I can’t believe it’s already been a month! I’m anxious about returning to work and getting everything sorted out with pumping, having someone else feeding and taking care of my kids, and not knowing when or why my baby is crying. It was really hard for me to go back to work after having Luna. I cried the night before and all day at work, but it’s helpful that I can look at her now and see that she’s okay and everything worked out. I just hope the transition for Apollo isn’t difficult and that we’re able to continue breastfeeding. I’m worried about him not taking my milk in a bottle, but I’m trying to stay optimistic and hope for the best. Pumping and working is really hard and tiring, but I did it for almost a year with Luna, so I’m determined to do it full force for Apollo.
I’m feeling great one month postpartum. I still have about 15 pounds to lose, but I’m not even trying to do anything about it until we’ve gotten a routine down with pumping and breastfeeding. I don’t want to mess up my milk supply and jeopardize anything for Apollo. I am really excited to start working out again in the next couple of weeks, though. It really helps me with stress and my overall mood, plus the weather is so nice and I’d love to run outside!
Apollo has his next check up on September 30, so I can update with his stats after that.
