3 Months Postpartum

The months are honestly flying by. I say this all the time but I just can't believe it.

This month I started the 30 day shred. I had tried to do it postpartum with Paige but ended up hurting my wrist so had to stop. I then kind of gave up but not this time. This time I have stuck with it and I am seeing good results. I'm not eating great all the time but I am trying to make small changes and choose healthier options. If I do have something naughty then I will have a smaller portion. I am also using the my fitness pal app to track what I'm eating. I just find that this helps me stay accountable for what I put in my mouth. I will do a full 30 day shred update when I have finished the full 30 days. I have around 10 to go.

So how am I feeling 3 months postpartum?! The short answer is pretty good. I feel like myself. I am a little tired which is expected running after a two year old while doing 2 sometimes 3 night feeds. I fit comfortably into my pre pregnancy jeans now and I am back down to a size 8. I have lost a good few inches this month from the 30 day shred. I now have around 6lbs to lose to get to my pre pregnancy weight.

Day before I gave birth and 3 months postpartum
 


My monthly visitor is a lot more regular now which is nice. I felt like it took ages to regulate after Paige. It mans my body I nice and on track again.

I still have my linea negra but it has faded a little. My hair is starting to fall out a little more but it isn't too bad yet. My stretch marks are starting to fade but to be honest they weren't too red anyway. My belly button is truly messed up from pregnancy but that's ok. I'm trying to drink lots of water to help my skin but it could be a lot worse.

I still want to tone up and lose a little bit more weight but overall I am happy for where I am at the moment. I weigh the same as I do now as I did 6 months post partum with Paige. It seem like I've bounced back quicker with my second baby than I id with my first.

I'm not sure if I will do a 4 month postpartum update but I will defiantly do a 30 day shred update and a 6 month post partum update.

How did you feel at 3 months post partum?

Thanks for reading,

Nicola Xx
