After I have this baby will my boobs be saggy or go back to normal? How do you loose the excess weight? I'm about a 34 C now, and I always did have a big butt, so will that get bigger as well lol. But by me being short 5'1 it makes me look chubby sometimes.

For the most part, yes. Breastfeeding can help with weight loss. Proper diet and exercise will too. I've always had smaller breasts, so pregnancy had actually helped me there. Some women grow, others stay the same, some shrink.

You might have some extra tummy skin from being stretched. It happens. Again, exercise can help. Your body is made to do this.

Here... 42w 5d pregnant in Jan (2013)... Day I had my baby.

Late July/Early August after about 4 months of running. This was baby 8, BTW. You can stay in shape.

It feels like a waterbed after baby. LOL! It will slowly shrink down a lot by itself. I would highly suggest NOT exercising for no less than 8 weeks after baby is born. You will want to. Don't do it! I tried at 4 weeks I think it was with one of mine. Have myself a horrible hemorrhoid (sorry if TMI) for over a week. Your body NEEDS time to recover, even if you feel like your fine.

Some depends on your genetics. The saggy breasts being one of those things! After 4 babies, some parts of my body will never be the same. One kiddo stretched out my rib cage (that was not comfortable) and my stretch marks, while faded, will be there forever. I don't mind though. It's worth it for the precious baby!

My mom never got stretch marks during pregnancy. She has had 3 kids my boobs look bigger than hers but i guess once i have children they will change. But after the women in my family had kids there chest stayed bigger.

As long as I keep my "new boobs" I will be happy lol. No worries about stretch marks or gaining weight, they will fade and I am going to workout to help get rid of any baby fat :D

This was me about a year and one month after I had baby #4. I had just started working out again a month prior to this picture and lost about 10 pounds. I am also 5'1 but my breasts are small, 34B.
