Alicia, Cate, Tanya, and Angela:
Maybe this week will be the week you all get to meet your beautiful babies! For some of you it's a sure thing though!
I wish you all luck and joy. As far as getting back into you clothes....hmmmm, I've been trying some of my stuff, and it is a little discouraging. Your uterus takes 6 weeks to get back to it's original size, so don't push the regular clothes issue. I figure I can get into them in 4 more weeks, The legs in my pants are ok, it's the waist that is an issue right away.
You don't want to get crazy trying to diet while you're establishing your milk supply the first couple of weeks. So have some Krispy Kreme to make it nice and sweet.
Now that I'm starting into week 3, I'm watching it a bit more. I have 14 more lbs to lose, so I've lost 26 lbs of it. It took me a little while to pump out all of the IV fluid, as I had a lot of it pooling in my ankles after I came home....then as my kidney's kicked in, I was losing like 4 lbs a day! yippeee. Now, it has slowed down, but I figure if I can knock off 3-5 lbs a week, I'll be in good shape. I just have to be careful not to jeaopardize my milk supply. I've been looking at all of my cute Spring wardrobe wistfully!
Best of luck to all of you this week!
