Thank you. Well, I'm just eager to attempt to run again but my internal organs don't seem to be quite healed.

Some people swear by belly binding to get back to feeling right. I hope you can get back to running soon, E. I'm bet it will really help you feel better, you deserve some stress relief!

OMG EA77, you're wearing actual clothes. Maybe since you're going into spring there explains it, but the temps are in the 100s here and I have a few t-shirts and sports shorts I'm wearing. It looks like I'm always in PJs. But it's so hot and I am so often wearing milk (pre and post digestion) that I've just decided I'll wear real clothes again...some day. You look fantastic!

Mama505, I know you've had your sweet boy now, but I totally love your crazy last belly shot. Spooktacular!

Crafty, the "actual clothes" are just for leaving the house. It's jammies up until 5 minutes before I leave and within 5 minutes of getting home. And that comfy sleep maternity bra? Yeah, I don't bother changing out of that all day. wink1.gif

Thanks! I've been wearing an abdominal binder almost non-stop. I ran Fri and This a.m. but Fri evening had body aches, fever, chills that lasted through Sat afternoon and just realized this morning those are mastitis symptoms (also red marks on my rt breast) and if that's the case it's probably from my running/sports bra. I'm pretty freaked out about it because I feel like I need to run for my sanity.

Do you like the binder?

I'm sorry to hear about your mastitis greensad.gif maybe a different bra would help? I'm also prone to it, and I have found in the past that if I over-do it, I am likely to wind up on my back with a bout of it. How do you feel after your run this morning?

This is my method for hiding my postpartum belly- baby wearing!!



Here's Gus (about 11 lbs now!) and me (about 10-11 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight). Hopefully this dairy-free thing helps the weight come off these next few months!

coffee - looking great! I remember the first time I came to a mommy nursing group without my Moby on and someone asked if I had lost weight. DD was almost a year old but no, I just lost the Moby. I still have *gasp* 38 lbs to lose which is 8 more than I gained total with DD. I'm counting on some of it being water and I know it is judging by how my feet and ankles still feel but still it's a ton and overwhelming.

 

banana - I can't live without the binder. I love it. It really helps my guts feel secure, really especially the first few weeks.  I feel OK today, I'll see how I feel overnight and if I feel OK I'll try running again tomorrow. I just love running so much and it's such a huge part of my life I hate to give it up long-term especially since I had to quit in January when the nausea and vomiting was worsened by it and then so much exhaustion and bed rest from SCH and PTL so I miss it and miss my running group a ton. I never had mastitis with DD so it's all new to me.

Coffee - You look great! I love the mama and baby stripes. smile.gif

Edelweiss - I really hope you're able to get back into running soon. Sounds like it's goof for your body, mind, and soul. smile.gif
