Weekly Review

How far along? Would be 40 weeks... instead, one week postpartum!

Total weight gain/loss: Down 18 already, to 126!! 8 lbs above my pre-pregnancy weight! Believe me, I let out a huge wow when I saw that.

Maternity clothes? Some pants still... but mostly just wearing loungy clothes and nursing tanks.

Stretch marks? Little devil horns coming off the top of my belly button!

Sleep: Good, but in spurts! Lol. We have our little alarm clock sleeping with us... that wasn't the plan, but she sleeps so much longer and better when with us, and I'd rather share my bed for a bit then be getting up every 20 minutes! We got one of these to use in bed with (it makes it much more relaxing!) and will use it when we go to transition her to the crib.

Best moment this week: Meeting my daughter! But also watching Trav be so sweet with our girl, having Daisy be a true champ when meeting Gwen, getting her newborn pictures taken... all of those sweet first moments.

Movement: N/A ... lol.

Food cravings: None, just trying to eat well to be healthy for Gwen and myself.

Actual Gender: GIRL! :-) ::sigh of relief::

Labor Signs: Yup, definitely had those! Full labor story coming soon... its hard to sit down and find the time to write it all out.

Belly Button in or out? Going back in where it belongs!

What I miss: Sleeping through the night... (TMI) having not sore lady bits!!

What I am looking forward to: Everything! I can't wait to see her grow, experience her firsts, and really figure out who she looks more like. Also, my brother is coming up this weekend and I can't wait for him to meet his niece!

Weekly Wisdom: Every ache, pain, annoyance during pregnancy... and every excruciating contraction is worth it the very second you see your baby for the first time.

Milestones: I'm a mom now! That is so surreal.


  1. Your daughter is just too precious!! I am so very happy for you and your husband!

  2. LOVE the pictures! She is so beautiful - I can't wait to see who she looks more like as well :) It is very surreal that you're a mommy now! Still very hard to believe - but I'm SO happy for you!! :D


Leave me some love!
