Sorry I’ve been neglecting my blog, as well as all of yours! I’m trying to get back into the swing of things in the blogging world. I miss all of you, and I miss writing.
I had my 6 week post-partum check up this past week. Everything looks good, and I’m cleared for all activity. I still feel tender now and then from tearing/stitches, but that’s normal. I’ve lost 23 lbs!! I can’t believe it! I only have 6 lbs to go to get to my pre-pregnancy weight! I’d like to lose some more and tone up a bit. I just want to be healthy and get back into shape.
I’m back on Metformin for PCOS – not for TTC purposes – for keeping my hormones and cycles regulated. I haven’t had AF yet, but it could come anytime. Prior to getting pregnant, Metformin helped me lose weight. I’m not too concerned with how I look, in fact, I like how I look. I’ve adjusted to the changes my body has gone through. I still have noticeable stretch marks, but honestly, they’re not that bad. They’re my tiger stripes, and I’m proud of what I went through to get them. 🙂
Sooo, hubby and I DTD this past week! I was pretty nervous. It did hurt in the area where I had torn. I also bled afterwards. We went slow and easy, but I guess I need a little more time to heal. We’ll try again soon. Even though I was scared and it hurt, it felt nice to be intimate with my husband again. He said he finds me even more attractive now that I’m the mother of his son. I love him!
Graham turned 7 weeks old yesterday (Saturday)!! I didn’t get a chance to do his 6 week update. I believe he’s been going through a growth spurt. He’s eating a lot more frequently and fussing. Of course, we’re still dealing with his stomach issues. Things have been better for a couple weeks though! Still not great, but better. It’s amazing how much he grows and changes everyday. I swear he’s just recently grown an inch! Some of his newborn clothes are suddenly becoming short in the arms and legs! I don’t think we’re quite ready for 0-3 month clothing. His 2 month check up is next week already!!! I’d be willing to bet he’s 8 1/2 – 9 lbs and maybe 20 inches by now! Little peanut is getting bigger!
I’ve seen Graham smile before, but only with his eyes closed or in his sleep. I always chalked it up to gas. It was still cute to see! BUT yesterday, I got my first REAL smiles!! He smiled AT ME! I was singing “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” and talking to him in a silly voice. I got a TON of smiles. I’ll include photos. He even smiled at me again a few more times yesterday! It was the best, most rewarding feeling! I am so happy, and I love interacting with him!! I love him so much!!
Happy baby!! 😀
