Life after pregnancy

Things that have changed since being pregnant and having a baby.

1. I can barely drink a beer or glass of wine. It is not that I don't want to drink it, it just takes a really long time to do so. I guess I really got out of the habit of drinking while pregnant.

2. Sex. Not necessarily bad, just different.

3. My clothes don't fit. This isn't because I haven't lost the baby weight, it is because I have lost more than just the baby weight. Now most of my clothes are loose, a little too loose in my opinion.

4. My boobs. I swear they are actually smaller. I think it has to do with the weight loss as well. And when they are not full of milk, they seem smaller.

5. My hair. It is still in a weird phase where I am not losing my hair anymore but it is taking its sweet time growing back. It is also a darker color.

6. Social life. Now revolves around nap time and bed time.

7. Taste buds. I use to not like a few things prior to getting pregnant, dark beers, mushrooms, spicy foods, now I love them.

8. I love all babies. On the news or watching a TV show, anything bad happening to a baby makes me want to cry. All I can think about is, what if that was Leland?

I think it is safe to say, all these changes are worth it.

What about you? Any changes?


  1. I'm definitely with you on that first one. I really haven't had much to drink since Andrew was born. Part of it might be knowing that I have a little person to take care of the next day so a hangover is so not worth it!

    My hair seems to have a slightly different texture and is straighter than it used to be.

  2. I can so relate to the alcohol front. I barely can have one glass and I get that dizzy feeling. I wish I was with you on the clothing situation. My hair is not the same either. Motherhood!
