5 Weeks 

Hey everyone! I hope your week is going well. Monday I had my checkup with my ob to see how I am healing and I am able to work out again! I’m very excited to start getting back to my prebaby body. 

So if you guessed it, we are 5 weeks in with our little Mr. He has been such a wonderful addition to our family. Mico is so loved by his big sissy (and by mommy and daddy of course). Riley is obsessed with him, and she insists that I call her big sissy. I called her my big girl one day and she yelled at me! What a little stinker. 

I love watching her interact with him. She wants to be near him all the time, giving him hugs and kisses. Of course we do have to stop her after a couple because she would probably smother him with love. 

Since I breastfeed I have dropped a lot of my weight. I haven’t lost all of it, which I didn’t expect to since I just had him. Before I found out I was pregnant I weighed 138 pounds. I ended up weighing 172 pounds before I delivered him. I gained a ton, probably because I ate a lot of cookies, chocolate and McDonald’s. At my checkup I weighed 148 pounds. 

This was me at 40 weeks

This was taken on Monday, the day before I hit 5 weeks postpartum

I recently purchased a Maidenform shapewear corset just to start getting back on track. It was a little under $16 from Walmart. When I first put it on I had to lay down because it was so snug. I only wore it for about an hour. I’m up to 5 hours of being able to wear it now. I noticed a slight difference after wearing it, so I’ll keep you posted. It isn’t the most comfortable thing to wear but if it helps then I’ll wear it. 

After the first couple weeks I shed lots of tears from pain of nursing and all the hormonal changes. I haven’t had any issues this past week or so, which is great! 

Mico is now over 10 pounds, I’m pretty sure he is close to if not already 11 pounds. This boy loves to eat! 

I was able to get him comfy in my Moby Wrap and he loved it. He whined at first because he was extremely grumpy but once he was in he fell fast asleep. This wrap is $44.95 and comes in a couple of colors. I’m not the best at wrapping it yet, so no judgement. Riley never liked being wrapped up so I didn’t get to use it. 

I can’t believe my handsome little man is already 5 weeks old. My heart explodes with happiness every time I hold him or see how much his big sissy adores him. I’m hoping they grow up to be best friends. I can’t wait to watch them grow up. 
Thank you all for stopping by! I really appreciate you all for coming along on this crazy journey with us.
