| 7 months postpartum | It feels like yesterday I was carrying around this bump.. I feel very normal - Except for the fact that my "time of the month" hasn't yet returned... Anyone else get that? (100% sure I'm not pregnant - I've checked 😂). Hair is still falling out, alot! The line on my tummy (linea nigra) is completely gone, and I still have loose skin - I'm working on filling it out with muscle 😂😂. For those of you who have asked, I do have stretch marks. They go all the way up to my belly button! I feel it's really important to accept and love your new body at all it's stages in life - Especially after pregnancy and childbirth. You can let it eat at you or you can embrace it. I don't hate my stretch marks. I honestly think if people see, they care for like 30 seconds then they never think of it again. All my baby weight is long gone - im actually smaller than I was before I fell pregnant! I weighed myself a couple weeks ago haha. At 5 weeks postpartum I was 70.9kg and now I'm 63kg 😊 I was 65.5kg when I fell pregnant - And had no muscle! Gym 5-6 times a week, still muscle group specific.
Zeke's doing amazing! The last few nights he has only woken 1/2 times a night for milk BUT his day naps are getting weird. It's like he's constantly fighting them. I also feel like he just had a growth spurt because he looks huge.. 2 teeth now! 3-5 milk feeds a day, and he has 3 solid meals a day ☺️ Emerald is starting to get excited now because Zeke is moving around; she likes to throw toys around for him to "chase" hahaha. His army crawl is getting really fast & he's pulling himself up onto his knees. Yesterday he almost pulled himself up.. Is that normal for his age? Well what's normal honestly all babies are different!
I wanted to stop documenting when Zeke was 6 months but I think the first year is really important to remember because they grow so much.. he's so much bigger now than my first postpartum post 😭 I don't want to forget how I'm feeling either! I hope you all have a great day 💕
