'RHOBH' Star Teddi Mellencamp Gets Real About Her 'Postpartum Reality': 'Awaiting The First Post-Baby 💩'

By Jeff Mazzeo

Teddi Mellencamp opened up about her feelings and body three days after giving birth to her beautiful daughter, Dove Mellencamp Arroyave.

The "Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills" star shared her "postpartum reality" with her millions of fans on Friday and while the miracle of childbirth is beautiful, she details some complications that are not so pretty.

"My Day 3 postpartum reality: It is unbelievable, unconditional love. It is an incredibly powerful bond that Dove and I share. It is tears of joy watching Edwin light up when he’s with her. It is bursting with pride watching my older kids gently, lovingly & eagerly jump into their new found big sibling roles," Teddi said before getting into the challenges she is currently facing.

"It is very little sleep because, let’s be real, is 'sleep when the baby is sleeping' actually a thing? It is knowing that feeling delirious will be the new norm for a while. It is humbling, to say the least - switching from the mesh “mom diaper” with ice from the hospital to high waisted compression panties at home. It is drinking way too much prune juice with crushed ice because you are anxiously awaiting the first post-baby 💩. "

She gave birth on the night of February 25 and she hasn't had a mommy movement yet! Poor mommy!

Embracing Her Body


Mellencamp, who is all about body positivity and being healthy, expressed that she is coming to terms with her post-baby body emotionally and is sharing her feelings with fans.

"It is embracing and loving this body of mine. It is lots of laughs when Cruz asks why my stomach hasn’t deflated. It is a flood of emotions when multiple lactation specialists tell you that only your right breast is able to breast feed the baby due to scarring on the left," she explained.

"It is trying to calm your mind when you are continuously running all the hypotheticals of every scenario in your head. It is a constant reminder to live in the moment and feel all the highs and lows that a new baby brings. It is the simultaneous notion of wanting to slow down while still feeling the need to rearrange and organize the entire house. It is doing your best to not compare your journey to anyone else’s. It is overwhelming gratitude for each friend and family member who shows up without judgement, only to bring you love & food. It is a constant roller coaster & I wouldn’t change it for the world."

Teddi ended her powerful statement by declaring her undying love for Dove.

"My baby girl is here and I love her more than words can say. We each have our own journey and this is mine 💕🕊 #postpartum."

'RHOBH' Send Love And Support


Despite all the issues and fighting on the show, the castmates of "RHOBH" really do love each other... except for Lisa Rinna and Denise Richards, we are not too sure they get along IRL.

Kylie Richards commented, "love this post much 🤍🕊," while Lisa Rinna left several crying face 😭😭😭emojis.

The newest member of the Beverly Hills family, Garcelle Beauvais said, "And you still look amazing."

Teddi's fans also sent loving messages and thanked her for her honesty.

"Thank you so much for being vulnerable and honest about your postpartum body, and inspiring women towards body positivity," a fan commented.
