All Good To Go
I had my 6 weeks post-pregnancy checkup today and I can not be sexually active again. Hubby will be glad for that. I am breast feeding, which is supposed to act as a birth control (but it's not fool-proof), so I got back on Depo. I hope my period doesn't come back. I was on it for 5 years before we decided to have children, at which point I went off of it for 1 1/2 years, and after the first couple month of being on it didn't have my period. I loved not having my period (which is a great thing about being pregnant & breastfeeding - no period! Although, with breastfeeding, it does come back after a while in some women.) So, my appointment went well. I am almost back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I have 6 more pounds to go (gained 30 during pregnancy.) I bet those 6 pounds would already be off if I didn't keep eating so much ice cream & brownies & cake & whatever other sweets you put in front me. The last 6 weeks I have eaten so many desserts that it is not funny. My extra 500 calories a day I am supposed to eat because I am breastfeeding is all coming in the form of desserts. I am creating some bad habits here - but it tastes so goooooood! I think I here a frosted brownie calling my name.
