10 months after my C-Section

How much do I weigh: 50,5 kg – stays pretty much the same
How much does Quinn weigh: around 8 kg
Belly size: Still eating too many sweets… I can’t stop either. My excuse is all the rough nights of not very much sleep 🙂 10monthsafterc-section Wow, it really seems like my belly doesn’t change at all. I have eight weeks strength-endurance behind me and am building muscle now for the next ten weeks. Let’s see if my belly changes in 8-12 weeks…

Sleep: Not that good. He used to come at 21:30, then 0:00 continuing about every two hours. I skipped one breastfeeding meal and he came every three hours the last week. Since about three nights he switches, once he comes after two hours, I feed him, then he sleeps three hours. Currently he’s in a phase where he’s wide awake in the middle of the night and it takes me 15-30 minutes to get him back to sleep. Today he woke up at 4:30 and we got up at 5:30 *sigh*.
Symptoms: Still have the yeast infection after every period since giving birth due to a lack of vaginal flora and about a week ago I made a 6-day therapy with uvulas.
Maternity clothes: Not anymore.
Miss anything: Still sleep at times
(Best) happenings:

  • Quinn makes peek-a-boo
  • I still breastfeed during the night
  • He eats with us while sitting in his highchair
  • He is sleeping in his own bed in his own room
  • Falling asleep works very well, I sing “you are my sunshine” and “I only want to be with you” while he’s in my arms, put him down after and he either plays a bit with his sheet or binky or is sleeping already
  • He started saying Mamamamama, sometimes only Mama
  • Once, in his lifetime of 10 months on this planet, he fell asleep on his belly
  • We visited a Baby-concert

Sports: I got a new trainings-plan for building muscles and had my second fitness check at the new gym.

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

Quinn 1 week old

Quinn 1 week old

Quinns weight: 3250 g (reached his birth weight of 3220 g already)
My weight: 54,8 kg (-7,4 kg)

Quinn 1 week old

Here’s my baby and my belly after about one week.
Quinn loves:

  • Sleeping
  • Mom’s boobies
  • Dreaming
  • Being quiet
  • Body contact
  • Listening to Granny talking
  • Sleeping in our King size bed

He’s our content little baby-boy who’s making life for his mom and dad quite easy.
The weather here is getting warmer and warmer so we’re going to take him out for his first walk soon.
Having my boyfriend around is great, he can change or hold Quinn while I drink my coffee or write e-mails or take a shower. It’s a shame he has to go back to work in 1,5 weeks. Being a parent is amazing, the feeling of your baby falling asleep on your chest is beyond words.
