My littlest man was born at 38 weeks, 6 days weighing 6 lbs. 7 ounces. He is a tiny little peanut but perfect in every way and a champion eater.
I happened to snag one last bump photo a couple of days before he was born which was good because he came a bit early!
My labor was long (18 hours) and hard, but he’s such an amazing baby (just sleeps, eats and snuggles) that I forgave him pretty quickly for making me work so hard to get him out! 😉 I will be doing a postpartum series documenting weight loss; fat loss; and exercise over the next several weeks. I finished the pregnancy at 158 pounds (for a 31 pound weight gain) and after 1 week I’m 142 pounds. My body doesn’t really kick into losing weight until a few months after so I don’t expect to lose any pounds for a little bit but I am hoping to start regaining some muscle.
Once I pass the six week mark, I plan on doing a three month weight training program to help build up my core, upper body and overall body strength. In addition I’ll be incorporating more cardio to hopefully assist in dropping a few pounds. My number one priority will be making sure I can continue breastfeeding the little guy, but with my other two babies, I was able to exercise quite intensely and it had no noticeable affect on my milk supply, so I’m hoping that will prove the same this time around as well!
