Well for starters I cannot believe it has only been 5 weeks, it feels like R has been a part of our little family forever now.
So in total I gained at least 33 pounds, (I didn't weigh myself the last two weeks before R arrived so I am not exactly sure) and I have 8 pounds left to get back to pre-baby weight! I am hoping to get cleared by the Dr to start working out again on Tuesday, but I have a feeling because it was a c-section it will be another 2 weeks, for a total of 8 weeks for recovery, but that is better then the original thought of December 1st!
I have healed up amazingly quickly. I was up walking in about 8 hours as soon as I got the okay for the nurses, and pushed to get discharged a day early, with very little discomfort other then getting up out of bed and from sitting up but that only lasted a couple days. I have been out walking the dogs and the baby whenever I can and getting about 10 km in a week. So I think the quick recovery and breast feeding have enabled the quick weight loss.
Yahh for a very hungry baby which is starting to fuss waiting for me to get to feeding him again!
