Better than that Ms. Craig woman!

I had my 4 week post-natal appointment this morning. Dr. T and the nurses were just in love with X-man. How can you not be?

I was excited to get on the scale and see how much I weighed according to that scale...since I'd been on it many times during the pregnancy.

Well? I weighed 168. My weight the day before I had X-man was 198. My weight on the first prenatal visit was 177. So, I've not only lost 30 pounds but I'm below my beginning pregnancy weight.

Yahoo!

Guess that will give me a little encouragement not to eat that half a package of dark chocolate M&Ms in the cabinet.

I'm really going to miss seeing Dr. T and the nurses on a regular basis. The next time I go in will be for my annual. Nice.

Oh, and I have a prescription for birth control pills. I just looked at them and they're 21 day. Now how am I going to remember to take my pill if I have to take off a week? I'm going to have to ask the pharmacy if I can get a 28 day pack. I know that last week is just a placebo pill, but I'm horrible at remembering medicine and I think I really need that extra week to keep me on track. Sheesh...

Be careful about that extra weight loss. It can sneak up on you really fast! I lost all of mine plus 5 or so and in no time it was back on(just the 5)!!!

I missed getting to see my doctor/nurses, too. I'm on Camilla birth control (the minipill) and it's a 28 day pack-it's supposed to be really safe for breastfeeding women.

Great job on the weight loss! Nursing can really help as long as you don't indulge in too many chocolate chip cookies like I'm afraid I do!

What kind of pills? Did your doc know you are breastfeeding? Some forms of hormonal birth control can damage your milk supply.

Good for you on avoiding the M&M's! The weight loss would have been my excuse for deserving a treat and eating them!!!

OH yeah...forgot to say that we stockpile the dark chocolate M&M's here since they are hard to find! I bought 11 bags to split between us and MIL back in January! LOL! The cashier had to think I was nuts!
