3 weeks post partum

I can't believe my baby boy is three weeks old. I threw my friend a baby shower today and as I watched her touch and prod her belly I felt a slight ache and a feeling of nostalgia missing the feeling of my little man curled up in my tummy. For once they are born they grow up way to fast for my liking!

As I got ready for the shower today I debated about what to wear. Due to having a c-section Its still hard to wear jeans over my incision. And since I'm nursing I needed to find something that was easily accessible to feed an infant. So I decided on the dress I wore for my maternity pictures and that led to this comparison

First pic taken at 36 weeks and last one taken today! Only 4 more pounds to go till I reach pre baby weight. However I need to lost about 15 pounds to reach pre- wedding weight hehe. A weight I haven't been in about 4.5 years. Hmmm

As for my recovery Its going good. I'm def in more pain this time around but I think that's more to do with having a second c section 15 months after the first and all the scar tissue the dr said I had. I also now have a toddler to entertain and chase after whereas when Gianna was born I could spend all day cuddling on the couch with her.

All in all though my c section experience was great and of course the end result is one super cute little boy

  1. i cant wait to have another baby, but i can WAIT for another c-section. that is the ONLY thing that i would be nervous about when the time comes for #2. my first was unplanned [baby flipped, last second] so now if i want my doc/my hospital to deliver VBAC is not an option. :(

  2. You look great! And I totally know what you mean about the aching in your belly, thinking about your little one in there. It makes me sad to know I won't ever feel that again!

  3. You look awesome girl!!! 4lbs pshh you can do this!!! Looking great and that dress is so cute!

  4. You look great for only 3 weeks post partum!
