6 Weeks Postpartum:

I had my 6 week postpartum checkup this week. Of course it went very well. The tech came in and told me to undress.. blah, blah. Well of course this is when Baby A decides she's hungry. So I fed her while they examined me. Babies always pick the "perfect" time to need to eat, right?! Needless to say, I milked all over the place :o)

As far as my female parts - Things looked great, and I was finally released to start exercising again. I had already started to do small things here and there, but to have the confirmation that everything was good to go was very relieving. I now can start back working out and running in this pretty weather that we have been having lately. I am so ready to get back into the gym and lift like I was before. I am excited to start the adventure of seeing how much my body will go back to normal.

As far as weight loss, I have lost about 25 lbs since having her. I am at the weight I wanted to be before I started working out again. My hips and stomach are still shrinking on their own, so I can not wait until my body is completely done doing it's thing so I can start losing the extra layer of fat that was added while pregnant.

For those of you interested, I still will be tracking my fitness. I am taking postpartum pictures but I will not be uploading them until I start making true progress with working out.

Baby A has her 2 month appointment in a couple of weeks. When she goes, I will be able to share her weight and length. I know she is growing so much, but it seems that she is getting a lot longer and has not hit the point of getting the baby fat - those cute  baby rolls. She still wears newborn clothes and diapers, too. We weighed her on the Wii the other day, and she weighed in at 8.5 lbs. We stretched her out yesterday to get an estimate of her length, and it looks like she is around 21 inches long. As much as I am ready to see her achieve new milestones, I really hate that she is growing so fast.

At some point when I have some time, I will write about our labor and delivery story too.

Happy Friday!
