How did childbirth change your body? (TMI welcome)

So I had a rough go of it for my first and only child. I'm 23 with saggy breasts (even though I always wore a bra), stretchmarks on them and my belly and my hips and my thighs (even though I used cocoa butter daily), got acne marks on my back, my feet got bigger, The inside of my vagina changed (noticed when applying nuva ring), back hurts from extra weight, still have masking around my eyes from eclampsia, wedding rings don't fit, can't fit back into pre pregnancy clothes and I have a gym membership! I'll let you know if I think of anything else.

  • I used to like the shape of my boobs but thought they were to small, now I like the size but hate the shape

  • I've got stretch marks and my boobs and stomach sag a little now. I'm back into pre-pregnancy size 11 months post partum. Pretty much everything else is the same, if not better.

  • I'm the same size, but with stretch marks all over, everwhere. It's the stupidest looking thing - stretch marks all over a skinny person. :(

  • Mudgirl - thank you, I like how you said that! I'm not going to say that having kids made me fat, I'm going to say they made me squishier! :)

  • Only two major things....1) I now have a c-section scar and 2) my nipples are bigger. Other than that I've been pretty lucky.

  • I have stretch marks over everything!!! My stomach has extra skin (not sure how to get rid of it besides surgery), my boobs are a lot smaller and saggier then before kids. However, I am back to the same size I wore before getting pregnant, and recently dropped a pant size. My little girl is only 3 months old.
