Hi Jsquared and CBB!! Glad to hear all is going well with you both!
Isabella is getting so big - almost 8 weeks now and about 12lbs!! She is eating every three hours or so, which is SOO much better than every hour, and she has these huge cheeks that you just want to SQUEEZE!! DH went back to work last week (took 6 weeks off with me), and it is a little bit of an adjustment to handle her on my own. I go back to work in August and sometimes I feel like I cant wait for the "break", other times I dont want to go back at all. But, we need the money, so I have to go back
Jsquared - I went for my 6 wk checkup and they put me on Camilla until I stop breastfeeding. They told me it has a 90-95% effective rate, but with breastfeeding, increases a little bit. I dont think it does anything with your milk supply, but I am not too sure. I will read the little pamphlet thing they give you with the pills and let you know.
I still have not gotten my first AF - anyone else get theirs yet? The dr said it could come anytime or maybe not until she is completely weened. It will probably come my very first day back to work when I am unprepared. For those who have gotten it, was it a REALLY heavy one to begin with, or not so bad?
Is anyone losing weight? I havent lost a pound in like a month. Started doing pilates at home (love Mari Winsor), but not much is happening yet. Still got 15 lbs to go and was hoping to NOT wear maternity clothes back to work....oh well.
Hope to hear back from all the rest of the May mommies and hope that everyone is enjoying the summer!
