I did find out some upsetting news this weekend. I have been taking domperidone to help my milk supply. My doctor had suggested back in February that I could wean off of the medication but I had chosen not to because it gives me some peace of mind and I did not want to be stressed out all the time about my supply like I was with Alexandra. Well, I found out that domperidone can cause weight gain! Now there is no way to know if it is the medication that is causing me not to lose but I think it might play a large part. I haven't been 100% good all the time but when I was training for the marathon I was exercising more than I have ever exercised before and I didn't lose much at all. So I have decided that I think it is time to wean off the medication because I want to lose the weight, Zoe is old enough and I think my supply is well established and if I freak out I will take some herbs or have some nursing tea. I am scared though, I just need to have confidence.
Today I did my run! I made a promise to myself and I stuck to it! Woohoo! I feel so good. I like getting the run out of the way early. I did it during nap time because I was too tired to get up early. But I don't really care when I do it as long as I get it done.
