How Far Along? Yesterday would have been my due date, but it was Avery's 1 week birthday!
Maternity Clothes? Heck yes, my tummy is sore and still sticking out.
Weight Gain? As of my due date/one week after giving birth I am 1 pound over my pre pregnancy weight. This is when I am thankful for all the vomiting. This was a wake up call for me, I need to be more conscious of eating. I have been so busy with her, that I forget to eat (I have never had that happen).
Stretch Marks? Yes, but they aren't that bad and she is worth every one.
Sleep? Honestly, I have been pretty lucky on this front, between her being a great baby (most nights) and Ray I have been getting a total of about 5 hours a night and a two hour nap during the day. Oddly I have been sleeping better with a newborn than as a pregnant person!!
Best Moment of the Week? Meeting my baby.
Weirdest Comment: Nothing. I guess it was weird that my doctor reported the wrong date to my insurance company for delivery. That is a little concerning.
Movement? She is a wiggler, her neck is so strong, even the doctor was surprised and made a comment about it. It does sometimes make it hard to burp her.
What I miss? I had a glass of sangria and I am just not feeling the alcohol right now. I thought about all the types of fruity girly drinks I missed while pregnant, but have no desire to drink any of them now.
Symptoms: It is absolutely amazing the changes your body makes in just one week. All of my skin issues have disappeared completely. My hips and hand soreness is also gone. I don't have to pee constantly and I sleep well now. As for my new recovery symptoms, I have to say they are worse than I thought they would be. Now that might be due to my muscles being so weak after 9 weeks of bed rest, but I would rather go through labor again than the recovery! The only other thing I should mention is how emotional I am. I will cry twice a day. It's funny, I didn't think I would have this issue, since I wasn't all that emotional when pregnant, but wow it hit me!!!
What I'm looking forward to? I am looking forward to spending time with Avery and doing all the firsts together!!! I will do another post about all of the firsts so far!
Weekly Wisdom: Be prepared for your recovery. Even an easy vaginal birth takes a lot out of you. And rely on your husband as much as you can for the first few days.
Milestones: Tons, I will put in another post!
Emotions: Super emotional. There are so many things you have to do when you have a baby (insurance, Dr. Appt, thank you notes, etc) I really struggle with taking the time to just hang with her and forget about the other crap that can wait.
