So, I stopped breastfeeding. After I finished the Reglan, my supply dropped so low that I couldn't even nurse him in the morning anymore. I made it to 1 day shy of 3 months, and I know that's the best I could do. What I was pumping really wasn't worth the time and effort it was taking, so I am at peace with this. Honestly, I spent too much time getting frustrated and crying over it, so it was a huge relief when I stopped. I still miss it, but I know it was time to let it go.
Allowing my milk to dry up sucked. It was painful, and I kept second guessing myself, but it's over now.
I'm switching from the mini-pill to a regular estrogen/progesterone pill now.* Hopefully that will help with my PCOS symptoms, goodness knows I need it. I'm still on the Metformin, but that only helps me so much. Meanwhile, the pill should prevent cysts for me at least and give me a regular cycle since I don't do that on my own.
As for the weight loss... yeah, I haven't been on the treadmill in awhile. But, since I stopped breastfeeding, I've been watching my calories. I'm in week one, otherwise known as the hunger stretch! I always find the first couple of weeks the hardest, as my body adjusts. I feel hungry all the time, but it's not a bad hunger. It's bearable, I mean I'm not starving, I'm just wishing for more. I know that once I adjust, it'll be fine. Getting there can be tough though! So no real progress to report but I'm taking it a step at a time.
I really need to get motivated on the exercise. Maybe schedule out some time for A to watch V while I work out- and then, no excuses for not getting it done. I really want to start jogging regularly again, and I do miss yoga too. The weather is starting to get nicer, so I want to start taking V for walks in his stroller too. I think he'd like that anyway.
*eta: I don't know if I'm switching now. The nurse was concerned about my clotting disorders and taking estrogen pills. I think since mine are minor clotting issues, and I'm on low-dose aspirin, it should be fine, but what do I know. So I guess we'll see what happens. I have to talk to them again Monday. I may need to consider other options there.
