The contest I’m participating in started on 6/12 (~10 weeks postpartum) so that is my baseline for weigh-in & measurements. Today’s weigh-in (~15 weeks postpartum) is 210 even.
My measurements have been making a steady downward trend (the biggies of waist and hip at least) since I started. I did not include a bust measurement because 1) it varies so much according to time of day with nursing and 2) it is so large right now that it is depressing! I went from a B/C (depending on how small I am) to a DDD/E with pregnancy and nursing. I.hate.it. This is not sexy. This is not fun. I am pretty sure that I gained at least 5 pounds in my bust. Ridiculous!
I’m happy to be down a pound this week. I only exercised once last week and ate like a crazy person for 2-3 days in there. Peri was smack dab in the middle of the 3 month growth spurt. She replaced sleeping with nursing all night. My appetite was insane.
I was also exhausted because the baby was up 4 times a night between midnight and 6 AM. I haven’t had too many meltdowns during this infant phase, but I had one during her 6 week growth spurt and this one. I’m not a GIF queen like Kara but if I were, I would insert a gif of Nettie from the Color Purple standing at the fence screaming “Why? Why?” as Mister drove her from his farm and her sister. That’s how I felt everytime Peri woke me up last week!
The evil growth spurt started over the 4th of July and lasted until that next Wed. To make matters even more fun, I caught a cold and had to fight that just as she finally started sleeping. I finally got to get some rest and then I couldn’t breathe while I slept. Fun times I tell you!
Thanks goodness last week is over! I hope to recover this week, exercise a little more, and put up some decent numbers. I want out of the 200′s.
