If you’ve hung around these parts for a while now, you know that I wrote up blog posts for my first, second, and third trimesters while I was pregnant with Sunday. But are you aware that the fourth trimester is a thing? It’s a bit of a misnomer because in reality there are only three trimesters (I mean, duh). That said, it’s become a common term for the first three months after giving birth. And it’s something I don’t really hear talked about often. Once the baby is out in the world, they’re kind of all anyone cares about. Seriously – you go from having medical checkups like every other week to a single postpartum exam after six weeks. It can be jarring.
