Yes I gained some weight, but I also gained something much more important.

It’s something that most people don’t talk about unless you ‘snap back’. Honestly, who even really ‘snaps back’ ? Your body spent 9 months growing a little human. If it takes a little longer to lose that weight who really cares?
This is something I try to tell myself as I stare at my smaller clothes stashed away in my wardrobe. I gained A LOT of weight during my pregnancy. Partly down to snacking (who blames me… insert the ‘eating for two’ excuse here.) However it was also partly due to the fact my baby girl got comfy by pushing her little bony feet on my hips for the last two months. I was also extremely lucky to be contracting for a long, long time before she was evicted so I spent the last 2 months stuck to the sofa.
I have some tough days. Days when I stare at the mirror promising myself that I’ll diet, and on the other hand – days when I really don’t care.
Yes, I gained some weight, but I also gained something much more important. I have my little girl and she loves her Mama the way she is. Born at 9lb 4oz, she’s definitely cuddly and I wouldn’t have her any other way. If you asked her? She probably would say the same about her mama.
