  • i had one baby three months ago and i gained 60 pounds, my boobs got all saggy, i started to get a little stretch marks on my hips, and something happen with my csection cut where the doctor got a piece of skin caught the wrong way or something and looks fucked up, like its swollen on the top (hard to explain) and they said the only way i could fix it is by going for plastic surgery, i also started to break out bad while i was pregnant and its not that bad anymore, but its not as clear as it was before i got pregnant. i think thats it.

  • I've only had one. I have stretch marks on my belly and the tops of my thighs and I'm a few (like, 5) pounds heavier and my breasts are a little softer. I seem to notice that my belly doesn't "pouch" in the same way it used to, lol, there seems to be more fat around my waist. Nothing disfiguring or horrible. My stretch marks are the worst of it, and I have them worse than almost any other woman I know.

    Why do you ask? Are you worried?

  • PS, like another mom said I have a little bit of acne now where I didn't before, but only about a week before my period.

  • my tummy deflated and went 100% numb. my boobs are pretty similar... slight sag, not awful considering how big they are

  • I got a c section scar..... my boobs were deflated but then I gained 7 lbs and now they are just a little softer but I still love them! Otherwise, everything has stayed the same.

  • Only change after my first was my boobs got bigger and saggier. However, with my second I now am permanently torn down below because the OB who delivered was a bitch.
