Random letdown

As I previously mentioned, I hadn't been letting down and/or hadn't been feeling it. Not Anymore! All day yesterday and today I've been feeling it. And just randomly. I was driving to pickup Alex from preschool and I randomly letdown so I had to walk into MDO/Preschool with wet spots on my shirt as I hadn't been wearing a pads.

I don't remember how long it it took me to stop just randomly letting down.

ETA, my appetite has been crazy! I have more of an appetite now than I ever did while PG with Max. But I've already lost 20 lbs from my weight at the time I delivered. I haven't weighed this in a loooooooooong time. I lost weight while PG so I'm definitely down from my pre-pg weight. Yahoo

That's awesome about the weight loss! I'm only down 13lbs since the birth. I'd like to lose an additional 30 to make up for what I gained on all the fertility drugs.

I only seem to let down when he's nursing. I never felt it with DD.

Congrats on losing the weight! Way to go! That must be an incredible feeling.
I gained 35lbs, but am down to about 5 lbs more than I was pre-pregnancy. I guess with a 10+ lb baby and all the swelling, I really didn't have much else. Now my problem will be keeping it off and losing the rest that I want to (another 25+lbs). My appetite is CRAZY when I am BFing and I tend to actually gain a few lbs while the babe is nursing because I overdo it on the food.
I have the random let down a lot too. Such a weird thing. I also tend to let down if I realize it's been more than 2 hours since Cam has nursed. It's like the thought of her nursing gets my body in that mode. With my other two, if I thought of them while I was at work, I would let down. It's amazing how our hormones and emotions are connected.

Great job on the weight!! I'm also down 20 but have another 25 to go before I'm pre preg size Wink

My appetite is crazy too, I was just telling ppl this the other day! I've been trying to make good healthy choices and found I really like kelloggs brand fiber plus stuff. Never thought I'd say that!

With the letdown, I will have it if she's crying, or my other dd gets upset or I look at them n get sentimental lol the lily pads help bc I can feel the tingle but I can usually stop it or do something about it before I get a wet shirt.

I have a let down while nursing and have random let downs.
I gained a total of 40 lbs. and I'm down 30 with ten more to go before I'm back to my pre-pregnancy weight-- I'd like to lose 25-30 more after that as well.
I don't have much of an appetite and when I do, I rarely can actually finish a meal, lol.
