  • depends on what you mean by fully returned?? I mean I went right back down to my original weight, but my hips are little wider, && I have stretch marks && my ab muscles are no longer tight. before I got pregnant I almost had a six pack, now my muscles are really weak. && the other question, some people have more elasticity in their skin then others, especially women who don't smoke.

  • i had my first and i lost all the baby weight and am back to my regular size weight. BUT your body is never the same. the shape is completely different. hips/ boobs whatever else. for me atleast and im a small girl. it has to do with your genes if your mom lost it all then you probably will but every one is different. but you will never be the same after a baby

  • I was able to come down to my original weight, but my body was shaped differently. And then there are the stretch marks.

  • Only gained 20 lbs, lost all the weight within a month, bigger breasts, bigger hips. I actually feel more like a woman now! (I was pretty stick-figure-ish before) Am I the only one who likes the post-baby body better than the pre-?
