Its a week after my baby girl abruptly entered this world and I am finally starting to feel more human again. At the end of last week I felt dreadful. My body felt as though it had been hit by a train……everything hurt. I had pretty bad after pains which were made even worse by my daughters poking and kicking me in the stomach as they climbed on me for numerous cuddles.
I forgot how it feels after giving birth – with an empty bump, huge, solid and very sore boobs (bigger than your newborns head), lumps the size of golf balls under your arm pits etc, not to mention down below – you just don’t feel your best. On top of all that I seem to have had injection points in my hands, spine, leg and arm which all ached too.
This week I am out of my maternity clothes and feel great about it. I’m going to give myself a few weeks to recover first and am then going to get back into some exercise and shape up. I don’t feel as though I have put a huge amount on but then I haven’t dared step on the scales yet either.
Husband went back to work today and I had my first day with the three of them by myself. To be honest it was a nightmare….Daisy spent the whole day screaming. Poor little thing though finally threw up a ball of congealed stuff and had a dirty nappy about 5pm and since then has been as happy as anything. I hope that’s the last of the mucus and stuff that’s been causing her problems for the past week.
I am really loving having three little girls though so guess its all worth it.
