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!

Hubby assures me I look better now. Before, apparently, he was afraid of getting stabbed on my hip bones. Now he stands behind me when I brush my teeth to watch me jiggle until I shoo that fool away. I think mothers should be soft somewhere. we are living comforters, after all.

My self confidence is Better than it was before baby, but I'm not digging the extra skin I was left with.

I HATE my body now and am depressed. I used to be 126. Now I'm 149 and can't get rid of it! It's depressing.

I looked much better. Before dd I was between 98-105 lbs. I'm 5'7, so I looked kind of sickly.
After I had her I was 110-120, I looked tons better.
I'm hoping after this pregnancy I can keep another 10-15 lbs.

 I'm very happy with my post baby body.

I think I was more ok with my body after my second child because I was many years older and more accepting, plus I worked out an ate WAY better during the pregnancy. I never did get to loose the weight because now I'm pregnant again. I think because I am older and a bit wiser about my health I am ok with it.

I actually lost my weight faster after baby #2. After the first one I was able to relax more and rest...there is NO resting if you have 2;-)

Quoting ZakkarysMom:

Yep my body is worse now. Stretch marks and pudge. The stretch marks i can live with. They fade..eventually. The pudge is going to be hard to get rid of.

Quoting bchic24:

I hear it's harder after each baby! We're ttc #2 and this post has me thinking after the next baby I'm screwed lol.

Quoting ZakkarysMom:

After my 1st and 2nd i liked my body. Bigger boobies. :) Now after my 3rd i have stomach pudge that didnt go away like before. Ugh.

I'm bigger after having kids only bc I got on birth control. So no I don't like my body but I was only 5lbs heavier after having kids so that didn't cause my weight gain
