One Year LaterPosted: August 18, 2011
I haven’t looked at this blog in about a year. Shortly after beginning the ‘cleanse’ – I became pregnant and gave birth to a baby girl in May. Crazy. I am enjoying getting to know my little bundle of pinkness. She is my sweet baby girl.
My boys are getting big. They fight with each other most of the time. It has been challenging for the last six months or so. I think the little one is just adjusting to no longer being the baby of the family. I’m hoping things get better between them when school starts in a couple of weeks. JK for the little guy and grade six for the big guy.
I have lost most of my baby weight. But, my belly still looks pregnant-ish even though I’ve lost the pounds per the scale. I don’t know what to do. Could my uterus still be swollen slightly 14 weeks later?
I am looking at life a bit differently (most of the time) as I almost bled to death eleven days after having my daughter. I had retained placenta. It was such a whirlwind of a month. I’m feeling pretty normal now though. I sympathize / empathize with people who are hospitalized now for sure. How brutal. I just wanted to yank out all of the tubes etc and run home. I was starved (on purpose) in preparation for surgery and couldn’t sleep well (as I was attempting to nurse my newborn). It wasn’t the easiest time but we survived.
Here I am. Back in action.
