Notes from a Swedish stylist

Tiny shoes

Emma has gotten paddle feet and Micky mouse looking hands.

It’s only four weeks left now until the expected due date. This week I did some math and so far I have gained 18 kg, my feet are starting to look like two paddles/hobbit feet so no shoes fit. Oh and I also have big Mickey Mouse hands every morning when I wake up. The first of July can not come soon enough! The other day I just could not help myself and bought these little shoes in a second hand shop for 7 euros.

Maria: Don't worry abaout the weight! After the birth and if you choose to nurse the kilos will disappear almost immediately. I gave birth to twins in November and I have gained only 8,5 kgs. Needless to say that those 8,5 kgs were lost the day after the birth. And in two months of nursing two babies I lost another 10 kgs (I started at 53,5 kgs so do the math). I don't have to tell you how weak I felt and was of course. I was very careful to not gain unnecessary weight before the birth because I was expecting twins and I had to be extra cautious but nursing really takes all the energy so if I had to do it again I would have taken a few extra kgs. So all you have to do is eat healthy food and don’t worry the extra kgs will be lost after the birth while nursing.
