I am breastfeeding and told if my pcos symptoms came back and I wanted to go back on my metformin it was safe for the baby and would not affect her.

Your PCOS could definitely be coming into play here. The first step would be to talk to your doctor. He should check your hormone levels, your thyroid, your blood sugar levels, etc. You mention using your exercise bike which is a good thing, but you may need to add some light weight or strength training as well. You don't mention your diet, but a diet high in lean protein and low in carbohydrates is best. The carbohydrates you do eat should be the complex type, green leafy vegetables, and those with lots of color like peppers, cabbage, broccoli, squash, etc, whole fruits, and whole grains like oats, 100% whole wheat, brown rice, etc. Cut down or eliminate simple carbohydrates such as soda, juices, other sweetened beverages, white bread, chips, cakes, cookies, candy, etc. In PCOS, there is often insulin resistence. That means that your body does not use insulin correctly, and more calories are stored as fat. A lot of doctors will start women on a drug called metformin which helps with insulin resistence and weight gain, but it is important to talk to your doctor first about your symptoms.
