9 months after my C-Section

They say a pregnancy goes 9 months and it takes 9 months for the body to get back to normal. My belly is still there and I’m pretty sure it will take a couple of months at least to have a flatter belly.
I started working out again at 8 months after my pregnancy so I’ll keep posting about my belly and see how it turns out.

How far along: 9 monts after Quinn’s birth
How much do I weigh: 50,5 kg (+1,7 kg from my before pregnancy weight – my goal is to reach 50 kg)
How much does Quinn weigh: around 7,5 kg
Belly size: It looks pretty much the same like in the 4 months after my c-section post, maybe even a bit bigger. I haven’t been eating too well and I eat way too much sweets 🙁 9monthsafterc-section The middle photo shows very nicely that my belly muscles are still not completely together and how my belly is curved to the outside. I’d say I look about 16 weeks pregnant.

Sleep: Since about September, so when Quinn was around 5 months old, my (and his) sleep has gotten worse. He still sleeps in our bedroom and comes every 1 to 2 hours.
Symptoms: Sorry, but I want to post this for my records: a yeast infection after every period since giving birth due to a lack of vaginal flora. I told my gyn about that in December and now I have to take uvulas after every period to build up my flora and if that doesn’t help I have to take three uvulas against the yeast infection. Let’s see how long that lasts… You can still see my Linea nigra, too.
Maternity clothes: I sometimes still wear my smallest maternity jeans but mostly I wear my normal pants and tops.
Miss anything: Sleep at times
(Best) happenings: Wow, a lot has happened the last few months (my last post was 4 months after my c-section, I totally forgot all the others…

  • Quinn has six teeth, two below and four on the top
  • He gets mush at noon, in the afternoon and in the evening
  • I still breastfeed during the night and in the mornings
  • I have the feeling I’ll breastfeed forever, it seems Quinn doesn’t get enough!
  • Quinn’s room is pretty much done decorated
  • He broke the changing table while stomping with his legs 🙂
  • Quinn was sick once with fever and a cold, it took about three days for him to feel good again
  • We all had a stomach flu right before Christmas
  • Quinn started rolling around from belly to back and from back to belly at 7 months
  • He loves to take his binky and his on objects to make noise

Sports: I started lifting weights and doing strength cardio the beginning of December 2015.
My plan for the first eight weeks:

  1. 15-20 x 53kg leg press
  2. 15-20 x 30kg abductor
  3. 15-20 x 15kg row
  4. 15-20 x 15kg chest press
  5. 15-20 x “back sit-ups”
  6. 15-20 x 25kg carcass-turning
  7. 45 minutes jogging on the treadmill or cross trainer
