I gained a recommended amount of weight during my pregnancy, 34 pounds. Though I was pushing it a little since I was only supposed to gain between 25-35. After baby, the pounds fell off for the first few weeks until they didn’t.
These last 10+ pounds have inspired me to return to weight watchers. At 5’2, extra weight shows easily and quickly. I’m hoping to lose around 15-20 pounds (since I started my pregnancy of the higher end of my usual weight.)
Starting weight: 142
Goal weight; 120-125
Can’t wait to fit back into all my pre-pregnancy clothes. I can’t afford a new wardrobe and I don’t want to start buying clothes in larger sizes than what I know is a healthy weight/size for me. So, here begins my journey towards becoming a fit mom and my return to being a fit teacher.
For the past three out of four nights babyjib has slept between 8-9 hours. I love love love her!
teaching-everydayisdifferent asked: What has surprised you the most about parenthood (so far)?
Probably how much time I spend staring at her. I am so captivated by her that I just stare. Sometimes it’s out of bewilderment but still ;)
Also, how extremely tired I am.
tomes-away asked: What's her personality shaping up to be? Mellow or high maintenance? Laid back or energetic? Does she nap? How're YOU doing? (Lots of questions, so much curiosity)
Bea’s personality is a combination of curious, dramatic, content, and fickle. The girl can eat and lets you know when she’s hungry (hence her dramatic tendencies.)
Overall I’d say she’s pretty mellow and loves loves loves to be held. She’s a solid napper and sleeper when she’s got a full tummy.
Hubby and I are doing well and still adjusting. We love this tiny human so much it’s unreal. The first two weeks were tough, it felt like I was on a hamster wheel of feeding, sleeping, holding, diaper changing, etc.
Here we are at week three and it’s starting to feeling like we have some sort of routine. Or maybe I’ve just embraced the total lack of routine that it now feels normal???
Final thought - I’m glad to have such an awesome husband.
