  • Honestly I was lucky I guess cause it went right back to the way it was before. I'm pregnant again though so I may not be so lucky lol

  • i think it's way better. i wasn't a health freak before i got pregnant. i have never been chunky, always thin, but after giving birth and working so hard to get my body back i became a nutrition freak and my body just looks tighter and more toned after pregnancy than before. before-skinny but not very toned, after-skinny and toned

  • After my first two pregnancies, my body did not change to much, I bounced right back. After my 3rd and last pregnancy, my body was forever changed. The only true difference was it ended in an emergency c-section. But afterwards, my hair started to thin, I was extremely fatigued, I started to become intolerant to temperatures (hot and cold). It was really strange, and has never gone back to the way it was before.

  • you don't wanna know. I had 5 abdominal surgeries in a 19 month span. And my weight went up/down like 120 pounds total (hyperemesis, malnutrition, and eventually tube feedings and strict bedrest) my stomach is a hot mess. boobs turned out OK though, lol.... surprisingly gravity has avoided them so far.

  • I have better boobs and they are still holding up well to gravity, but from the waist down lower body is ruined. LOL! I had a bit of a poochy belly beore kids regardless how skinny I was. (bad genes). But after kids, I am in dire need of a tummy tuck and my pelvic bones have not went back to the original position.
