Hey everyone! Last Thursday I was six weeks postpartum! I am feeling great, “almost” back to how I felt pre-pregnancy. I still have the Linea Negra, it is slowly fading but still visible. Apparently not everyone gets this but I definitely do! I didn’t get any stretch marks on my belly, and due to good genes, moderate weight gain and steady exercise throughout my pregnancy my abdomen is almost fully healed and the bump is long gone. I seriously cannot believe there was a little girl in there 6 short weeks ago. So for now its all’bout dat base and the boobs 😉 I am still about 7-8lbs over my pre-pregnancy weight but that is slowly going down each week and once I get back in to my workout routine that will help tighten up all the muscles that got a vacation the last 6 months or so. I was able to get in my first real work out last week and I was sore for about three days, but it was the best feeling I could imagine!
I wanted to talk a little bit about nursing, I love feeding my baby and have had a great experience “so far” in nursing both of my babies. In the first ten days I had a huge oversupply but after a week and half I normalized and have enough to feed Sofia without any sort of discomfort or being engorged. [happy dancing] Nursing definitely feels easier the second time around and I would say I am almost a pro at it, or rather Sofia is! 😉 We nurse on demand, no schedules for this little one. At nighttime we nurse every 3-4 hours and during the day it ranges from every 30 mins to every other hour. Sofia is good at sleeping during the night and getting lots of milk during the day.
If anyone is looking for a cute nursing cover I highly recommend your click your way over to Covered Goods! I am a huge advocate of nursing your baby and feeling free to feed your baby in any setting, but the only person I want seeing my boobs is the guy I married. This cover is designed with 360* coverage as well super comfortable and easy to use! And did I say pretty?!
Last of all I am still seeing my chiropractor about once a week and after having a baby inside me for 9 months its nice to have all my bones back in the right place, I feel a little better everyday! I have had some back aches from nursing but some simple exercise as well as supported nursing positions has made a world of difference.
