Did having a baby widen your hips?

I'm pregnant with my first and actually hoping this baby will make my hips wider! I"ve always had really narrow hips and hate them. Do they get wider, rounder?

  • I don't think it did. I gained more weight on them, so maybe they look like they got a little wider but not that it actually widened them

  • I've always had really narrow hips and still do after 3 vaginal births. They did temporarily get wider after each birth, but went back to narrow normal within a few months.

  • When a female has a baby vaginally, the skeletal frame is never the same. The hips do widen. Not all women will notice it, but everyone else will! :)

  • i have a womanly figure. I have had 8 children. I think I look the way I do because I like to eat and sit on my ass. hahha. I agree, it's temporary, unless you get hungry a lot and are lazy like me.

  • I'm pretty thin and I was hoping the same thing! When I had my first, my hips went back to the same size they were. I just had my second and my waist is back, but my hips are bigger! I know a lot of other people would complain, but I'm happy! I think it depends on your body. Good luck, hope you get what you want!
