Usually when I overpump it is because I do not measure well the pressure or I feel so sleepy that in the end I don’t do pump and release (I’m human, I am lazy) and then I face aaaalll the consequences, not just the red dots, purple skin and soreness – that’s just the physical part.

Now, there are other things too . You may ask, like what?  These ones :

1- You need to take a break til the purple skin and red dots are gone. Yup.

2- Moisturizing a lot like 3 or 4 times everyday for the rest of the month ( I asked to my friend who is a naturopath and she suggested me to do this way for avoiding stretchmarks or even scars! I use vitamin E by the way)

3- When you get back to boob work, you have to do 30 minutes no more for a week or so – you need to be sure if you are 100% cured!

4- You need to massage more times per day until you are completely healed – yes, 3 times a day but more minutes. Again I’m sorry but this works!

5- With all this chaos, you have to readjust your nooglin’ program and this sometimes can be frustrating .

In conclusion, try to not overpump too much times in a year or your program must be readjusted so many times that in the end , you may not see results faster and in a better way. I still learning about how the pressure works on breast area and what things are okay and what are like ‘never ever in my life before’ and this context is one of them , I’d say the worst one. So please, if you are new in this world of noogling make a good program , be consistent but do not do crazy things. Remember everyone’s body reacts different and my case can be similar to yours or maybe not, so do a good research, try, get experience, learn from the mistakes you do and spread the word 😉

Til the next time!!!

 

” Happy noogling”

Happy New Year & get a ‘Breasts resolutions’ (lol)

Hey Queens!

I hope the end of 2017 was more fun than mine lol! In December I moved to a new house and when I was done with moving I got a f***king flu which is causing lots of problem near Barcelona that got me hospitalised around a week . Not fun at all, I’ve been weak and on the other hand I’ve lost weight , so yes that means I loose part of my cleavage . Nay Nay Nay Nay =( But this is life and sometimes we need to see the good part in the ‘disgraces’ – and the good part is the motivation because I know I can make it happen again and maybe make them bigger, why not?

And also, why you can’t? You can do it , I’m pretty sure about it!

If you are new on NBE you may be a bit lost, so read this article in order to get a clear idea about everything you need to do and know before starting this journey :

1- Research : this is essential because there’s a lot of information out there and maybe the info I explain on this website is not enough for making a good NBE in your case. So please, take your time, read this blog and other blogs about NBE (there are plenty of them) as much as you do on the forum . Herbs, binaural’s, pumping, massage… there are a lot of ways to make it happen! If you feel lost or you need extra information you can comment on this blog or message me on Breastnexus as well, I’m very friendly =)

2- Be realistic : oh yes. And by realistic I mean this is not an overnight process , it takes time. I tend to compare it with learning languages (I speak six languages so I know what I am talking about) , in the beginning is super slow and it brings you down because you don’t notice the results but day by day, each month, you improve a lot and you get more curious about it so please don’t give up the first month, give it a try . It is good to keep this simple but effective, so my main advice is to set little goals such as short term goals and long term goals. In 2015 when I lost all my boobs I did not know what to do and instead of doing a crazy thing I kept thinking what I had to achieve first “The size I have lost” I said to myself : that was 32B . So, in 2016 I got healthier little by little and in two months getting back my weight around 3 kilos and a bit of pumping I got 32B. After reaching that size I thought “Mhmhm this is slow but effective, what if I get 32C? ” and after some months I made it again. But it took me 10 months to be 34B and stay healthy the first year I was pumping, so don’t even think this was magic because it is not.

3- Keep it simple : in my opinion the less weird mix we do it is more effective and in the end , safe. I mean I’ve seen some people on the forum taking herbs, creams, massage, pumping and so on with little success. The queens that have been successful are few ones   (success part II coming soon by the way!) but their methods were simple , that’s why I think it is the key for our bodies, not overwhelming the balance and our inmune system.

4- Keep your weight healthy : this is essential. You need to fuel your body in a proper way therefore there’s no a lack of nutrients and your hormones are the most balanced possible. Hormones are key for enhancing your breasts and food plays an important role in my opinion so if you are underweight EAT and if you think you are a bit chubby (I’ve been chubby this year lol!!!) please watch out and think first in your overall health.

5- Less alcohol, more water please! : I think in any method for NBE water plays an essential role but in pumping is VERY important to drink your water as you eat your water! Yes, eat your water through fruits and veggies ! Drink it, plenty of it!!

6- Move, move, move! : running, swimming, playing soccer, walking, I don’t care but move! Since I restarted doing exercise my life is been better and my results have been really good so do it!

7- Patience : As I said before, it takes too much effort and too much time so don’t give up, you will see results as long as you keep pushing yourself! Trust the process and everything will come to you soon I promise!

