My birthday is in August and I told dh I had better be getting a gym membership or tennis lessons to slim back down. Both of my girlfriends that have recently had children are breastfeeding and both look great.
I always wanted to understand just how breast feeding makes us lose weight? because I thought women still had to eat hearty so wouldn't that keep the weight on?
You can burn 500 calories a day bfing, yes you do need to eat well, but once your supply is established you can diet while bfing
I have a few friends who have just had babies too and although 1 is breast feeding and 2 couldnt unfortunately they have all sprung back into shapre so quickly! Very lucky. I plan to try to breastfeed so I hope I loose the weight without having too much hassle. Peace you are good asking for gym membership for your birthday! I want a bottle of champagne and a starw for my birthday in august ha ha.
Im feeling soooo tired at the moment. My 28 week blood results showed I am anemic so maybe thats why and can get an iron supplement from monday. We have friends staying all weekend though and I am at work today - exhausted doesnt really cover it! Plus being designated driver while everyone else drinks themselves stupid is getting a bit boring!!
Albs, that sounds painful! Hope you don't feel too uncomfortable.
Hel, my hormones have been fine this pregnancy, but I'm expecting a big crash just before my due date. That's when I usually get weepy and needy. At least this time I know it's coming!
I never lose weight when I'm breastfeeding -- don't know why, but my weight loss doesn't come until I stop. I'm not thinking about it too much, just resigning myself to being cuddly for the next 9 months or so.
My crazy preggo-ness has hit... I almost CRIED when I THOUGHT that I had forgotten my apples at the grocery store after checking out.... I didnt, but I still was upset hahaha then I almost cried again when I had to climb 3 flights of stairs.. just because I was tired. AHHH!!! I feel so bad for DH!
How is everyone? Its been quiet lately! I am 100 days away!! Assuming I go all the way to 40 weeks!
I am sooo tired all the time. I have only been awake for under 3 hours and could really go for a nap. I think I might before work. Anyone else get this way?
On the bright side, I only have 40 working days left! Then 2 weeks vacation and mat leave starts. And we also bought all of our cloth diapers on the weekend!! We got them online from a retailer here in Canada. We are using the bumgenius 4.0. We got 24 Diapers for about $500.
It's really starting to feel much more real. And I think baby may have flipped over finally. She has been breech but the movements have been very different the last few days. DH finally felt her move!
Starting to pack on the pounds and I'm feeling it in my hips! Ouch! Also, the constipation is starting to really piss me off, I'm about ready to cry Anyone doing anything that really helps, coffee used to be my laxitive but now it has no affect.
