This white blouse was my first purchase after giving birth. I thought I would keep wearing my pregnancy clothes for some months after Chloe-Sofia was born. But that worked only for two weeks. Afterwards, the pregnancy clothes were big and unflattering. I chose this flowy. white blouse because it hides the postpartum belly. They say that you have to give yourself some time and can’t expect miracles overnight. I know that but it is still hard to look at my body and see how it has changed. I can’t wait till my doctor gives me green light to exercise.
On the other hand, I must admit that I can fit in most of my jeans and pants that I used to wear before I got pregnant. That is what running around a newborn that has colics and cries a lot does to you- you can hardly find time to eat. It has also its negative side- I would like to breastfeed but I did not have enough milk since the beginning and with the stress, I lost even the little that I had. It is been 7 weeks and Chloe-Sofia is getting bigger, calmer and started to sleep longer at night. Now we keep our fingers crossed that it stays that way.
