Here's my mini 'body' update:
I tried running today (after Logan at the park) and boy did I get a side-ache. Running is not my thing. And I don't remember bleeding this long with Logan. I have just switched to pantiliners instead of the full pads today. Does that seem long to anyone? My stomach still has that nice dark line on it, which seems more prominent now that all the skin isn't stretched out. I've done a couple crunches here and there; I wonder when I will feel good enough to get back to my workout. I have noticed how much better I have bounced back compared to my last pregnancy. That's been nice. I weighed 127 today. Not much left to lose, although I'm sure my boobs are weighing me down a bit :)

Quite impressive Ashley! You are an inspiration! Girls like you who have it all together should have a dozen children! (no pressure :)

Wow, that's so nice that you don't have much more to lose - you look great. As for the bleeding, I think everyone is different. I bled 5 weeks with Chandler and just over 6 weeks with Rowan. In fact my dr. wanted to do a pap at my 6 week appointment but couldn't because I was still bleeding :( Hope it quits for you soon!

Good luck with the bleeding. Sometimes I (Bryan) cut myself shaving and it will bleed longer than I had expected. I usually use tissue to help stop the bleeding, but maybe I'll try panti-liners instead. Good advise. You're the best. I'm still weighing in at an obese 260-ish pounds and I'm sure my boobs are weighing me down a bit too :) It turns out that we have more in common than I thought. Much love from probably your favorite brother-in-law.

Way to go on the weight thing! Jude is one now and I still weigh more then you (5 pounds off my pre-prego) So Way to go! As for bleeding it seems short, 3 weeks in I was still bleeding and walking like I had a stick up my butt, certainly not running after any kids. Happily at 6 weeks I could do a sit up again. Good luck with it all but I think it is completely normal.

I love your blog! You don't know who I am, so let me introduce myself. I'm Andrea Livingston's cousin, Jen, from Minnesota (On Andrea's blog, it's Jen and Landon Trost). I'm 34 weeks pregnant with my first, and it's been exciting for me to read your blog. It's been fun to 'experience' your pregnancy. You have adorable kids! You're an inspiration with losing so much weight already. Way to go! I'm curious how that's going to go for me... :)
