Lucy 5 months old

Diaper size: 2 & 3
Sleep: Soso. Some nights very good, some other nights I feel like I only slept 2 minutes. Doesn’t help that the toddler sleeps in our bed pretty much every night and kicks me. Lucy kicks when she’s awake and I can’t sleep when she does that. Last night she kicked for pretty much one hour.
My Symptoms: I got my period meh. I lose a buuuunch of hair, it’s terrible.
Lucy’s Symptoms / what’s new: She’s cross eyed, she rolls from her back to belly and back.
Maternity clothes: Still the shorts. I fit into my normal jeans but they’re just quite tight
Miss anything: sleep 😀
Best happenings that last month:

  • Q had his first Kindergarten day. All went well, he really wants to go.
  • Went for a 6 day vacation in South Tyrol. Too short. We stayed at a little farm and Q loved the cows.
  • Went to Dino World
  • Had a big family gathering at the beergarden
  • Q’s and L’s cousins, uncle and Oma came to visit one night.
  • Went to an osteopath with L seeing she’s always quite stiff when I pick her up. Three appointments. I feel it got better

Sports: I try to go to the gym every other day

Diaper size: 2
Sleep: I put her to bed between 18:00 and 19:00. She usually naps twice a day. The nights, well, she was very hungry the last weeks but I’ve adjusted to it. I really don’t know how often I breastfeed a night, maybe every two hours? No idea. She usually is wide awake around 5:30 and she and I’ll go into Quinn’s bed so that Quinn and daddy can sleep.
My Symptoms: I got my period (oh joy) after four months and the tampon hurts a bit.
Maternity clothes: Still my shorts.
Miss anything: I eat a load of sweets every day and it’s warm sunny weather, I can’t think of anything I miss. Oh yeah, a flat belly?

  • She doesn’t cry so much anymore. Actually she cries quite seldom
  • She grabs her feet
  • She talks a lot
  • She laughs out loud

3 months after giving birth

How much do I weigh: 51,6 kg – 52 kg
My belly circumference: 88 cm
How much does Lucy weigh: 6030 g
How tall is Lucy: 63 cm
Diaper size: 2
3 months old
Sleep: Lucy doesn’t sleep so much during the day now anymore. She’ll sleep half an hour, then wake up but mostly she’s in a good mood. At night, puh, the nights are a bit tough right now. She’ll wake up every two hours, sometimes she’s awake for 30-60 minutes and will goo and gaa around. Then she and I move into her brother’s room so that Q and the bubby can sleep (Q mostly comes into our bed sometime in the middle of the night) and most of the times she falls back asleep at 5, 6 or 7 am.
My Symptoms: I have a bit of back ache and I try to breastfeed Lucy while lying down. Since then my back is feeling better. Other than that I am healed now 🙂
Lucy’s Symptoms: Her eyes which we have to get checked by a specialist. She is still cross eyed. She has a red butt every now and again but nothing serious. Other than that she is developing fine.
Maternity clothes: The shorts but it’s so hot here right now that I tend to wear dresses. I wear breastfeeding tops and normal t-shirts at night.
Miss anything: In this hot weather I miss going to the lake/pool
Best happenings that last month:

  • Lucy got her U4 and all is fine except her eyes
  • The bubby has vacation now for two months
  • Q and I both got sick last week but are feeling better again now. I had a sore throat for about 5 days

Sports: I’m going to the gym again 2-3 times a week
