Mama update

Okay, so this is ridiculous...
I gained about 60 lbs while pregnant (according to the doctor's scale).
For the record, Doctors don't like people to gain that much.
This morning I walked down the hall all the way from NICU to the OB.
I love that it is really just down the hall.
I stepped on the scale, they checked my blood pressure... they removed my staples.

The average woman loses (I think) 15-20ish pounds when she has a baby.
I'm not average.
Since last Monday morning when I visited the OB (I hadn't been weighed after that)
I have lost a grand total of 
41 pounds


that leaves me 18 pounds to get back to pre-pregnancy weight.

The real work will start after that!


  1. Whoa!!! All that fluid, baby gone and all that nursing!! :)

    So glad everyone is doing great! Be blessed!

  2. Whoa! That's God's grace right there as far as I'm concerned. :)
