So THIS is the Fourth Trimester.🤷🏼♀️
We officially got the nursery set up in the 5th wheel this week. The toy hauler conversion has turned out amazing and we are feeling blessed to have some extra space for this baby of ours. Especially between feedings, which were rough this first week. Waking up every hour. Not ready to leave her alone, staying up just to watch her and make sure she doesnt stop breathing!
So it’s easy to see why I am lucky to have showered. Hair in a messy bun and in nothing but my nursing bra, @mamastrut and @breas_
A few things I’ve found really helpful postpartum have been the Breast Friend pillow which helps support my arms and wrists while baby girl and I get adjusted to breastfeeding. And the MamaStrut postpartum support belt. This contraption has been my abs and core support this week as my body heels. Its helped give me more energy than I had even hoped for at this stage and my belly is already shrinking back to it’s original size and shape. the perineum straps help keep the ice pack close to my body. It’s a lifesaver. And that goes for my coffee as well. Not only is it burning fat but its giving me the energy I need to tackle the laundry today. See my stories for more.
The 4th trimester has officially begun but thanks to these products I feel a little more in control. This week has been the journey of a lifetime already and it’s hard to believe shes already 6 days old!
I am already in love with this thing called motherhood
