4 weeks postpartum... My stomach has shrank back quite a lot and it makes it hard to imagine I had a huge preggo belly a month ago! (Swipe to see more photos 😋🏀) im still wearing my maternity jeans because... comfort. 💁 The female body is truly amazing, though I can't say I always feel that way. I haven't talked too much about my labor because it was pretty traumatic... I was having a lot of heart and low blood pressure issues and passed out right after labor, so I had to be monitored every few hours... I couldn't even walk the first couple days without feeling like I was going to pass out. Luckily I'm feeling much better than I was (my heart is back to normal) and my hormones have definitely evened out more and my appetite has come back. The first 2 weeks were intense to say the least... and no one really prepares you for it. It's like PMS x 1000.🤪 Though I wasn't diagnosed, I know I suffered from postpartum depression, and I still feel remnants. I felt so beautiful pregnant, and now sometimes I feel like a deflated balloon. Breastfeeding/pumping was a massive depression and stress inducer for me, and my milk ended up drying out because of it 😟 I felt very inadequate at first, but my babe is healthy and well fed on soy formula and that's all that matters. #fedisbest I know my body will never look the same as it did, but that is okay... my stretch marks will fade and my loose skin will hopefully get tighter. It was all worth it for this beautiful little being that has entered our lives 💗 I'm looking forward to my OB appointment in 2 weeks so they can clear me to workout and take baths again 🙌 #4weekspostpartum#postpartumjourney
🧜This little mermaid is 1 month old today!🧜She enjoys sleeping, lots of milk, snuggles all day, and tummy time! She is already so strong and holds her head up with so much control. However, she is still unsure about bath time 😂 She is just starting to talk and coo more and loves stretching her legs out! I'm glad the mermaid tail I crocheted at least covers her legs 😋 She is such a calm, happy baby, I can't believe I get to be her mama! You have changed our world, Autumn, and we love you so much! #ourautumnrose#1monthold

Life currently: baby snuggles all day long... And that's basically it. 👶💗💁 Also this little girl slept from 11pm to 5:30am last night 😱, let's hope that happens again tonight! 🙌 #mommydaughterselfie#ourautumnrose
8 days postpartum. I honestly completely under estimated labor and postpartum recovery. It felt like my body completely shut down after labor, I've had little to no appetite and Jimmy has been diligently feeding me (the freezer meals were pretty bland btw 😭). All I want to do is sleep, but I need to feed her and pump every 3 hours because my milk supply is slow to come in. And I feel guilty for already supplementing with formula, but #fedisbest. I have the PUPPS rash all over my legs, butt, and stomach and basically it will go away in about two weeks. I gained 43lbs and have lost 26lbs already, but I just feel drained. I had gained so much water weight throughout pregnancy so I'm not surprised with the rapid weight loss. I'm not trying to complain because our little girl is seriously the sweetest angel, I'm just keeping it real. It's crazy how much can change in your body mind and soul in a week. It is so overwhelming in both amazing and scary ways. Luckily I have an amazing husband and father to our baby girl and the best friends and family for love and support. Thank you all so much for your encouragement and love, this mama really needs it right now!
Our little Libra sun and Pisces moon and all our stars. Born Friday, Oct 19th at 8:34pm. Weighing 8lbs 15oz and 19 inches long. Welcome to the world, Autumn Rose. We are so in love with you. #ourautumnrose
