Loving My Mommy Body (Georgia)

May 17, 2010

Original entry here.

So here is my update, I am 12 days postpartum. I had my son on his due date which was really great! He weighed 7 pounds 7 ounces and was 20 inches long. I had a few hours of tough back labor then had the epidural. Best experience of my life. So like I said before, I gained 22 pounds. It stayed that way until the end, I was 180. Pre pregnancy weight was 158 and yesterday I weighed 160. So 2 pounds left to go! I breastfed for a week, but for many different reasons I decided to stop. He took to the bottle right away and things are going much better.

I love my body so far. My tummy is a little softer, and I did end up with stretch marks but they arent too bad. My husband said he loves my new body because it “It makes me a woman”. I love that. I dont mind my stretch marks at all. I earned them. and I would have taken more of them for my son.

Here’s some pics of me 12 days PP, and of my handsome little man.

Updated here and here.

    Remind me to gain only 22 pounds my next pregnancy! That’s very good for you – I gave in to way too many cravings and gained just a bit over 40 lbs…sounds awesome to have 2 lbs to go – at that stage I had about 22!!

    You look incredible! Only 2 weeks pp and aside from a few stretch marks, I’d never guess you had a baby :)
