Post Baby Update - Week 1 (Helen)

Giving Birth is a great weight loss aid!

A week after giving birth:
I weigh 79.2 kg (75.5kg before being pregnant, 89 kg at end), losing 9.8kg
I have a waist measurement of 98cm (75cm before, 117cm at end), losing 19 cm

Plus, I realised yesterday all my pregnancy symptoms had disappeared!
No more heartburn, backache or nasty infection. Hurrah!

Bless - I love that the photos show such a change! You look very serious in the left one, though! You look good, a week after Markus arrived, not sleep-deprived at all!

Less serious, more confused about how to angle camera phone into mirror! I am a bit tired, but have been sleeping so badly anyway, that it doesn't seem much different :-)

Lovely to see all your progress, you keep looking after yourself too as well as that babby of yours.

I will do, Alan is feeding me well, but in a few weeks time I will be out walking again. too wobbly at the mo to do much more than a slow stroll round the block! Thanks for your card, we have just opened all the cards and presents :-)

Phew! matthew kept picking up Christening cards and there were a lot of quite scary birth ones too! Funny how you don't think about that kind of stuff in a different language/culture - it was fascinating!
