Hey loves, hope you’re having a great weekend! Today I’m kicking off the second round of the Q+A series and we’re chatting all things mamahood! You girls seemed to love the first installment about hair care, so I hope those of you with kiddos will like this one just as much. I got a TON of DMs and I tried to answer most of them below – But before I get into things, just note that I do NOT have it all figured out. Just like all mamas out there, I’m doing my best and what’s best for our fam. But hope you enjoy this real talk post and this answers anything you girls were looking for!
Okay ladies lets talk Postpartum Progress! First let me just say i’m so sorry i’ve lagged on this post (and a million other ones I have planned to do for that matter). I may sound like a broken record but life with two kiddos keeps a mama very busy and to be completely honest i’m definitely feeling the “struggle with the juggle” a lot lately but here we go finally with my Postpartum Journey after two babies!
Back in 2012 (39 Weeks Pregnant with Ava)
About 1.5 Years Postpartum After Ava
It really wasn’t until about 6-7 Months postpartum after my first child that I even started to feel like my body was getting back to its pre baby shape. The above picture is at about one and half years postpartum after my first child (Ava).
(39 Weeks Pregnant with second child, Luca)
(8 Weeks Postpartum after baby #2)
(and last month at 6 Months Postpartum after baby #2)
With both pregnancies I gained just under 30 lbs and while most of it came off after a few months I still hung on to those last 5 lbs until at least 7 months later.
