did you eat a lot during pregnancy? I know I ate exceptionally more than normal and I've got difficulty losing the extra weight that is not really related to pregnancy even though i'm breastfeeding.Hi all,
I have a 2 and 1/2 month old baby and shes on exclusive breastfeed from 2nd month onwards, first month were supplementing abit of formula but also bfeed quite alot. I dont't know why my weight just refuse to go down after losing just 2kg at most over these 2 and 1/2 month!
I normally have cereal like banana nut crunch for breakfast, lunch will be cai fan (less rice more vege) dinner also home cooked food.. I seldom snack, just oatmeal or Milo when hungry. And I always feels hungry through out the day especially after 8pm I willbe hungry but I never snack not even drink Milo! And wait till breakfast.
So why am I not losing weight at all?! It's so demoralizing as I can't wear anything from my wardrobe anymore.. And I read that we should lose about 2-3kg per month from Wong baby's book.. I already did not lose much (at most 5kg) after labour and I still have 10kg to go. Argh!!
Am I supposed to exercise? I'm taking care of my baby alone, hardly anytime for myself how to exercise. Can I do skipping so fast after labour? I'm worried about hurting my back though, felt some aches from the epidural site already.
So upsetting! What am I doing wrong? Is my baby not drinking enough from me that's why? But she's gaining weight really well, pediatrician is saying she's definely above Average. Or am I supposed to nurse all the time and not pump? I do replace 2 feeds a day to express and feed bottle EBM. But this doesn't make sense too. I see friends losing real fast without exercise but why am I not?
Any advise? Im so depressed from this now
