I went into labor Sunday evening October 5th and gave birth to my love on top October 6th at 4:51 am. He weighed 7 lbs and 2 oz. I went in weighing 206 lbs and came out weighing who knows what. All I can tell you is nothing went as planned. I had an emergency C-section and was given so many iv bags I lost count. I ended up swollen as all get out. I couldn’t fit anything. I’m glad I brought leggings and crocs because I would have had to leave in the hospital gown.
2 weeks postpartum. ..
I weight 189.4 lbs, that puts me at 21 lbs over my pre-pregnancy weight and 17 lbs down from the 38lbs I gained overall. I did good even though I didn’t want
to gain that much. The last month of my pregnancy was crazy. The weight seem to come from nowhere. It seems like I would gain 3 lbs each week instead of the 1 lb. It had to be water retention.
Speaking of retention, I’m so glad I have ankles again and my feet no longer look like two Italian beef sandwiches. There is still swelling but I look so much better. I just wish
I was back in my clothes and I didn’t have an apron belly. That means have to work harder to get back right.
Any C-section mommies? How did you get back
normal? Pain, weight, most importantly your stomach. ..
