Pre-baby body compared to post- baby

Posted by   + Show Post
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'm sorry! I have a friend who lost a ton of weight and looked amazing then she got pregnant and gained 75lbs! Her daughter is now 8 and she can't stand her body. She exercises and diets and is even seeing a nutritionalist and still can't get any weight off.

I gain all my weight in my hips/lower back I hate it. And I don't have any clue how to get rid of it.

Quoting bchic24:

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!



Quoting MommyIn2008:

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.





Quoting bchic24:

Aw I bet! But I would be ok with losing my body to twins! Lol congrats.







Quoting MommyIn2008:

I was 18 and a dancer/gymnast when I first got pregnant so no I hate my body after 2 kids and half a twin pregnancy Im up almost 40 pounds.

I do have some extra skin and it's wrinkled but it only shows when I'm bent over. Standing up you wouldn't notice. I'm worried I won't be so lucky with my next pregnancy lol.

With my first it wasn't so bad I was back to my original body (mostly) by the time my son was six months old. But I'm not so lucky this time around with my second and darn me I still want a third. Gotta try for a girl!

Ok not the best photo but this is before I got pregnant (I'm the one in the middle) and you can kind of see I'm shaped a bit like a ruler and I am a little heavier.
