2nd Week Post Partum

8th day post partum: walking a round this morning I could feel my abdominals pulling in!  Supporting me as I walked with just a little conscious effort on my part. I also climbed up on the shelf in the kitchen no problem. So nice to be mobile again!!!!  did one set of rows and my kegels, and breathing, leg floats, hope to do pushups later and some planks. More walking later in the day from Atlantic Avenue to home, definitely feeling like my body is doing too much actually, need to rest more tomorrow.  9:00 pm did a second set of rows, 2 sets of pushups and shoulder flys

9th day post partum: planks with Mateo, just playing, wrestling and flying airplane with Mateo is enough exercise. He really is a workout! We also did a few pirouettes. Mateo has a beautiful pirouette!  Very graceful. Walked 15 minutes briskly followed by another 10 minute walk both while carrying Lupe (in the Moby wrap, baby wearing at it’s best).

10th day post partum: walked from Bergen street subway to LICH (15 minutes) then from LICH to Dumbo (25 minutes) ran a couple errands and carried Lupe at the same time.  Late in day did pushups, rows, shoulder flys (2 sets each), and some planks. Went to local playground with both kids, had to chase Mateo as he ran away to the train store, no fun.

11th day post partum: sick still, sore throat getting progressively worse, had it since before Lupe was born, I need more sleep!  walked locally in neighborhood and wrestled with Mateo some.

12th day post partum:  rested as much as I could with Lupe.

13th day post partum: walked 4 ten minute walks in the neighborhood, wearing Lupe in the Moby wrap. Carrying a very heavy birthday cake for one of the 10 minute walks. Lot’s of house cleaning (still have sore throat and low grade fever, need more sleep)

14th day post partum:  Cleaned up toys, short trip to park and back in the rain. Did two sets of pushups, rows and one set of shoulder flys, leg floats (double leg this time), other abdominal stabilizing, stretches, plank and side plank. Began doing kegels again.
