6 Months Postpartum

My last update on me was at 4 months postpartum. Mostly because not a lot has changed. I've felt normal for months now.
If you are interested you can read my 6 months postpartum update with Paige. I always got told that weight loss is harder the second time around but for me that was rubbish. I still had a good half a stone to lose at 6 months postpartum with Paige.

The hair loss has slowed right down and I would say that its back to normal. I have noticed that my nails are quite weak. I am hoping this is a phase as normally my nails are really strong.

I am still 1-2lbs away from my target but lets be honest.. I haven't done a single thing to lose it. I'm actually surprised that I haven't put on weight as I've eaten so much, especially over Christmas. The extra 1-2lbs doesn't bother me. I'm well within a healthy weight for my height. I'd still like to tone up but that isn't at the front of my mind right now. Parker is still quite a bad sleeper so I'm tired most of the time. Totally worth it but also very hard work when you have a baby and a toddler to look after. I'm planning on watching what I eat more. I need less chocolate and tea and more fruit, veg and water! In the next couple of weeks I will start working out on good days. There's no way I'll kill myself and force myself to work out 5-6 times a week, I just don't have the energy.

I still fit into my pre pregnancy clothes and generally feel really good about my body. My stretch marks have faded but are visible and don't bother me at all. My belly button will never be the same again but who cares.
For now I will sleep instead of exercising, eat that chocolate bar if I feel the need and just enjoy my babies.

How did you feel at 6 months postpartum?
