Hee Hee! Okay, I'm really not laughing at you, it's just my daughter was the same way. I whined and whined to all my friends about how I couldn't put her down, she wouldn't ride in the car seat, etc. Two of my friends who actually thought I was just lying, or spoiling her or whatever had second children (girls)who were the exact same way. They both apologized to me later for thinking I was a wimp! Anyway, the bad news is that two years and some change later, my daughter is still the same way. Some call it spoiled, I call it high-maintenance, but the truth is that my baby boy is way less trouble. I don't have any advice except just grit your teeth and tell yourself you'll miss her when she leaves for college.
And AliMarie, how funny. If I didn't have a year full of weddings to attend, I'm not sure how much fire I'd have to get back in top shape before I start thinking about the next baby!
I did notice last time that no matter how hard or how often I worked out, that I never really saw any results until about 2 months after I stopped bf'ing. Even though I knew that extra fat was there for a reason, it was still incredibly discouraging.
(And here's my little secret....I'm still in maternity inderwear... because of the shelf.)
