Beautiful story! It sounds like even with nursing challenges you are enjoying your time with your sweet baby! They change so fast!
I started this pregnancy about 20 overweight (after working really hard to lose 20 lbs), gained 40 over the pregnancy, lost 20 in 3 weeks and at 6 weeks post partum I have only lost 22 lbs. so have 18 to go before I am back at being 'only' 20 lbs overweight. It is driving me crazy, but I am trying not to flip out that I am back where I started when I worked so hard to lose that first 20 lbs. Ugh.

I love seeing the baby pictures!!!!     Here are my 3 boys. Baby is 2 weeks old!
Amazing story. Great job too! Congratulations!!!
Great news! You are right about it being temporary. It sounds like you are doing a great job! Hang in there
Great story! Good job too. I think it can be helpful to have someone to yell at in labor that you kbow you probably won't see again. Enjoy your new baby!
