I recently went to the nurse for my Depo Provera jab and she told me that I needed to be drinking a pint of milk a day to replace the calcium that gets leached from my bones by the jab, no one had told me about this before. Apparently you are only supposed to be on it for 2 years at a time, no one had told me that either and before I had Ash I had been on it for 4 years. Heaven knows what state my bones are in now!! Anyway, carrying Ash around and drinking loads of milk and yogurt should help for now.
The other thing she said was that I had lost a load of weight since having Ash and that I needed to put more on. I only usually weigh around 8 stone (I'm a tiddler!) and I had dropped to nearly 7 and a half. The problem I have is that I find it very difficult to put on weight and always have, due to a very active lifestyle, nervous disposition and just feeling too full if I eat a lot. I am managing to drink the pint of milk a day just fine though, so do you think that will help me put on weight? Are there any other simple foods that I could eat most days that would help? Just eating loads is not really an option for my stomach.
Please, please, no comments about how lucky I am to be thin!! I would really like to be bigger, around about a stone bigger, and then I would be much more healthy, be able to give Ash better milk and have more energy.
