First ride back - 6 weeks after baby
I was really looking forward to my first ride back after having Leteisha. My bike clothes fit again and I even found some riding tops that I forgot I owned.
The sun was shining and I planned a short ride from Ferny Grove to Albany Creek through Ironbark forest and Bunya. Nothing too strenuous.
It was lovely to feel the wind blowing through my hair and hearing the sound of my tyres rolling over the dirt. Ahhh I have missed riding. It didn’t take long to adjust to my new centre of gravity. Last time I rode I had a big pregnant belly. A few times I ‘forgot’ which way I needed to change my gears… a bit embarrassing, but no one was there to see. I didn’t have to get off the bike on any climbs, so that was a bonus. But my granny gear did get used quite a bit.
Lucky newborns sleep quite a bit, so I wasn’t too worried about leaving her with Tony for a few hours while she slept. I just needed to be close for when she woke up hungry.
Can’t wait until my next ride! Bring it on!

Welcome to baby Leteisha!
Photo: Here I am about 8 hours before Teisha was born. At my mums house enjoying cheese and crackers.
Baby Leteisha was born on 5th August 2012 after a fast 3 hour labour. We made it to hospital in time which was great.
We are slowly getting used to being a family of 4. Felix is a little rough but tries to be loving and gives her kisses on her head.
I will wait until my 6 week check up with the Obstetrician before jumping back on the bike. Need to make sure I am all healed. I don’t want to do any further damage.
Photo: Here we are just after she was born at 3:20 am.
Photo: And a photo of her all snug in a merino wrap. Just like a burrito.
