So I plan to BF #2 for at least 9 months like i did DS (before i had to return back to work) or hopefully longer.. but one thing I am terrified of is the fact when i BF DS, I retained my weight from pregnancy. I put on a lot of weight whole pregnant (30 kilos!!) so yes that was ridiculous! But BF didn't help me lose any at all. In fact i was hungrier than when pregnant!!
I lost all the weight plus an extra 5 kilos by the time i feel preg with this one.... but now the weight is creeping on and I am starting to feel upset that once the baby is born, ill be massive and ill be BF and will remain over weight again for several months again.
My mother is in my ear all the time reminding me how much weight i put on so I am best not to BF at all. But i can't bring myself to putting my 'weight' before my baby .. this is the chance i have to set my bub up for their life. So fat or not, im gonna do it.
Is anyone else in the same boat at all? Everyone i know in real life boasts how BF helped them lose all their weight. But that doesn't happen for me at all. I finally started losing weight once i stopped BF.
Can anyone recommend any BF weight loss diets or anything so i can have it ready for when the time comes? I feel like i need a plan in place this time round.
