Prior to getting pregnant with ds, I had lost 80lbs. I had discovered hula hoop dance, and I absolutely love it. Mid way through pregnancy it got terribly uncomfortable to hoop. Also, I was sick a lot during my pregnancy. I was so excited to have lo so that I could get back into my routine of hooping regularly. I had a terrible birthing experience. We weren't sure if ds was going to make it. He suffered siezures, apnea, and had trouble regulating his body temp. They did a c section but not fast enough. Two days after being released from the hospital I felt bad, my incision was excessively painful, I had a fever, and felt awful. I went back to the hospital and they told me, "you're fine. You're just overly stressed and need some rest. I'm going to write you a prescription for sleeping pills." They sent me on my way. A day later I was right back in the hospital and had to have 4 surgeries back to back. They cut out 7 inches of tissue and muscle from my stomach. I was on a wound vac for a month and a half. My body hurts in ways I could have never imagined. I have gained sooooo much weight back. The 80 plus some. I'm so embarassed of my body. I've never had to watch what I eat because I've always been so active. I need help! I feel like eveything I eat goes right to my stomach, legs, arms. I'm really not trying to be down on myself. I went through the hardest experience of my life. Lo is 6 months old now and my body still hurts. I miss my sacred circle. I still hoop, I just don't have the stamina I used to. Any advice would be much appreciated!!
