I don't use it as an excuse. I was down pounds when I gave birth. I have a pooch, 6 kids will do that, but I am fat, always have been, but I also always had a fairly flat stomach. 

I'd say up to a year it could still be baby weight, beyond that no.

I have to say i disagree.. Its normal to gain weight during pregnancy and its not like it all comes off right after the baby lol

Quoting momofirish3: Never.

I agree with it being up to a year

It's always an excuse. It isn't a great one, but it will be forever.

Everyone's body is different. Women will always have different bodies. Pregnancy will always effect women's bodies differently. 

Really, that's all. Bodies are different.

I do not question why anyone's body looks the way it does honestly. I myself have several scars and I am very thin and have trouble keeping weight on. Who am I to look at someone else and even expect an excuse of any kind?

People shouldn't have to make excuses for the way they look, the sizes they are to ANYONE.

Oh I meant you never have to stop blaming them. Shoo these kids cause me to stress eat, my ds is a food waster so I naturally have to finish his plate. So many reasons these crazy babies are to blame for my being fat, it started when I got pregnant and hasn't stopped lol.
