Baby Update - One Week Post Partum - Before and After Belly Shots

Hi Bellas,

It's been a whirlwind week spending our first days with Baby Arabella.  Check out my super real baby update...the ups, the downs, and how I'm really feeling as a new mom.  I also show you my stomach one week post partum.  Check it out!

Check out the video!

  • Baby had her first doctor's appointment - she's already gaining weight back.  It's completely normal for babies to drop a few ounces after delivery.  As long as they gain it back within 2 weeks it's ok.
  • Post partum symptoms - bleedings, stomach cramps, sore lady parts
  • My stomach has gone down a lot - I'm also currently wearing a post partum belt around the clock
  • I'm recovering from vaginal delivery with a first degree tear - some of my must haves - dermal, Motrin prescribed by doctor, hospital mesh underwear and pads
  • I'm dealing with major breast engorgment - I'm doing a lot of icing and using my lansinoah gel packs and and Lansinoh Soothies for sore nipples
  • About day 4 or 5 my boobs started to leak milk a lot. thank goodness for Lansinoh Breast pads
  • I live in nursing tanks and bras!
  • I'm super emotional - a combo of hormones, no sleep and dealing with all the new changes
  • Baby girl is pretty fussy - she cries a lot especially at night
I've compiled a list of my post partum must haves on amazon.  All products are purchased by me and seriously life savers.  Check them out here.
