So I posted this in introductions, but I figure I should post it here as well seeing as this is a section for parents! Anyhow...
On 3/23/2013, I gave birth to big 8lb/21.5" baby girl. During my pregnancy I gained almost 70 lbs, jumping from 135 (I'm 5'7") to 204 lbs. Two days after her birth, I am now a solid 194 lbs. My uterus is still HUGE and expanded (It's not supposed to go back to normal size until 4-6 weeks?) So I can't give accurate measurements for now.
I am a recovered 'mia, but unfortunately after pregnancy I found myself in a relapse. Especially due to the huge depression of not being able to keep my baby.
I did let a family friend & her husband raise her in an open adoption setting, because I'm poorer than poor (still finishing college w/ a dead end job and unable to receive help from family or state) and can't give that girl everything in the world that she deserves right now.
Oh, and I'm 20 years old.
I also had a 2nd degree perennial tear during delivery, so exercise is a big no-no until 6 weeks later. It's driving me crazy. I can barely walk with these stitches!!!
So anyhow, nice to meet everyone! Esp. looking forward to speaking with other moms.
