we took charlotte to the doctor today (i’m allowed one or two first-time-mommie-calling-the-doctor-freak-outs). she’s fine, nothing at all wrong. but they weighed her again, she is up to 7lbs 14ounces … so she’s gained a whole 4 ounces back above her birth weight.
and as they weighed her, i stepped up on the big kid scale to see where i was. i hadn’t been weighed since the day before she was born. and guess what! i’ve lost 26 pounds since she was born. i was so excited! its so encouraging to know that i’ve lost over half of what i gained through the whole pregnancy! once i’m back down to the pre-prego size, the real work begins … getting back down to “ideal” (aka freshman year of college) size before we ever even talk about more kids! i may not be busting out “sweatin’ to the oldies” just yet, but maybe i’ll do some research on those baby-mommie excercises since i’m apparently still not supposed to be lifting anything heavier that charlotte! but i’m super encouraged and just wanted to share the good news!
