... do you have any other long term or permanent effects from your pregnancies?

I know some people say their feet got bigger or their eyesight changed.

I had my youngest just over a year ago and my hips are still killing me! My doctor recommended physical therapy so I'll probably do that soon.

Also, my gums seem to be a lot more sensitive during and after pregnancy.

My eyesight got better actually, so my contact prescription is lower now. I don't have stretch marks really. The one big thing that's changed though is back pain. I never had a problem until I got pregnant and its still going strong now.

Wow! That's cool that your eyesight got better!

My eye doctor was pretty surprised about it! He told me I should have a ton of babies and maybe I wouldn't need contacts anymore. To which I said "uhhhh, how about no?" Haha.

My back hurts me so bad. I'm only 21 so I shouldn't have back problems lol. Ever since u had my DD, if I stand for too long or sit in the floor my back starts tingling and burning and then comes the pain. I can't go to the doctor because I don't have insurance and since I'm 21 or older I don't qualify for Medicaid.

I went from a 9-9 1/2 shoe size to a solid 10.  It actually worked out for the better, bc it's easier to find shoes now! :)

That's no good. :-( How long ago did you have your dd? Hopefully it will get better with time.
