I had my baby boy eight weeks ago and npw im back at work. Ive been getting asked "when are you due?" Its mostly when i feel good about myself. Grr i understand itll take a while to lose my belly but i just feel so awkward after i get asked. Just needed to let that out. :)

Just tell the person that the precious bundle has been born.   I lost most of my belly after dd was born but gained all the weight back within 2 years for some reason.  I blame stress.

 I know its frustrating but the baby weight will come off.  Hang in there and concentrate on being mom = )

 I got it all the time. Fact is, not many people bounce right back. You're going to have a pooch for a little bit. Don't let it bother you. Just tell them you have a beautiful infant at home :)

I know what you mean. I was a sahm for the first 3 years of my sons life but had to go back to work when my daughter was 11 weeks. I feel like I dont have the same bond and relationship with her as I do with my son. Breaks my heart. I love my kids so much but feel like I don't know them at all sometimes. :'(

I got asked that when my son was 5 weeks old. He makes me so happy, I didn't care. I just told the lady he's 5 weeks already and she apologized.
