The Real Postpartum: Embracing the Journey at 2 Months Postpartum




Hey everyone! So, it's been eight weeks since I welcomed my bundle of joy into the world. Yep, my little munchkin is hitting the two-month mark tomorrow on the 17th, and let me tell you, it's been one heck of a ride! From the moments of pure bliss to the challenges that knock the wind out of you, I've experienced it all.


Now, let's talk about postpartum bodies. You know, I've scrolled through countless social media posts of moms flaunting their pre-pregnancy bodies like they never even had a baby. And hey, good for them! But here's the thing, not enough people talk about the flip side of the coin—the reality that for some of us, our bodies don't just bounce back.


I'll be honest, my pregnancy journey was no walk in the park. I battled through a lot of pain, and as someone who's always been passionate about fitness, it's been tough coming to terms with my postpartum body. I've danced with body image issues before, and just when I thought I'd made peace with myself, along came this new chapter.


So, here I am, two months postpartum, and my belly still looks like I'm housing a little one in there. It's a struggle, no doubt. I'm dealing with a pretty severe case of diastasis recti, and the SPD pain I thought would disappear after birth? Yeah, it's still hanging around.


Walking feels like a marathon, and even getting off the couch requires an Olympic effort. It's a mental and physical battle every day, especially for someone who's used to being on the move.


But you know what? I'm not alone in this, and neither are you. So, if you're nodding along, feeling the same struggles, just know that you're not the only one. It might feel like we're invisible because no one talks about this side of postpartum, but trust me, we're out here, navigating this journey together.

Despite the challenges, I wouldn't trade it for the world. Every stretch mark, every ache, it's all worth it when I look at my little bundle of joy.


So, to all the warrior moms out there, remember, you're beautiful, inside and out, and you're doing an amazing job. Keep shining, keep pushing forward, and let's embrace this postpartum journey, one day at a time!
