Weight and water retention during breastfeeding personal experience

Back to 2014. The last time that I litteraly was in hospital with the third pregnancy and a “gentle sectio” that I had to push in one of the largest hospitals in The Hague. They had not yet done it and I had done a lot of reading about combination of cesarean and immediately breastfeeding before the umblical cord was cut.

I am happy I am not the one who has to go through this today. I can imagine that pregnant parents are asking themselves a lot of questions today instead of relaxing and enjoy the pregnancy or focus on the preparation for your baby.

Personally I have been struggling since 2014 during the rest of my pregnancy, as you can see on the picture wearing a pink martenity dress. My feet all swollen because of “water retention”

(explained down there)
“Leftover pregnancy fluids that have built up over the past nine months. Moms who experience swelling (aka edema) during pregnancy can be storing up to an additional 6 pounds of fluids! Extra fluid you received during labor. … That extra fluid doesn’t go away right away! “11 nov. 2019”
Postpartum Swelling – What to Expect

So whether this has been researched yes or no in combination with 10 and a half years of continous breastfeeding we do not know.
But my own independent research and experience shows that “water retention” occurs continuously after birth and whilst breastfeeding, and the longer your body still gives the signs and produces those hormones you are not yet done.
During the menstrual cycle the water retention start a week before the cycle, and disappears a little just after the cycle. It comes again during the ”ovulation” 6 to 8 days after menstrual cycle. My cycle goes hand in hand with the moon.

So whether this is how nature does to women like me who gain weight during breastfeeding after pregnancy we cannot conclude this for all women but so far everyone thought breastfeeding helps weight loss. Just like many also thought breastfeeding is a natural contraceptive option. But this varies from woman to woman too.

At the moment the balance is not yet there I am still my own case study with my own children and body.
It’s just that ignorance and capitalism makes us think that we all gained weight by eating yet if you go beyond every situation. Facts do matter and people out there deserve respect of their birthmarks beauty.

We have become slaves of money

FB_IMG_1587626492913It seems as if if we are still failing to use our own senses. We are now failing to question and just do it for some money.
Money has made us slaves such that living without a penny in your wallet drives you crazy.
Oh wait a minute. After writing yesterday about urbanisation and Westernized education. I realised that I touched this too indirectly.
Dependency syndrome is one of them.
Everything is costing money.
Humans are no longer using their hands, their brains, their feet. Even a television is now turned on by s.d simply clapping your hands.

I watched Wall-e with my kids a few years ago and then we watched ‘Geostorm’ Gerard Butler is in there.
These movies were financed to condition us but there is truth in them if you watch using your third eye.
Its happening. How many people are now depending on their gadget to reach out to some information?
How many people do not own a garden? In the times that I grew up, not owning a vegetable garden was embarrassing. Now its alike., when one doesnt own a gadget its embarrassing. Let alone an expensive car yet enough clever people would say ”buy a cow instead of cars” quoted from Ed. lately.
When in the lockdown. Some governments asked people whether they have ideas. They probably gave us the opportunity to think for ourselves and if O were you this is the opportunity to people with business and creative minds to start working hard towards new lifestyles. Not to wait again until the Gvt had come up with that idea you still going to complain about.
Fair enough not everyone has this third eye or opportunities to execute an idea. Yes if money drives us and not the other way round.
As someone who promotes the ”human being” natural health. This COVID19 does not look good at all.
We have to take distance 6 feet from each other.
Yet when you carry babies they get used and would like to ma in brain the cuddling thing. When people cuddle, they feel good. They feel consoled and this reduces psychological problems. I wonder where we are going if we are no longer allowed to touch or feel.
A while ago we talked of why breastfeeding is made difficult. Why carrying of babies is made difficult.
Think about it and answer for yourself.
Right now we as small companies are to teach online. How can we teach if we cannot touch. How can teach how to feel when one doesnt feel how to feel?
The education taught you to wait for a Western experiment to approve the food medicine you have been utilizing for years. Thos scientists have no idea what that is. You know but you still wait for them to prove it to you that it works.
