oh baby

Bailey definitely did a number on my body. Three weeks post-baby, despite being 1 lb below what I weighed before I got pregnant, I still look like I could be 3 months.

Not to mention the horrific stretchmarks leaving me with no choice but to forever shop in the tankini section for bathing suits...

Random thought, is the word tankini in the dictionary yet? Yep.

Posting this will make me accountable for losing the flab and getting in shape. Obviously, this will have to wait until I completely heal. I'm already getting tons of flak from friends and family for overdoing it with simple chores. It's so frustrating that I can't just get into a normal daily routine without taking everything into consideration if it's going to affect my healing process. 

Oh, I would also like to mention that while I never did trek out to Nordstrom to enjoy my Spanx experience, I did try on some knock offs at our Kohls. They weren't worth it. I didn't notice any substantial difference other than smoothing of the skin. You don't fool me, knock offs. Maybe the real Spanx actually work? We'll see, one day when I'm eventually healed enough to take the double stroller out with the kiddos.


  1. Just try to remember that your body just gave birth to a beautiful baby, and your body didn't transform overnight, so just give it some time and your skin will go back to being firm and beautiful!

  2. I agree with Amy!

    Also, I didn't know you have a tattoo!!

  3. I do! I have three, actually :0)
