I'm 7 weeks PP and havnt started BC yet... I was hoping to lose this baby fat first cause I read that it's nearly impossible to lose weight no matter how hard you try on BC. I'm about 15lbs away from my goal. But will the pill make me gain weight? Is there anyway to lose weight if I'm on it? I just need I fit into all my jeans for the winter! I havnt started exceriszing yet... It's nearly impossible with my newborn and her severe colic. But I eat really healthy. No junk food, no bad snacking, lots of water, and I'm hooked on green tea.
I'm also exclusively pumping... DD can't tolerate my milk with her colic, but I'm pumping so I can keep up my supply so hopefully in another month or so I can nurse again when she grows out of it.
And I'm using the pill. DH is not comfortable with sticking anything up my whoo-ha. And my skin is too sensitive for the patch.
You can lose weight on bc. It might be harder but not impossible. I have been ballooning in the last couple months on bc and just in the last week and a half from trading soda with water and eating lots of smallers I have lost 5lb. I think my body is just adapting but I am optimistic once I start exercising I can keep up some weight loss, BC or not.
