I Lost My Pregnancy Weight!

I Lost My Pregnancy Weight!

Early on after the birth, I often heard the phrase “9 months up, 9 months down” to encourage mothers to not expect to lose the weight they had gained as the tabloids suggest one might.  Eight months and 9 days later, I can say that I agree with that phrase. I am now going to … Continue reading

Thoughts from Week 2