8- Enjoy it : the best way to make it happen is to have fun while doing NBE!

“Make a wish…”

All women need to know how it works our cycle ♺

Hello my beautiful flowers!

How are you? Happy Monday ! I know last week I have not been very active, but lots of things have happened in my life these last days.

Today I am going to talk about women’s health, well better said our period’s health! lol , kind of gross maybe? Mmm it can be , but it is natural for ourselves to get the period every single month (in case it’s gone make sure you are not pregnant or your health is doing well!) :] I will keep it simple, therefor whoever who reads this can have a general approach to the topic.

So, what is the period? well it happens cause our bodies are prepared to be mommies some day. Biologically and anthropologically we are here for having children (hey, I am not affirming you must have children, but this is something I may explain on a post next time). 

A full cycle it’s counted since the first day of a period until the next month period first day, also known as, 21-35 days as an average data in adult women and 20-45 days in ladies who just became ”women”.  Every single month our ovaries drops a egg which may be or not may be fertilised : even your egg have been fertilised or your egg went partying inside out , congratulations, both news can be amazing depending on what you expect every month.

Jokes apart, when the egg is released your period starts and it can lasts between 2 days up to 7 days : depending on when came your menarche (a.k.a your first menstrual period) it can take months or even years to have a regular period , therefor, a normal relationship with you-your body-your ovaries-your cycle. Yep, all these yourselves are messing you up every single month . Normally a girl gets her menarche between 9-15 years old so of course it takes a lot of time to have a period which does not last more than a week . In general, in a year or two your cycles start to regulate and you keep having visits from Janey (this is my period name but I have heard beautiful names for it such as Lilly, LadyGaga, Carmen, Fridha, Daisy… you can let me know your period’s name on the comments if so) but there can be ”problems”, ”difficulties” to get a normal cycle such as having PCOS or endometriosis , which I would like to talk about these two things another day as well cause I find both things very interesting and it’s worth the debate.

Talking again about the period and its cycle, I think first it is essential to make clear there are phases to be taken into account (NBErs, read this carefully!) to understand way more better what’s up with you-your body-your ovaries-your period weirdo relationship.

  1. MENSTRUATION

What does it mean? What happens here? What I should do these days? It means literally a discharging blood and other things from puberty until menopause (yes, almost 40 years having her!) You will feel exhausted and probably not with a good humor, but hey it only lasts 4-5 days in general (unless it is irregular) and you can do everything you want to do and need to do these days! Of course you will feel floated and you may have other symptoms but remember you need to eat good quality calories cause your body is making a huge effort these days and drink plenty of water. On the other hand, you could take ibuprofen for feeling better but honestly my advice is to take natural supplements, do exercise and obviously listen to your body. These days are especial for every women and we should think about it .

2.PHOLICULAR PHASE

From day 1 to 13, it is when your uterine lining thickens. During these days you need to be active , doing exercise cause it’s said when the menstruation is gone the Estrogen is higher again so you will feel lots of energy! Plus it will help you with sleep, when your

3.OVULATION

The level of estrogen in the body continues to increase, causing a rapid increase in LH. This increase causes the secretion of proteolytic enzymes that will degrade the follicular tissue allowing the end of the process of maturation of the egg and its release, known as “ovulation”.

If you do exercise make sure you are doing it consciously, I mean body-mind connection. This is essential cause these days we are more “weak” for facing an injury

4.LUTHEAL PHASE

From days 15 to 28. After ovulation, the luteal phase begins where the corpus luteum develops and lasts until a possible pregnancy or menstruation occurs, and the next cycle begins. The egg, after release, travels through the fallopian tube to the womb. It can survive up to 24 hours and sperm up to 5 days inside the uterus, so the days before ovulation and the very day of ovulation are those of maximum fertility and higher probabilities of pregnancy. I think this last one was remarkable 😉

During these days your body’s temperature is higher so if you like to workout I’d suggest you to try HIIT exercises during these days, cause in theory is when you have more energy.

-What I should eat?

Well, you can eat whatever you want taking into account the days when menstruation occurs and 5-10 days before your body needs extra calories cause it works more than usually, so make sure you are eating a good amount of calories and drinking plenty of water.

Try to eat more protein combined with simple carbs, it will help you with sugar cravings and not feeling hungry lots of times.

-Should I take supplements?

Well it’s up to you, sometimes I take multivitamins during menstruation but if you are feeling great during and after the period comes, I think watching out what you eat and how much do you eat it’s enough.

I hope you found it useful. However, neext time we will continue talking about period and it’s cycles.

(& I promise to write a post weekly at least no worries)
