My Labor and Delivery Story

My Labor and Delivery Story video

I still remember it like it was yesterday. I heard a pop at 2:30 am in the morning. It was weird, I’ve never heard something like that before. I thought I was imagining it. I so badly wanted my baby to be born already, I thought it was just a dream. My boyfriend didn’t believe that I might be in labor despite our bed soaking wet. I went to the bathroom to pee and I saw some tiny hairs in the toilet.

“That has to be my baby’s hair” I thought to myself. Finally, I decided to call the advise nurse and they let me know I was indeed in labor. If you want to know more, please watch my video. Motherhood is so beautiful. As much as I hated being pregnant and being in labor for 36+ hours, my beautiful baby girl was all worth it.

3-MONTH UPDATE WITH ORANGETHEORY! + POST-PARTUM DEPRESSION

3-Month Update video!

Hi everyone!

I know it’s been awhile but I am back and ready to commit to updates! I went on a 7-day cruise in July and so my update on my weightloss is before the cruiseHere are the results of OTF after 3 months:

  • 10 lbs lost
  • face looks skinnier
  • stronger (my base pace has increased from 4 MPH to 6 MPH!)
  • skin cleared up (I thank my diet and OTF for this)
  • no more post-partum depression 

I believe my last bullet point is the most important because I care about my mental health. Post-partum depression is real. I had my doubts whenever someone mentioned it; it was only when I was diagnosed with PPD when I realized this is a big important issue a lot of people tend to skip over. My boyfriend didn’t know what or how to support me during this time. It’s partially not his fault; he’s the youngest of 5 boys. Plus no one really prepares you for PPD.

I truly believe OTF played a huge part in helping me get over my post-partum depression. “The afterburn effect” that OTF consistently mentions is what I think is the feeling you feel after the workout. I can seriously feel my endorphins kicking in once I’m done.

I forgot to mention PPD in my video (linked above) and I feel like I barely stressed the importance of me getting over PPD in the video, hence this post. Let me know if any of you can relate, or what your story is! I would love to connect and hear your story.
