All is not lost! Lol I am 8 days post c-section with my 2nd child. I had gained 54lbs this time and as of yesterday I've lost 25lbs. DS as 8lbs 9oz. I'll add a pic of me at 39 weeks pregnant for comparison.



So don't worry ladies...it can happen! :)

women need to be realistic when it comes to pregnancy weight and realize we are all different. Expecting to be back to normal in a month is silly. It took you 9 months to get there give yourself 9 months to get back to the ol you and stop pressuring yourselves. You have a new baby, focus on that not the size of your waist line :)

This is exactly how I feel. Also, something a lot of women need to keep in mind is there are parts of your body that will never go back to the size you were prepreg. Like hips.

Absolutely. I am not at all back to my pre pregnancy weight or body. The point of my post was to give some hope. I was very worried that being older this time and it being my 2nd child I would never look the same. I have hope today. :)

I dunno. Lol My dr kept joking that BC it is a 2nd c-section I get a mini tummy tuck. I'm thinking he was serious! Lol It took much longer with DD, maybe muscle memory works better the 2nd time around?
