Horrible belly after having kids..............................

How the hell do i find jeans or pants to fit?  I have been asked numerous times if i'm pregnant, like i don't feel f*&ken conscious enough.  I have a 5 year old a 2 year old with allergies and a 6 month old who i'm breastfeeding give me a freakin break!  I've barely got time to eat!  Oh and my youngest we are taking to a skin specialist to see if he has allergies too as he's had a few severe bouts of excema.   More of a rant as well sorry.  Does anyone else feel this way?

Before this pregnancy, I looked about 4 months pregnant...

I have stretch marks like crazy and a scar from that stretched about an inch up from my belly button from where I once had a piercing...

Now I am pregnant again, guess it can only get worse from here.

Mine is mainly saggy i hate it.  I didn't love my body before i had kids but the only thing i had to complain about was my teeth.  After having 3 kids in just over 5 years i don't like my ass, thighs, belly, hair (falling out at a rate of knots and omg i'm amazed how many greys are coming out now).  I feel your pain.

Thanx for the idea i had heard about Spanx but hadn't heard any real confirmation about how good it was yet i find it hard to believe people when i know they're being paid to say its good.  Will have to give it a try.

 Sorry to hear...I am pregnant with my first so no clue on how I will look afterwards...I was about 15 lbs overweight before though but I lost 20 while pregnant when sick. Anyway... good luck momma!

one of my good friends and i were pregnant at the same time and due around the same time.  she introduced me to shapewear (she had twins!) and i'm a believer.  lol.  i am 7 mos pp and i still have the jiggles.  i totally feel your pain.  i still wear my full panel maternity jeans.  but when i wear the shapewear i can wear my pp jeans confidently.  i do not know what i would do if i got asked if i was pregnant.  i think i would cry.

If all i had was strech marks I would be so happy. Have any of you noticed that people tell you about the strech marks when your pregnant but don't tell you about the excess skin left. Maybe it was just me. My daughter was 9 lbs coming out. Did anyone else get the two inch long belly flap after birth?

um yeah, there's like 3 folds.  one below my belly button and one on each side of my hip bones.  lmao.  it's disgusting.

I still wear my maternity pants too but i'm so embarassed by doing so.  When people ask if i'm pregnant i want to deck them!  I wonder my last 2 boys were big ones my belly didn't look so bad after my first he was only 7.14 second boy was 9.12 and a half lol and my last boy was 10.4
