No i am not happy at all. I will not show my belly. Its not the stretch marks that bother me. Its the weight.

I am very happy with my figure after 1 child. I have an ass, hips, and stomach that I just love with stretch marks and all.

I agree I don't like those pics much. I don't think any girl wants To show their stomach around you, I know I don't.

I'm not happy with my stomach but the shape it's in has nothing to do with my kids.  How do I know this?  Let me say first that I fell for that idea that once I had kids my body wouldn't be great again line of CRAP!   Part of why I fell for it is beacause I had gotten to my prepreg weight a year after I had our oldest and wasn't happy with my body.   But when our oldest was 4 I found that I needed to lose some weight so I started working out 5 days a week and taking care of myself better (watching calories, drinking plenty of water, getting enough sleep)   By the end of 3 months, not only had I lost 30 pounds and gotten back to my pre-pregnancy weight BUT ALSO my body was in the best shape it's ever been in.  It was the exercise that made the difference.  I couldn't believe it and probably wouldn't have ever believed it was possible if I hadn't experienced it first hand.  I do have stretch marks but they never really bother me.

We've since added to our family and I'm right back to gross tummy & extra weight.   But I know that once I start doing my cardio again and making better choices otherwise that it will be MUCH better.   Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that this is the case for ALL women but I think it is the case much more than people realize.    When I was pregnant with our first I actually had people that told me that the weight would NOT come off and the body would NOT be good again.   I'm glad I didn't listen!
