Things getting bigger with each pregnancy?

So in my other post about jean size, a couple women said that they have too much junk in their trunk to wear low-rise jeans... got me thinking... With each pregnancy, does your butt (and hips and thighs) just get bigger and bigger?

Yes. My boobs also. I used to be in a size 3 before pregnancy after my other 2 I was in size 14. Now after this one I have no clue. My boobs before pregnancy was 34 B. After my girls, I was 36 D. Now Im outgrowing an F.

I think it depends on the person. Everyone is different.

My hips spread but I was still able to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight (thanks to an overactive thyroid). I think too many women obsess about having to be the same size they were before having a baby. Hello your body will forever be different. If you manage to get back to a size negative 3 then great, but if you are now a bigger size, oh well. Be happy with your body and know it is the way it is because you have the wonderful blessing of your children in your life. :)

3 pregnancies, over 30, over 5'10 and under  140.

It's all about how bad you want it.

My butt, hips & thighs have always been big.  I work out (not right now, the dr won't let me) and really I dnt lose "weight" in my butt, hips, or thighs.  They just get toned and firm.  I guess it's genetics, my father is the same way.  Pregnancy really doesn't make them bigger or smaller...they just stay the same big ol size.

No, not really for me.  I'm pregnant with #2 now, but after I had my first son I could easily fit back into my old jeans and I went back to my pre-pregnancy weight without any dieting and exercising.  It depends on the person.  My mom weighed less after having my younger sister than she did before she got pregnant.  Some if it has to do with genetics for me at least.
