I haven't updated in a while. Motherhood was at its peak these past few days after the new arrival took its toll in our lives. It has been a month since I gave birth to baby #3 and meeting the quirky demands of 3 kids is quite a handful, I must say. I learned to carry 2 "heavy" little people all at the same time. And when I sit, it was always the same thing, still 2 elves sit on my lap. Aaahh motherhood, bittersweet! After all the baby mania, the inner woman in me is saying that baby no. 3 is and should be the last one. I mean, I was desperately hoping for a girl but 3 kids is exxxhhaaaauuusting! And so, to further stop my baby making tendencies, I decided to try on the pill. I've never been a pill user. Trying out one gave me the jitters. And so, off I went to my ob. She prescribed 2 kinds of pill: EXCLUTON and CERAZETTE. Ob said, these are intended for breastfeeding moms, the only difference is the price- with Cerazette being more expensive than the other. I decided to try on Cerazette believing that the more expensive one works best with lesser side-effects. And because I'm so O.A when it comes to anything that sparks my o.a-ness, I researched the pill many times over, digested and almost memorized the info from their webbie (yikes!). I've read from forums, countless women whine about the downside of the product. Horror stories are aplenty..which is a good thing though, at least I've got a foothold on what to expect.
|my first pill pack :)|
I started my first pill pack this month. I have also set my phone's alarm at the same time each day. I've never missed a pill, I'm extremely careful now. It's been almost 3 weeks since I started poppin' it, and the verdict? I think this pill's the right one for yours truly. I haven't noticed an additional pound, no nausea, no headaches, no pimple breakouts...It was like I'm not taking anything at all. There was an initial bout of spotting but then it stopped and now, it's completely gone. So hurray to Cerazette and yay to a worry-free me. :)
for those of you who wish to try Cerazette, try visiting their site www.cerazette.co.uk for additional info because the leaflet enclosed in their packages are sometimes out of date.
