Postpartum Survey-1 Month

How far along were you when you had your baby? 40 weeks and 3 days.
How long was labor? About 8.5 hours...pretty good for a first baby; it seemed to happen so fast.
Total weight gain: 41 lbs. when I last weighed myself 3 days prior to Graydon's birth.
Total weight loss since: 30 lbs. 11 more to go! I need to stop eating all the yummy Fall treats I keep indulging in!
Back into your own clothes yet? For the most part except most of my pants do not fit yet.
Did you get stretch marks? Yes but they are not that bad. They did not become visible until after I had Graydon and my stomach went down.
Did you deliver vaginally or by c-section? Vaginally with no epidural. I am thankful that I was able to have an all-natural, med-free birth.
Best moment this week: Graydon smiling at us more and more.
What I miss about being pregnant: Feeling him moving inside me.
How big is baby: He was 8 lbs. 7 oz. at birth and a little over 9 lbs. now.
Baby's temperament? He is only content if he is dry and just ate...he likes to fuss a lot.
What I am looking forward to: Graydon becoming more interactive and sleeping more at night. Fitting into all of my pants. To be healed up, stop bleeding, and feeling normal down there. And sex. You know, all of the usual. :) OH and being able to start working out and start running again!

One month later!

You lost 30 pounds in 1 month? AMAZING. You look better than I looked before I got pregnant. I hope I'm as lucky as you!

Anne!! You look so great!! All the after baby stuff WILL get better!! I promise. As far as Mr. Fuss Fuss, I recommend reading Happiest Baby on the Block. If you don't own it already, I would be happy to mail it to you! I don't need it anymore...text me if you'd like that.
