I guess people think it'd be heavy for you to carry her around? I dunno. Maybe you should put her in a stroller just to make it easy on yourself. I'm only ten days PP so everyone is on my case about not carrying anything heavy. Man it's been so hard these past few days. I couldn't get in touch with the doctor about her reflux and she keeps spitting up so much that she gets hungry and fussy. Breast feeding is still hard, my milk is kinda coming in but not by much. She literally feeds for half an hour on one breast and still gets hungry. I also can't get the right flange fit for the breast pump because I always feel like I'm rubbed raw at the end. Husband is taking my mom and aunt to Vegas this weekend so they can watch a vietnamese variety show. They want me to stay at home and although I said I was okay with it I'm feeling horribly depressed when I think about it.

We are doing great! Are all of the June babies here now? How is everyone doing?

Well I'm not breastfeeding but I'm pumping.. should have the same affect, right? I mean I don't look much bigger than I was, I'm pretty sure it's all in my ass and thighs, I'm just really bad about motivating myself to exercise so I think this extra 22 pounds is going to be stuck with me forever. :lol:

Aaron is over 1 month old and my big guy will be wearing 3-6 months clothes by the end of this week. 0-3 are too tight around his big guns (arms) and too short to snap at the crotch. He's growing like a weed! I gained 44 lbs w him, was 120 pre preggo and am now down to 129 lbs. the weight loss is mostly due to the bf'ing. He's exclusively feeding :) working on 5 wks yay! My next pp appt isn't until mid July but I'm hopeful I won't need physical therapy for my pelvic floor muscles. I'm slowly getting better but sneezing? Yeah I can't control anything during a sneeze. Running water is just as bad. But at least I'm not as bad as I was. I'm still sore and retear sometimes

I feel ya, Layla has bumped up to 0-3M clothing and size one diapers. I kept trying to squeeze the newborn onesies on her and I'd attempt to attach the little sticky part of the diaper to no avail lol I just couldn't believe she had grown so much already. Have you been doing kegel exercises? The first two or three weeks I was constantly peeing myself, sometimes it would just randomly happen, but I started doing those and haven't peed myself since. :lol:



I'm jealous of you ladies with only ten or less pounds to lose! It's weird because when I look in the mirror, I don't see THAT big of a difference in the way I look, but when I take a picture of myself I'm just like :shock::shock::shock:.



How is everyone's 4th of July? I just got home from my aunt's pool party/barbecue. I wish I could have gone swimming but unfortunately I'm still bleeding (it hasn't even been six weeks yet) and I don't even own a swimsuit at the moment lol. It was so hot and muggy out today though, I was tempted to just jump in. My aunt hadn't met Layla yet and she started bawling when she saw her, she just kept going on about how beautiful she is and how happy she was for us, it was sweet and really unexpected. I ate so much food.. a hot dog and bacon wrapped scallops. :) So good! :) I wish fireworks weren't so damn loud, I'd love to go see them tonight but Layla wouldn't be able to handle it. We have a beach right up the road from our house and they don't do fireworks there, but you can see fireworks going off at a nearby military base so I'm hoping maybe we can see them from our front porch. :) Oh, and I GO BACK TO WORK ON MONDAY!!! :( I'm not ready for it. I'm gonna miss my baby!

Cute bout ur aunt meeting Layla :).
Yeah I do a 100 Kegels a day but my tear was deep to the muscle so it helps but doesn't/won't. It's "better" but not great. I'm kinda glad I'm still bleeding. the pads help w the incontinence when I'm not fast enough to get to the bathroom. It's super upsetting bc I haven't really left my house much bc of it.

It's good to know what everyone's pp stories are because I've been feeling so miserable. The hubs and I got into a fight yesterday about how him and my mom and aunt and cousin are all going to Vegas this weekend and leaving me behind. I told him it was okay for everyone else to be selfish but not me. Man I cried so much, I hate having no control over these emotions. I'm just so tired of my family and his telling me how to parent and everyone just makes decisions for me on whether I can go out or do this and do that. Can't they just ask me what I want to do? Argh, sorry for the rant.



I'm only two weeks PP and have only lost half of the weight I gained during pregnancy. I just want to get through recovery right now and do some working out later when I'm ready.

I feel you on the emotions, I was a wreck at first. I hardly ever cry and at one point I stormed out of the room and bawled over something dumb (can't remember what it was.. that's how dumb it was, I guess lol) but it gets better. :) As for your family, they need to start seeing you for the adult that you are and stop treating you like a child. :? I'm sorry you're dealing with that right now. And I've only lost about half the weight I gained as well (gained 53 pounds, lost 31 pounds), but I was talking to my brother about working out with him because I've always been super insecure exercising in front of people but I don't think I'd have that problem with my brother and he told me apparently he has the same problem, so I'm hoping that really happens and I can lose some weight.
