Postpartum Update - 1 Month

As I write this blog I am still in disbelief that I have a 1 month old, I say this all the time "it goes way too fast!"  So here we are, 1 month out.  I already gave you all an update on Teagan and Jude but now it is time for a Mommy update.  

First of all, wow this maternity leave has been WAY different than Jude's.  Like I said above, it is going really fast but it has also been really busy and stressful.  Remember those cuddle naps and lazy days with your baby?  Yeah, that doesn't happen as much the second time around...sad to say.  

We had an emotional start to my maternity leave, we had to say goodbye to Jeremy's Papa who passed away just 3 days before Teagan was born.  It was rough for everyone.  On top of the service we had Jeremy's parents staying with us for a couple of days while they came to Colorado for the service.  I love them, and I am SO thankful for amazing in laws but it was hard to get used to Teagan and extra company.  

And now...something else. 

Yup that's right, surgery.  FOR ME!  Crap!  I am nervous, I have never had a surgery.  About 2 weeks ago I had a horrible pain in  my chest and back and I ended up in the ER.  I later found out that I have a gallbladder full of gallstones.  OUCH!!  So my gallbladder has to be removed.  I have been reassured that this is an "easy" surgery but I am still super nervous.  This is not how I wanted to spend the last week of my maternity leave either!  Not fun.  HOWEVER, this pain is insane so I am so ready for this pest to be out of my body for good.  

On Monday the 26th please send me any thoughts, prayers, and good vibes you can!  ;O)  I will need them. And prayers for us with the recovery with 2 kids...Oy Vey!  

Time for the update that everyone always thinks about after having a baby - WEIGHT!

I am officially down to my pre-pregnancy weight. YAY!!  Now do not get me wrong, I am thrilled with seeing that number on the scale after only 4 weeks BUT I hate my body right now.  I cannot wait to be back on Weight Watchers, hopefully in a month I will be back to tracking and losing!  Time to work on this body...a body that has given birth to 2 amazing kiddos and a body that has been abused by myself with food for years.  Time for me!  

Okay, if you made it through this post you are a rockstar and I appreciate you!!  ;o)

  8. Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 40
    foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share
    it with someone!
