My Eleven Month Postpartum Update

well i usually don’t talk about me. or the way i look. ESPECIALLY since i had a baby. but here it goes.

Pre/Post Preg Weight: 124lbs pre, 11months out 114lbs

Pre/Post Pre Cup Size: 34C pre, 34C/D post

Postpartum Period: i got this at 6 months PP. & i still get it, however it’s not normal.. i have sometimes 26 day cycles and other months 34 day cycles.

Contraceptive: at my 6week PP checkup my OBGYN prescribed me the pill & the IUD. i went on the ‘mini’ pill (safe for breastfeeding) for 3 whole days, and it made me SICKER then a dog, i was so dizzy, nauseous, headache etc.. needless to say i stopped taking it. We are definitely practicing SAFE sex haha ( i’m 23 and practicing safe sex, i know COOL LIKE THAT )

Clothes Size: shirts small, sometimes medium, Pants depending on the brand a 2-4 is typical

Feel: i FEEL pretty good, i have good and bad days. Some days i feel like i look pretty good after having a baby, other days i still hate my postpartum body. You may or may not know i got a few hundred stretch marks which are silver and they don’t bother me, but what bothers me is the saggy skin it left cause i got SO many of them. it sucks. but i would do it 300 times over to have my sweet baby.

Other: Since i had Oakley, other things have changed. my hair is STILL falling out, it is slowly growing back too ( i have those awesome horns of hair on the top of my forehead ) but mostly falling out haha. My nails wont grown with the crap!! i had really long nice beautiful nails and then i had a baby.. ive noticed i started breaking out again, which sucks, its like i’m 12 again getting my first period which i’m sure coincides with the fact that PP i’m super oily. i think maybe my hormones are still outta wack?

Baby No. 2: HAHA, yea, right 😉 im SUPER DUPER content with my baby boy right now, and maybe down the line we will think about another one.. not any time soon for sure. although my husband definatly wants another one, im just not convinced…

I think that’s about it for me as for an update, if you have any questions feel free to leave a question below and i’ll be happy to answer 🙂

heres me about 10 3/4 months out..

11 Month Postpartum

HAPPY Mothers Day!

HAYYYYYY! So although I’m still posting from my phone 🙁 I wanted to show you all these amazing little photos of my lil man and my sweet nieces. My sister in law & i got this done for mothers day, and think they turned out fabulously. It’s easy when the kids are so darn cute to photograph. Here’s just a few of our favorites. They were taken at a local park just 10 minutes from my house! And although it was cold the kids did great! Photos were taken by Tricia Moskal Photograhy & we couldnt be any happier! I Hope everyone had a magical mothers day and hope you all got spoiled rotten. xox
