One month update, wow! The baby is sleeping a couple of longer stretches now, which is so nice. So that means (a little) more sleep for everyone else. Some days I feel like I’m surviving purely on caffeine and adrenaline though. My body isn’t really sore anymore, and swelling has gone down (although I still get crazy night sweating which is a normal side effect from nursing, and your body trying to regulate the roller coaster hormones in a woman’s body after pregnancy).
Still having the freezer meals and breakfasts with some homemade meals and snacks thrown in there (when permitted). Eating mostly healthy, clean food, paired with some not-so healthy food. Trying to keep the calories up for nursing, but I’m slowly cleaning up the diet part.
The last couple weeks I started doing light weights, pelvic floor exercises, and walking every day. This feels SO good even when I’m tired, it actually energizes me.
I haven’t weighed myself yet, but have my doctors checkup soon that I will get an official number. I did measure myself though, and compared with my first post-pregnancy I’m measuring at where I was at 4.5 months post-partum last time, woo! I still have a bunch of work ahead, but I’m excited- it’s nice to have something to work towards.
