Postpartum has definitely been hard. It’s been 4 1/2 months and I’m below my original weight, but I’m not happy with how I look and still don’t feel like my old self. I haven’t gone to the gym in over a year and when I try to run, I end up looking like Phoebe from Friends (see S06.E07 - “The One Where Phoebe Runs”). My boobs might be bigger, but I’m also leaking milk and it’s constantly stinging. My jeans fit, but are so snug so I’m living in leggings right now. I sometimes wonder was it all worth it? Honestly, yes. ..
When I tell people my labor didn’t go exactly as planned and I was miserable af, I also like to let them know, there’s nothing more special than the life you and your SO created. I look at my little one and she’s always smiling (except when she’s hangry).
