Anyone else have the exact same body after pregnancy?

My DD is 10 mos. and I have the exact body I had before pregnancy. I thought I'd get wider hips (which I wanted) but no, even my boobs are the same!! This is my first, could that be why? Does my age matter (am 28, not terribly old but not that young either). Anyone else the same?

  • After I had my twins, I was the same way. I looked just like I did before I got pregnant with them. Of course, after my youngest, my body hasn't yet returned to what it used to be! lol

  • OP here, I actually wanted to look different! I thought it would be nice to have some more womanly curves, but no such luck for me:(

  • No. Even though I was back at my pre-pregnancy weight I found that my hipbones and ribs were sort of stretched out and not the same measurements. It was years before I could go back to the same sizes. I did some exercising and Pilates .
