The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills mom embraced her postpartum body in high-waist compression panties.

Teddi Mellencamp Pregnant Baby Bravocon

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave's life today looks very different than it did just days ago. On Tuesday, February 25, Teddi gave birth to her third baby, a sweet little girl named Dove. Now that mama are baby are both home from the hospital and establishing their new routine, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fitness buff is opening up about her postpartum life — and her postpartum body. 

On February 28, the mom of three shared a photo of herself standing in profile, with her bare belly on display. "My Day 3 postpartum reality," she wrote, beginning a list of everything this sentimental, beautiful, sleep-deprived stage has been for her. 

"It is unbelievable, unconditional love," she began. Later, she touched upon the myriad other emotions she's feeling: "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," Teddi wrote. "Embracing and loving this body of mine. It is lots of laughs when Cruz asks why my stomach hasn’t deflated."

Perhaps the greatest takeaway was this. "It is doing your best to not compare your journey to anyone else’s," Teddi wrote. "We each have our own journey and this is mine." Read her full post below.

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. 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 💩. 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. 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. 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
