This morning I tried on every pair of pre-pregnancy jeans I own. You know, just to torture myself.
Able to pull them up? Check.
Able to zip them closed? Check.
Able to breathe? Nope.
Even though I have lost 30 of the 36 pregnancy lbs I gained, my body seems to have rearranged itself so that all my extra fat is right around my middle. Let's just say there was a major muffin top showing above my jeans. But I'm not worried. I hope I will look slightly more normal by my 6-week postpartum checkup.
I also put on a little bit of makeup this morning. So far it is helping me to feel slightly more human.
