I have very low iron so I have to watch myself, but still I am caring for my house and 5 kids.
: That is a lot in itself. What are you doing to help get rid of those tummies?
Well, I may have only 8lb to lose to get to my pre-pg weight but that's not my ideal weight, I could stand to lose another 10lb or so beyond that.
And even 5lb goes a looooong way on my petite frame.
I easily lost weight with dd but lost and then regained weight while bf'ing ds so I just don't know what my body will do this time.
I imagine my weight will continue to fluctuate until Audrey weans, I've been pregnant and/or breastfeeding for 6 years straight. I really don't know what my body will do when I'm done!
