It’s been a while…
It all hit us hard here, Baby-Q, his papa and I were home sick.
And let me tell you, having a cold and taking care of an active yet also sick child is mega-exhausting. I still breastfeed during the night (exhausting as well) and am not allowed to take anything! I had such a headache two days and was dreaming of pain medicine.
Q was super whiney and was hanging on his mommy, he’s getting better each day but it was quite exhausting just to watch him not getting into any trouble.
We are all better now, I just had a typical cold for a few days, Baby-Q had a fever, cold, coughing, running nose for about nine days. We had to postpone the familiarization at the child care for one week later so we are starting that tomorrow (and hoping he won’t get the next cold). Papa-Q has been hit the worse, he had a cold for almost three weeks. Poor guy, but he’s better now too.
So, stay healthy all!
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 🙁 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:
- 15-20 x 53kg leg press
- 15-20 x 30kg abductor
- 15-20 x 15kg row
- 15-20 x 15kg chest press
- 15-20 x “back sit-ups”
- 15-20 x 25kg carcass-turning
- 45 minutes jogging on the treadmill or cross trainer
What sucks the most when you have a cold is: you can’t go to the gym!
Argh, I haven’t been in a week (I only have a running nose but still, the beginning of the week I didn’t feel really all that good) and I feel fatter already. October was a bad month, I was gone a lot and “sick” a lot. I hope hope hope that November will be a better month, but I think it will be 🙂
With storm warnings today and tomorrow. It’s freaking cold! Some days it’s really really hard to stay positive – not seing the sun at all makes me (and others) feel bleh 🙁 At least it should be sunny on Tuesday. I should leave work early to enjoy the sunny day!
Knowing you live where the big with mass of clouds is located and you know it’s not moving – at all – CRY!
But, it’s nothing new that the weather is the way it is here 🙂
8° Celsius on Friday?!?! That’s 46,4 Fahrenheit! And this at the end of May 🙁
I do hope that this is our late spring now and that from June on the summer will come.
