After several months of feeling like a whale I finally have the relief of having given birth to my baby. In all I put on a total of just over 2 stone during my pregnancy and have never felt so heavy before. When my waters broke early I noted that I had already lost a total of 5 pounds and after the birth, with Penny weighing in at 6.4lbs I had lost a stone. That still leaves an extra stone of weight still to shift, something I will start working on in the new year. I am sure once I resume an exercise programme it will soon drop off, but for now I intend to enjoy Christmas and my new baby before concentrating on shifting those extra pounds.
