It’s kind of sad not to be able to accentuate my bump and hold my hand around my belly anymore in these photos. I was really embracing it as part of my body, but now Vivian is here and it’s even better. However, my “bump” after I gave birth still looked like a 6 month baby bump and even Austin asked me “is there a baby inside there?” while Vivian was in plain view… oh kids! My body was super swollen all over after I gave birth but I really really hope my feet go back to normal so I can wear all my size 7.5 shoes that I have… cuz boy do I have a lot of shoes.
I talked about this a bit on the blog when I had last time, but pretty much for the 1st month after you give birth, it’s a Chinese tradition to stay in the house, not shower, not open the fridge/freezer, eat certain foods and get lots of rest. My mom is staying with us and helping to make all the foods and care for Austin and Vivian and we are so grateful for that! Oh but don’t worry, I am still showering and leaving the house occasionally for doctor’s appointments and for fresh air once in awhile.
