  • Well I thought my preggo belly was after preggo belly, not so cute. But I have noticed I got a nice booty You just have to find what you DO like on your body and wear clothes that flatter that particular part more than the parts you dont like.

  • I don't like my pregant body or after but I am going to really work on it once this baby is born. The only good thing other than my child from it is larger breasts

  • you just have to accept it for what it is. i was never very skinny and gained like 80lbs. when i was only 5'2". so yeah, i looked like a total whale. lol. im still 30lbs. heavier than when i got pregnant, but i think its important to love myself. dont let your body give you babyblues...

  • That's right... it's for the babies. You may not look the same, but so. You have a beautiful child to show for it in the end. I loved being preggers. I loved having that baby afterward. My body, so it's changed... oh well. I can work on it when I can, but the most important thing is that tiny being that relies on me so completely.
