The first month was all one big day. Feeding every 3 hours and healing from my C-Section. Trying to sleep and having both my mom and my mother in law watching Naomi so I could get 4-5 hour naps during the day. I will always be grateful for that. Pretty sure that's how I kept my sanity.
The second month was much better. We had a predictable eating/wake/sleep schedule and it was at 6 weeks that she started to sleep for 6 hour stretches. Then at 7 weeks it turned into 6-8 and has since stayed. It was when she was in her 8th week she got sick (and is just barely about over it. Two more days of antibiotics) and it has put us in a bit of a stand still on progress.
Not just her progress, but mine too. She was very needy and finding time to exercise was pretty much non existent. And I've felt 100% fine to exercise since 5 weeks post partum.
I'm much more motivated now to exercise and finish loosing the weight than I was 2 weeks ago. Maybe it's the new year. Maybe it's because there is only 6 months to the half marathon I'm really hoping to run and it's been just over 4 months since I've exercised. Which means I'm super super out of shape. And running today proved that.
I lost another pound so I'm at 115 (remember - fake numbers). 15 pounds to lose till I'm at my pre pregnancy weight (and wearing my skinny clothes again).
Here are some visuals.
This first one was taken just 4 days after I found out I was pregnant. I was 5 weeks and weighed 100 lbs (I wish).
Annnd today. At 115. It tried to wear the same clothes. I am wearing the same pants and the same shirt except it has three quarter length sleeves and is green. But the size and brand/style is the same.
I'll probably post other pre pregnancy pictures. They are highly motivating. And it's so funny how I used to wish I was smaller and now I am trying so very hard to get back to that point.
p.s. I totally think I look 15 weeks pregnant in these pictures.
