Are you happier w your body after you had a baby?

I know that I am. I weigh less and I am more toned....I have learned that being a mom doesn't only mean taking care of your babies but taking care of yourself also. Happy mommies make happy children.

  • I feel the same way. I am happier to. I am lucky though because I have small boobs so they don't sag (even after breastfeeding) and I appreciate my curves. I am also 10lbs less than before I got pregnant. Eat healthy and walk my dog. I didn't appreciate my body as much as I do now

  • i'm happier with it not because it looks better but because i don't have the hang ups i used to have...

  • No! I don't think I will ever be happy with my body ever again as long as I have stretch marks all over my stomach and legs. Even, though I've gotten bigger boobs and lost more weight that what I was before I was pregnant, I still feel very ugly.

  • I love my mommy body, fat, stretch marks and all. I am proud of the way my babies made my body look. IMO,I think that women should have fat and curves, and my husband agrees with me ♥

  • I'm not thinner or more toner, but after blowing like a baffoon while pregnant, I definitely like the way it looks afterwards.

  • My body is not better looking. I have loose skin/stretch marks and I wiegh a little more but I feel less of a need to be attractive. Its kinda like "Hey, my body has worked. It can look however it wants." I realize that I can be proud of how my body is healthy not how it is sexy.

  • This is a working body! I may have to give up a career in taking my clothes off for money, but I earned these stripes damnit! I don't get all hung up over my body. My DH told me the other day, after all these years and kids he is so emotionally attached to me he would be lost without me. He also said that everytime he touches me he gets a woody, that has to stand for something!

  • I don't know how one could be happier with their body after having a baby. I'm not but more power to those that are.
