How do you feel after having a baby?
Better or worse?!
I feel worse, I feel like my facial structure has changed and I don't photograph as well!

My son is 7 months. And it can be bad... depending what you started at. Lol. Im not fat i guess (people say that but i think they do it to make me feel better). But im not happy with it. So its something i am trying to change


Quoting goddess99:

33 isn't bad though, I gain 80 and never lost it, my baby is almost 11 years old lol.

Quoting chelsone:

Thats pretty much how I feel as well. I think my body looks great but my face has changed alot. I weaned DD when she was a year (4months ago) and my skin has goten alot better sense and i'm strting to feel a bit better about it lately but still not as good as I would like to feel lol 

Quoting kss12:

Yes yes yes!!!! I so feel the same! My body is.. I think better than before, I have a little more curve and obviously bigger tata's! But my face! What happened?!?! I'm nursing too and I was telling my mom I just feel old, and I'm not old, I'm in my mid 20's so I shouldn't feel like I look old! So weird! My mom said she felt the same until she hit late 30's early 40's. I can't wait that long to feel like I have a pretty face again!!


Quoting Mel0dy:

I feel like my Face has changed as well. I know it sounds dumb but I feel like being pregnant and breastfeeding made me age faster or something I dont what it is about it but I dont feel as good about the way my face looks. I think you look GREAT by the way

I feel worse. It never bothered me until this time around and I have 9 weeks left with baby number two and it is going to be a lot harder to get in shape and lose weight!

I lost my butt, literally speaking, I'm thinner after birth than before I fell pregnant and I wish I could gain weight. Whilst pregnant, I lost weight when baby gained. You are gorgeous though. I think we are harder on ourselves than other people...

You're your toughest critic! But it's hard when you don't feel good about yourself no matter how much you doll up! Hubby tells me I look better now than ever but I just don't feel it!

After my son I felt ok. With him other than the stretch marks my body probably looked better post baby lol. After my daughter I just felt gross. I lost so much weight so fast that my body didn't just "bounce" back like it had the first time.

You're beautiful. I think it's the hormones that make us feel so bad. I was offered meds for depression with the first one but I refused because I didn't want to stop breast feeding him. The other times wasn't as bad but I felt fat and ugly, although my aunt said she couldn't believe how flat my stomach was when I went home from the hospital. Hopefully your depressed feelings won't last long. Your baby is gorgeous, by the way.

Thank you!
It's not like I'm depressed by any means.. I don't look in the mirror every day and feel depressed.. It's more motivational to me to find out what I can do to look like I did pre baby! It's hard becoming a mom as men don't understand. So it's hard to talk to them without them giving you 100 fake compliments lol
