And hello Website! Haven’t seen you in a long time!
It’s somehow funny, last year, December 19th, we were all sick with the stomach flu. This year, December 16th Q started vomiting, luckily only four times that evening until he finally fell asleep.
The boyfriend didn’t feel too good that night and I didn’t feel too good Saturday, but I went out and did my things and felt better after breakfast and two big cups of coffee.
Sunday however I got a headache, took some medicine and in the evening I didn’t feel good at all and thought ok, that’s it, hello stomach flu. The boyfriend didn’t get it, he only felt bad that one night.
But, instead of getting the stomach flu, I got a laryngitis! It somehow felt different from the regular I have a cold sore throat so I was a bit worried and went to the doctor on Tuesday. The disadvantage of a laryngitis, other than that it sucks, is that it can take up to ten days and seeing it’s a virus you can’t do anything against it, other than to drink lots of tea!
Oh, today is day three, on day six we have a big family dinner, on day seven as well, on day eight we drive to the boyfriend’s family and on day nine we have a big family dinner there.
Oh, I wish the virus wouldn’t always wait so long until it says “Hello, here I am” 🙁

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
