It is hard to believe 9 months of carrying him has come to an end. I am glad to have a little bit of my body back!! It will still take some work to get the rest back, but the fluid retention is gone and the heartburn and the sore hips and the breathlessness. Now I just have to work on the flab!! Breastfeeding is really helping the weight come off, but I am sure you get to a point where it stalls. I will have to work through that and try not to get disappointed. I cant wear my pants so thats annoying.
But he is so worth every bit of the pain and the hard times and I would not trade him for anything. I love watching my other kids talk to him and hold him and love on him. I love seeing my husband as a new Dad again. Having another baby changes your marriage and makes you fall in love more deeply than ever before, or at least thats how it goes for me.
