I feel much better after the second week, almost myself again. 🙂
Symptoms: soreness down there is completely gone. Back pain is also gone. However, I still feel some soreness on my feet at night, just as what I felt during the last trimester. I suspect it’s more hormone induced rather than tiredness since I don’t walk other than to the bathroom these days. Hopefully it goes away as well soon.
Bleeding: still bleeding a bit, but very very little, one panty per day is enough.
Body: not major changes since I was back to shape already after the first week. Maybe I lost another pound, which makes me 2 lb away from pre-pregnancy weight. I think at least 1 lb goes to my breasts! 😉 It’s often said that while you’re breast feeding you hold an extra 5 lbs, so I think I won’t lose it any time soon. The most important thing now is to eat well and establish a good milk supply, which I think I do fortunately. 🙂
In term of body shape, especially abs muscles, I do want to get it back. So I plan to get back to exercising after the 6 weeks doc check up.
From the pic, my belly shrunk a bit more, but still not completely
According to books, the uterus goes back to pre-pregnancy size after 6 weeks, so I’ll see how that goes. 🙂
Since I’m feeling normal already, it’s hard to not be active yet, not even walking. I can’t wait to get out of the house (in a week) and start working out again (in 3 weeks), it always bring peace to my mind. 🙂
