What did you feel like after your baby was born?

How does the belly feel? is it still firm? Loose like jello or saggy like your 80 yr old granny? Just wondering. Yikes I am kinda scared.

  • I felt totally energized and wanted to go home. I was literally counting the minutes until the 24 hours were up, and very nearly signed us out ama

  • Yep, jello belly! Most of it will snap back in time, but it will take some work to get it back to "prebaby" condition.

  • hung a little lower then normal still does, working on getting it back im 19 and it sucks having a granny belly =p, but hopefully with work things go back to some what normal, if not wear your scars proud mommy!

  • I had my baby 12 weeks ago and I would say about 2 weeks ago my body finally feels like mine again. I still have an extra 10lbs on that I need to lose, but I feel like myself again. I had a c-section though, and the recovery is a lot longer....good luck!!
