eight loss
« on: March 09, 2012, 10:43:34 am »
So yesterday I went to my 2 week post partum appt with my ob and I have lost a total of 23lbs. I only had a 2lb baby so how could I have lost so much?

Amniotic fluid, fluid retention, added body weight from just being pregnant. It's not just the baby that is the weight we add.

I bleed for only 3 days n very little. I know all of that adds up but I was only 28 Weeks so all of that would have been less than if I was term. My Dr said the amount I lost is more than a lot of people do after a term pregnancy. Lol I asked if they took anything else out n she laughed

It's probably all the stress!!! I can't image how you do with 4 kids at home and all the back and forth trips to the hospital! You're strong as hell, with all the running and probably not eating as much as you should you're burning carbs like CRAZY lol

That's probably true I hardly ever eat. Nothing sounds good and I never have time. Dr put me on ambian yesterday so last night I actually slept. Most nights the most sleep I get is 2 hrs. My little miracle is doing better n  error each day. Today she is two Weeks old n 30 Weeks gestational age!!
