Final pregnancy weight: 215 lb
Pre-pregnancy weight: 165 lb
Yes, I know I should not be losing weight while breastfeeding or trying to, rather, but since that is an eventual goal as well, I will be tracking my healing process. I do not have a scale to hand, since it is upstairs, but I am noticing a slimming in my body as it slowly goes back to what it was before I got pregnant. I have the mommy pouch, which is also healing from the c-section, but I know that is a process and I know it will likely never go completely away. I am just looking for the swelling to go down and the area (inside and out) to heal properly. I am only 1.5 weeks postpartum.
Breastfeeding goes well, especially since the pediatrician gave me some tips on how to more efficiently feed. The boys seem to be taking well to this, even if they get grumpy that it's only x minutes per side and switch to brother. I am more able to gauge their hunger cues and diaper changes since they are on a schedule, and they are less apt to need the formula supplement (but we have it just in case, or in case the boys go on a field trip to my folks' house). That reminds me, I need to get my folks a can of the formula that the pediatrician gave us for such a purpose. That way there will be something there to go with.
I am swimming in a pile of thank you notes to be written, and that is okay...even though I am still working on the deal of untangling my days and nights because if my work schedule wasn't enough, now I have no structure besides every 2-3 hours feeding, diaper changes, and the hubs peeking in from his work upstairs for food or whatnot. (He who remains asleep this morning, bless him.)
As for my writing on the site, I am slowly gaining my muse again so I hope to be working on my backlog slowly, as well as working on a writing project of my own offsite. Fatigue is my new shadow, so I am still very slow.
