Two Weeks Post Baby...

Yesterday was Patrick's two week birthday and in the past two weeks I've realized something:  

Being sick throughout the pregnancy did have one post-pregnancy benefit (looking on the upside here).  I didn't gain the 42+lbs that I gained with the girls.  And those last weeks where there were days and days at a time on an IV with no eating also seemed to kick in to help out with the less-than-ordinary-for-me weight gain... 

So... while we don't have a scale (the last two have been broken by our scale jumping four year old) I do feel like I've lost a lot of the baby weight.  I'm not sure if I've lost all of it, but I think I'm pretty close.  Since it took 12 months to lose it with each of the girls this is quite a difference.  Here are my two week post baby pictures:  

And in this one Paul has me laughing hysterically after a comment about "preening like a peacock":

Now to spend the day cooking and making foods that are not at all conductive to losing weight. It's a good thing he snapped these yesterday!


  1. You look fabulous! Sometimes I think it's better not having a scale in the house during those early post baby days. I hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving!

  2. No more Patrick bump. Congrats Cammie! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  3. You look incredible! I still haven't lost mine - my youngest is 9...

  4. It only took you 2 weeks to look like that?! Amazing! Though I certainly don't envy the pregnancy hardships you had to endure.


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
