You Better Shape Up


Dear Friends,

I am wishing that I still felt like the woman in these photo's (which were taken 9 months ago). 
Instead, I am feeling like there is no way anyone is getting near me with a camera. 
I am so worried that I will never look or feel like myself again. 
I am having a hard time with just about everything.
 

One thing that I am having a hard time with is listening to myself complain. 
I am also so so so embarrassed about my hormonal outbursts and dramatic fits. 
So, I have been doing you all a great favor by staying away from my blog for a bit. 
I have however been loving this song by The Lennings. 

Tomorrow, I hope to be ready to share happier updates. 

I must add that I want to publicly apologize to my Daniel for everything I have said lately. 
I am sorry and I love you. 

love love,
Fritzi Marie

Darling, you are amazing. God will bless your humility. Hormones make you do crazy stuff. Next ride is breastfeeding - seretonin is a beautiful thing! Be kind to yourself. Love that song. Trish xx

We are all our worst selves at some point. Love yourself with all your flaws :)

Also, I wouldn't hate reading complaint-ridden blog posts.

Ohhhh honey. In my 3rd trimester I woke Dan up because I was hungry. But I didn't know what for. So we drove around and around and nothing looked good - finally we stop at a Mexican place and I agreed to eat there until I saw the kitchen!!! I started sobbing for NO REASON and we went home empty handed and I had a bowl of cheerios at the counter. The crazy moments will turn into funny memories later on, I PROMISE! You are NOT alone, those crazy hormones get the best of us! Love you! I won't even go into the Cinco de Mayo Maternity clothing massacre...

Oh my goodness, that song was on this week's episode of Parenthood and I *loved* it.

Ohhh those hormones will make you feel like you've gone insane! You have NOT, this is 100% normal. I was psycho through my pregnancy, lol!
Also, you WILL get your body back to normal. I was so bloated the last month I couldn't even wear shoes, and my feet were shiny, like they were stretched so tight the skin might pop open. It was gross! They're back to normal though, although it took me about 2 weeks after the birth for the swelling to go down completely. I also gained almost ONE THIRD of my pre-pregnancy body weight. I felt like I was the size of a house, and then after the birth all that skin felt like a "flesh apron"! But within about 3 or 4 days, it was looking more normal. Now I'm 8 weeks past the birth, and my body is back to normal. Breastfeeding helped a lot with losing the weight, and getting me back to my pre-pregnancy size and non-maternity clothes.
DO take pictures though, even if you don't share them. I know you look beautiful, and even if you don't think you do right now, you will later! I am so glad I took pictures of my body when I was pregnant, because now it's a nice reminder of how amazing the human body is.
You are going to be an AMAZING mother, just hang in there. Baby Coco will be worth all of it!
Love & Hugs,
