Had my annual exam today, finally – about a year overdue. I like the new practice (moved back home from school end of May) I’m going to here; it’s the big clinical one in town, but I like the efficiency and professional competence.
The NP thinks that it will be difficult to conceive again as long as I continue to nurse V., since ovulation will be unpredictable or not at all… I’m on my 4th cycle post-partum right now, and they have been 26 days, 45 days, and 32 days so far. Temping has been irregular as well, so I couldn’t say for sure when or whether any ovulation is occuring. Another incentive to work on weaning is that I have a small sore on the right npl, which is painful and won’t heal. The NP said it looked like “trauma” and to put neosporin on it and work towards weaning. At least it’s not thrush.
The best part of the appointment? My blood pressure is a healthy 100/60, and I’ve lost another 5 lbs.!
