1 month after giving birth

How far along: 1 month after Lucy’s birth
How much do I weigh: 52 kg
How much does Lucy weigh: 4600g
Belly size:
Sleep: Lucy wants to be fed every two to three (sometimes longer) hours.
My Symptoms: Lochia is still there, my perineal and vaginal ruptures are healing and sitting feels much better now
Lucy’s Symptoms: Babyacne, sore butt which I have no idea where it’s from as I watch what I eat so much :(, she can’t get to sleep easily which means she’ll cry/scream lots unless I (or someone) lays her on the chest – she likes body contact. If we go for a stroller ride she’ll sleep a bit but if she wakes up, she’s awake and cries/screams. Same with driving a car. I hope she’ll take the binky soon
Maternity clothes: I wear maternity shorts which I bought after Quinn’s birth and also normal shorts which are elastic
Miss anything: I miss buying clothes in my actual size (and not maternity summer clothes)
Looking forward to: Going to the gym again and getting my body in shape
Best happenings this week:

  • Lucy’s cord fell off at 4 weeks and 3 days
  • She took the binky while we shopped at the drugstore
  • First doctor appointment – all good with her and also her hip, which wasn’t “ripe” after birth is good now

Sports: none
