So, I have to say I was a little nervous about posting these photos at first, but then I had to remind myself to love my body and to remember that I had a baby only 2 and a 1/2 months ago. It's hard sometimes to not get down on yourself about your body, because it goes through so many changes during and after pregnancy. However, just looking at the little miracle I created with my husband is enough to kick myself in the tush and tell myself to relax. It's OK if I don't look exactly the same as I did before. It's part of being a woman. I gained almost 50 lbs with Bridgett, but being 5'10 with a long torso it really didn't look like I had gained so much. I'm lucky to have fast metabolism, so along with breastfeeding the lbs have been shedding off rather quickly. I will say they've shed even quicker with this second pregnancy than they did with my first. I think it's because I'm busy running around after a two year old all the time. She definitely is my daily cardio. ;) I have about 15 lbs left to lose, but I'm in no hurry and I'm actually OK with not getting back to my exact pre-pregnancy weight. I'm just going to continue to eat right, exercise at least 3 times a week and drink lots of water. I will say I had a little help this time around, thanks to Shrinkx Belly and Shrinkx Hips. You might have seen my initial IG post HERE. They are a postpartum hip compression belt and a belly band that wrap around your stomach and your hips after pregnancy. They basically help train your muscles and hip bones to move back into place. I will be honest and say that I didn't wear them everyday (because sometimes they were a little uncomfortable), but I did try to wear them often and I think they definitely helped. I also really loved their Vitamins & Supplements that help with milk flow during breastfeeding. You can check out all the UpSpring products HERE. They have a lot to offer for mom and baby. On another note, I am LOVING this yoga apparel from Cozy Orange. They have great styles to choose from, full of fun colors and prints! They're pieces that I will wear working out, but also for running errands during the week, or play dates at the park. I especially love the Rue Yoga Top, the strappy detailing in the back is super cute. If you love active wear you should definitely check them out!
