2 weeks

Today Ava had a 2 week weight check and I am so proud to say that in the last 6 days she has put on another 6 ounces (weighing in at 7 pounds 11 ounces). The Dr was happy with that and so am I. Nursing a baby is a ton of work, but it is all worth it when you see your baby gaining weight and healthy. She is still an amazing baby eating a lot during the day and giving me 4 to 5 hour stretches at night. We have yet to hear her really cry.

I also had my two week check up today. I am so proud that in 15 days I have lost 17 of the 40 pounds I gained!! My Dr released me to do leisurely walking and I go back in three weeks for a full release. I feel great and I have to stop often and remind myself (and my dear husband) that I had a baby 2 weeks ago.

What a great picture of the two of them. I am glad to hear that Ava is gaining weight on her milk. What an outstanding job you have done already with your weight loss.
