Er hat sich schon so verändert. Er krabbelt, hat Zähnchen bekommen, schaut sich ganz viel ab und versucht sich durchzusetzen. Bei mir, aber auch bei Robin. Er kämpft gegen das an, was ihm nicht gefällt und entwickelt sich immer mehr zu einem ganz wunderbaren, freundlichen kleinen Jungen ♡ was bin ich froh, dass ich dich hab und erleben darf, wohin die Reise mit dir geht
It's tincture time! • Again, if it's not a positive comment, please save it.• I said I'd share more about MY postpartum and placenta encapsulation journey, so here it is. I continued my magic pills and weaned at #6weekspostpartum as suggested and actually felt great. I think I took them once or twice after to get me through some really exhausting days and they offered just the boost I needed. This week I'm feeling incredibly low on energy, unusually weepy (not depressed, just overly emotional,) exhausted and can't seem to catch up, and my milk supply isn't as full as it has been. (I blame and a** hole toddler and a teething baby.) So I'm breaking out more magic reserves! I opted to have capsules and a tincture made for prolonged use and knowing I had this all natural assistance for a rainy day (ha!) is so comforting. It's in a dropper bottle and I can just squeeze a couple drops in water/tea to reap the same benefits as my capsules. This is something I can store and use throughout my life, all the way through menopause, to ease that hormone shift as well! I don't believe I would have had been hit with full blown PPD this time, but I can certainly say that it has made for a much more composed #4thtrimester. I can certainly say it's just not because it's baby #2 and I know that at #13weekspostpartum all of my feelings are completely normal, HOWEVER, there isn't much downside to having a natural assistant to make me feel more stable. I'm not being hard on myself, but I am relieved to know that I can have a boost when I need it. For those who have asked, the only side effects I've experienced are very mild headaches from time to time and continued pelvic girdle pain. Consuming after pregnancy keeps some of the relaxin hormone in my system, so workouts are still a little uncomfortable and my ankles are a little achey. But for all the other benefits I've experienced, that doesn't even phase me. This may not be for everyone, but look into it if you're curious!
