Bostin is perfect,  seriously you wouldn’t even know there is a baby in our home. He sleeps pretty much all night.  I got him on a schedule of eating at 9:30/10pm, wakes at 3-4 am, then again at 7-8am! Not to shabby if you ask me 😉

I’m breastfeeding/pumping every 3-4 hours around the clock. I’m extremely busy with both babies! But I’m loving it!

Working out…. even though I feel fairly good I am letting my body recuperate. My abdominals are extremely sore and tender. Probably due to  diastasis recti (ab separation), it got worse with every pregnancy especially this one. If I try to flex/tighten my abs my upper abs just below my ribs tighten but there is nothing below that.  I was told before this pregnancy I would most likely need surgery to repair them. We shall see at my  6 weeks postpartum check up.

I’m not dieting in anyway shape or form. I am tracking my food intake (macros) and my calories are currently over 2500 with my fats at 60-80g, Carbs 260-300g, Protein 120g. I’ve been upping my carbs the past few days. Remember calorie counting is a good start but it’s being consistent with your Fats, Carbs, and Protein that really make the difference. 

I’ve had several moms ask about supplements.  Right now this is what I’m taking and won’t add anything else as long as I’m breastfeeding. 

~ Prenatal pills
~ Mineral Drops (at the end of my pregnancy my eyelashes were falling out)
~ ProSupps TC-F Isolate and Whey Protein
~ ProSupps Liquid Aminos PSXXIII
~ ProSupps Karbolic
