Call WIC and ask to be seen sooner. See if you can in to a local LLL (la leche league) meeting they are free.

WIC out here is sort of stupid and they won't see you until your appointment and if you have to reschedule it is after your original appointment. As for LLL I don't know if there is one close to me so I will have to look that up.

That is what I did to conceive my oldest, NFP and I can do that method fairly reliably but when I don't have a period it is hard to do:/

Thank you momma's. I think I am just going to stop the pill for now and see if anything improves. Hopefully it does or else I am back to square one again!

Im not a fan of condoms either but while our insurance is switching over I ran out of BC and we had no choice other than no sex and thats just not an option.I have to come find we really dont mind condoms as long as its the right kind. Clean up is much faster for both of us and we use the ultra thin ones by trojan (bare skin i think) and although there is some difference its better than no sex for months.

I can't stand condoms at all and DH can't either because it makes it harder for him since he is not cut. I guess there is pull-out lol if we want sex. IDK we will figure oit out. As for me I think tonight (last night since it is 12am) is going to be my last pill and hopefully my supply goes back to normal!

Your hand shouldn't be itchy either. Sounds like it could be a mild allergy. I would suggest trying a non latex condom and see if that helps.

I just wanted to post an update:)



So Sunday was my last night taking the pill (took it before my post) and Bubba has been so much happier it is astonishing! He has been a lot more content, pooping every day and his poop is going back to yellow (right now is a dark brownish yellow). Guess I am going to be off BC until I am done nursing so DH isn't too happy but he can suck it up:) Not to mention even though BC helped me in the beginning it sort of made me worse after that initial time and in just the few days I haven't taken it I feel so much better myself and have actually been happy again!

lol well I am just happy that was the cause and not something else like me being pregnant again :shock: Get to start solids soon seeing as he is nearing the 5 month mark and hopefully he won't be like his brother and start weaning at 11 months but we will see what happens!
