Does anyone like their body more since having kids? You always hear about how everyone hates what having a baby has done to them but never about how they love it! I personally think I look better now than before my son!

I enjoyed being pregnant and miss it...I was ok with my body after my babies.

It's weird but I miss it and loved it too! Even though I had hypermesis and was miserably I'll and spent the whole time in and out of hospitals but I do miss it! I will admit I hated my body right after but once I got down to my regular weight I was super happy with my new shape!

I liked my body more before my first but that's because i actually had boobs then and had some weight to me but now after baby #2 I wear a bra so it looks like I have boobs and I'm down 10lbs since before I had my first. (i had no weight needing to be lost to begin with)

Hm. Yeah that makes sense. Are you going to try to put back on the weight?

Thanks I am way excited. I think I will join a gym in the summer after my twins are born. My kids are so worth the stretch marks but I can't accept having a "flabby" body plus the gym really helps my asthma.

Yeah I have some pretty bad stretch marks but they don't bother me. I gained a lot of weight to my upper body during pregnancy and ended up with chunky arms! That drive me nuts because I always have trouble trimming down my arms!
