So today I am thinking about my diet. When I was pregnant my tummy was so small I could.barely eat. In fact, just trying to ear some delicious Christmas food made me.vomit!
Now, I am starving 24/7 and I can eat and eat.and drink and drink (sooo thirsty). So how much is too much? With Sawyer I cut back too much and had lots of.trouble making enough milk because I was so worried about losing the baby weight.
With these two I am eager to lose the weight, but more confident I will since I did last time (and then.some). But.I don’t want to over eat and gain weight (yes I am vain and my weight matters to me, not more than my babies, but a heck of a lot).
So far I have just been eating small snacks when I am hungry but today I have noticed a big drop in my milk supply. I am not sure if it’s me, and then if it’s diet related or maybe they are just drinking a lot more, or nursing more successfully?
These early weeks are tough because every day is different AMD as someone who craves routine and order (ie. A control freak) it can be tough and even frustrating. I try to remind myself it is normal and that each day is a new and different day, which is good because that means eventually I will sleep again, but tough because I am worried about the girls and doing the best I can for them.
Today June slept over 5 hours straight! Sadly it was not at night and Sansa was still up, and unexpected so I did not get sleep, which I wished I had. They seem to be good in the mornings so tomorrow I may try and sneak out to Marshalls (it’s only a block.away on my street) with Sawyer to spend some time with him and get out of the house for a bit. Fingers crossed!
