Re: Really discouraged...how could this be?!

how many days pp are you? I didnt start really loosing till around 4days pp. I think i was only down 12 after we came home from the NICU. He is a week and 2 days and im down 22lbs but gained 35(around that didnt get to make my 39 week apt). Im trying to really eat healthy and drink tons of water bc i know how easy it is to gain back bfing and being hungry ALL day long. One thing i learned with ds2 is just bc im bfing my body doesnt loose i used it as an excuse with him and didnt loose very well. As long as your staying healthy im sure it will come off

Ah ok. Well I an 5 days pp now. I do try to still eat really healthy, I still eat rather low carb. I have been eating a bit more some days, but not unhealthy things. And I drink lots and lots of water. I. Guess I was just expecting too much pp as with ds1 I list 35lbs instantly! But with him I gained 70 lbs..

Re: Really discouraged...how could this be?!

You are down so little for several reasons....any IV fluids are still in....you are up 4# of extra blood volume...your body is retaining fluids after the birth....you are up about 5# for breast milk....give it a couple of weeks and you should be down about 15-20#
