I have a 5 week old. I also have a sprained pelvis so I can't exercise (I can barely climb stairs or walk around the block without having to ice and hurting). I'm pretty depressed bc before baby I worked out a ton and was pretty fit. Currently I feel so fat and soft and even my face feels bigger than the day before I gave birth. Could I be fatter since giving birth? What gives? I also have to eat all the time because of breastfeeding. I've been eating really well. No junk food except for maybe ice cream twice in last 5 weeks.

Why is my face fat? Everyone told me breastfeeding helped get weight off but I have yet to see this. Any information or clarification or advice would be very appreciated!!
