Post Pregnancy Update- 8 weeks

Remember my 38 weeks baby bump update? I looked like this:

Well here I am about 8 weeks out and I look like this:

How I am feeling: TIRED!!!! Jaden has a good night where he only wakes up once or twice followed by a night when he doesn't sleep. Literally one night we were up from 1-4am. I'm working on getting him on a schedule but it is hard because I am a fan of letting sleeping babies lie. When else will I shower and attempt to clean up, and SLEEP.

How I am changing: My skin is very squishy. You know that whole mom pouch thing? Well my body feels that way all over. I know that when I get back to the gym I will definitely have to lift more weights. I find that I am still suffering with mommy brain and cant keep two thoughts in my head most of the time. Or I have too many thoughts at one time. Im sure this will all level out soon.

The baby: He is amazing and if you follow me on Instagram you have seen him. He is already very attached to me (which I love) and I highly attribute to the fact that I am breastfeeding.

Weight: I got on the scale (12/12/14) and I saw 219. Whaaatttt!!!!! Yes people 219! Sure that is still high but my pre-pregnancy weight was 223. Which means I have lost all my baby weight and even managed to drop an additional 4 pounds. Breastfeeding definitely has it perks because I really have not been trying to lose weight. I only got on the scale so I would not have some sort of breakdown be in shock when I went for my 6 weeks check up.

As of 1/1/15 the scale gods smiled on me again I weighed in at 216, which is 7 pounds BELOW my pre pregnancy weight. That leaves me with a high weight loss goal but I can handle it I'm sure. That struggled will be plastered all over this blog soon!

No fun facts or other tidbits this moma is going to bed!!!
