I'm so HUNGRY!!!!

I know it is from breastfeeding and all the pumping, but I am really hungry quite constantly.

At first it was fine because I was losing weight, but since I've been on the minipill (about 6 weeks), I've gained 3-4 lbs.

I'm not happy about this at all, but know I can't "diet" because of breastfeeding and I just signed up t donate milk because I am producing so much that we can't go through it and I want to donate for at least a month or so.

I'm eating healthy, but even the healthy foods start adding up when you want to eat every 30 mins to an hour. lol!

Breastfeeding makes me ravenous too. I could seriously eat all day and night long some days. Don't stress the weight, the mini pill messes me up too. I was losing weight steadily until I started it then I hit a wall (started it at only 2 weeks PP) and didn't lose a pound for TWO MONTHS!! I'm still up 12 pounds right now :doh: but have lost 5 in the last month or so finally.

Anyway...just wanted to say I feel ya on the hunger. And WTG on the donating milk, that's great! I can hardly keep up with my own baby.

I am also up about four pounds. :/ I'm working out a lot and part of it is regaining all that muscle I lost while I was so sick the whole pregnancy. But I can eat nonstop. Between breast feeding and the gym, my appetite is through the roof.
