Today I went on a flat walk with Lila in the Ergo and it was really nice but I got out of breath quickly.
One day at a time!
I'm looking forward to riding my BIKE! Oh man, I miss it so much. I feel like the seat would still be torture at this point, though. I had to stop during 2nd tri because of SPD pain. Running would be awesome, too, although I've got only a few months before snow season. I have never been hardcore enough to feel like running on our country roads in the snow, much less in 10 degree weather.
I have no idea how much I gained during pregnancy nor how much I weighed beforehand, but I must say that I think I look fabulous for being only 2 weeks pp. I thought I would have a huge belly for a lot longer! I have loose skin but I sort of like it...it is really soft and fun to poke! My husband likes it, too. Maybe we're weird.
I still get pooped and lightheaded when I climb the stairs in our house or go for a slow leisurely walk.. Thats either my low iron from blood loss after delivery or low bp, I have no idea. It's improved tons since the early days but I still need to sit down immediately after I go up the stairs, it's just so tiring! lol
I know what you mean! I'm so grateful that our house is fairly small and has everything but the laundry on one floor. my recovery has been really easy, but in the first few days after my c-section, when I couldn't do the stairs much, I was really happy for it (and for my husband, who's been doing the laundry!).
as for me, I've been doing daily walks with my baby and my little dog, probably .75 miles or so at a leisurely, let's-smell-all-the-stuff pace. today I added a walk home from our farmer's market, which is probably another half mile or so. felt great, especially after a nap later. and through some bizarre turn of events that's beyond my comprehension, I now weigh five lbs less than I did when I got pregnant, and I think I need to buy some smaller pants, as my two pairs of pre-pregnancy jeans are slouchy and saggy all through the butt and legs. I still have the belly pooch going on, but honestly, I had that before! I feel like someone let some air out of me or something - smaller, maybe, but deflated! I think I should start that strength training I've been daydreaming about if my midwives say it's okay at my six week checkup next week. you know, if this baby stays asleep for more than 30 minutes during the day!
I know it! how old is Lila now? I'm hoping Oliver might settle down and do some routine daytime sleeping in the next few weeks (he'll be six weeks on Friday). supposedly he's going through some growth spurts - not hard to believe considering how quickly he's gained weight! hopefully that's the case for you guys too.
I personally can not WAIT to dtd again. My libido was back at 2 weeks pp. But if I suddenly don't feel like it when I stop spotting/my stitches finish falling out/I get the physical go-ahead, I also won't hesitate to tell my husband that I'm just not ready. I think I would also be turned off by the pressure of this being The Big Day just because you're 6 weeks pp.
