3 Bumps

I know this is so vain but.....

who else is afraid of what you will look like after the baby? I had my daughter 5 years ago and looked better after having her. I dropped an additional 10-15 pounds and was in my jeans the same week that i had her. I am scared with this one being my second and I will be 34 when I have it, that it isn't going to be pretty afterwards.

  • I wasn't so lucky after #1. I'm preggers with #2 now and weighed more at the start of this pregnancy than I did at the end of the 1st one. Can I say I hate you without hurting your feelings? :)

  • i was not concerned as i had my daughter at 42 and not much i could do anyway, preganacy takes it toll
    but boobs ended up in a different zip code
    but on the other hand, i got no stretch marks at all

    roll of the dice for the most part

  • It seems that take good care of yourself I don't think that would be a problem, just eat healthy, you still young and can get rid of those extra pounds easy, it seem you have good metabolism (or genes) :)

  • I gotta say, I'm a little worried as well. I used to be about 260lbs a few years ago but changed my life by eating right and working really hard. I lost about 100lbs. I don't want to look like that again but at least I know that I can get the weight off when the time comes. I eat great during the day but I get crazy late night cravings for unhealthy food and the my husband doesn't care about my weight so all I have to do is say "pancake" and he has one if front of me. lol. I'm trying to eat healthy most of the time but give in to cravings sometimes.
