I had mines today. Not much to it, I had to fill out paperwork to make sure I'm not stressed or depressed. I lost 20 pounds.. ugh I need to lose 13 more pounds. She pushed on my stomach a few times and asked if I had any pain when she pushed. I had to get my papsmer and she checked the down below area. We also discussed birth control. I have three packs of the mini pill. I don't know when I'm going to start taking it.

Not til the 17th. I went in a week ago for a quick checkup because my incision was bleeding a tiny bit.
I assume all went well with your checkup, it sounds like?

yep, mine was on Tuesday. Nothing unusual, I've lost 16 lbs, still have 14 more to go before I'm back to prepregnancy weight and then I've at least 20 more to lose after that. She did an internal exam and felt breasts and stomach, but didn't have anything to say.
I started the mini pill back up almost two weeks ago, at 4 weeks post partum.

Went in for mine already. Pretty routine. He asked how I was doing, said that I might still go back and forth between light bleeding and some clots for up to 16 weeks if bf'ing, and we talked bc. I told him I am done and signed the consent form for the essure permanent sterilization. As far as weight loss I have 4 pounds left to go before I'm back at pre-pregnancy weight and 30 pounds left before I'm where I want to be although I'll accept 20 pounds if that's as far as I get. Blood work also came back this week and I am extremely anemic so I get to start on iron pills twice a day. Did manage to get written off work for 3 more weeks due to the severe anemia though. :-)

I was on the mini ill with my oldest and I really think it had something to do with my decreased milk supply because I dried up at 6 months. With my 2nd I didn't take it and was able to bf until 9 months before I decided to give it up. This time around I told the dr I didn't want any bc even though we are done having kids. I know the mini pill is supposed to be just fine while bf, but I also think each woman reacts slightly different to it and for each woman in my family who has been on it we have dried up quicker and had horrible periods and spotting.
