After a rough pg, labor, delivery and afterbirth, I am having mini-milestones that help me feel like I am getting back to "normal" again. I thought it might be fun to share with each other.

2 days pp - I pooped and wore normal underwear. :
3 days pp - milk came in :
5 days pp - bleeding very little
6 days pp - lost 21lbs of pg weight. 4 more to go!(keep in mind I had a 10lb. baby)
7 days pp - wear my wedding and engagement rings again. ds is an efficient eater and nursing sessions are down to 10-15 minutes.
10 days pp - fit into regular pants, but still have a small belly so put on yoga pants for ultimate comfort. The first time in a looooong time that I feel really good. Drove my car again for the 2nd time in the last 8 weeks.

Mindfully parenting DD 8/04 & DS 11/08, Human beings are the only mammals who do not nurse their offspring to full term.

5 hours pp - wearing own undies
3 days pp - milk came in
8 days pp - packed up maternity clothes, but I have to admit I don't have any regular pants yet to try since I packed them up and put them into storage!
10 days pp - and still nursing. This one is HUGE for us. I have a 6 week hell or high water agreement with myself, but I can't believe I'm still lovin' it!
