Postpardum Survey-1 Month Later

How far along were you when you had your baby? 40 weeks and 6 days.
How long was labor? A little over 7 hours. Got the IV started at 7 AM and had her at 2:08 pm.
Total weight gain: I think 41 lbs. which is what I had gained with Graydon!  Interesting...
Total weight loss since: 21 lb.s and 20 more to go. At this point with Graydon I had already lost 30?!  I can tell you that part of the problem is all the junk food in our house lately and the fact that I have been snacking non stop. Ugh!!
Back into your own clothes yet? Just some shirts. None of my pants unfortunately....
Did you get stretch marks? Yes I got some new ones this time...ohhh what are you going to comes with the territory! Proud of my belly.
Did you deliver vaginally or by c-section? Vaginally thank goodness!
Best moment this week: Nora smiling now, seeing Graydon be really sweet to her. Watching her grow, makes me happy but sad.
What I miss about being pregnant:  Nothing yet honestly. I do enjoy the movement but this past time around she hurt me all the time when she moved!
How big is baby: He was 8 lbs. 9 oz. at birth and I believe over 9 lbs. now!
Baby's temperament? She is a good baby when dry and full or sleeping. Likes to fuss otherwise and really like to be held. Lately if she is full I can put her down for short periods of time in the swing or bouncy chair, but only for a short while.
What I am looking forward to: All the cute clothes that will be coming with the next stages! 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!

I copied some of this from my previous survey with Graydon, but hey A LOT of it was the same, and I am feeling the same!

One thing is add is that I am emotionally better this time around and have barely cried etc. Things have been really good.

Hey dear! Glad to see a postpartum update from you. Remember to continue to relax as much as you can even though you are a month out! Mama's need pampering too. ;) Hugs!
