I've finally done it, I am back to my pre-baby weight! I gained a total of about 40 pounds during my pregnancy, and anywhere from 5-10 pounds from fertility drugs before I got pregnant... thank you clomid.
After I had Jackson, the first 20 pounds pretty much fell off. The next 10 pounds took a few weeks, and I lost another 5 when I came back to work. The last 5 were the hardest to shed, especially since I cannot diet or exercise (to lose weight) while I am still breast feeding. I'm good for about two days and then my supply plummets!
So here I am back to my pre-baby weight, but my body is different. My tummy is flat and I didn't get any stretch marks. But, my hips are much wider, so my old pants don't fit without a major muffin top! Before I got pregnant I was a 34B (okay probably closer to an 34A). Now I'm a 36D, not sure what they will shrivel back to after I stop nursing... but I'm enjoying them while I have them:) Before I was a size 2/4, now I'm comfortably a 6 (again to avoid the muffin top).
I wouldn't trade my muffin top in for the world, Jackson is worth every pound and I couldn't be happier with my mommy body! The real test will be keeping these 5 pounds off over the holidays:)
