I Am A Balloon

A few days after I had Braden, I looked at my stomach and was just dismayed. It was still big! Really big! I commented on my sad state and instead of saying that I was 'imagining things' or reminding me that I had just had a baby, he said 'yeah, I noticed that.' When I came home from the hospital, a good friend across the street came over with her nieces. Her little five year old niece looked at my stomach and asked if I was having another baby? Ugh. It's hard to hear, even from a five year old. So I just have to remind myself that I am a balloon. As much as I blew up, it takes time to deflate back down.

I'm sure you're still tiny. But if you get discouraged, just look at that cute little boy.

I found getting in shape after the 4th child THE hardest!!! It seems with each pregnancy, it is harder to get over . . . . . I'm still trying after 15 years to get to my "pre-pregnant" weight. I'm sure you won't be like me and will get there in no time!
