What post-baby bellies REALLY look like...

  1. Yeah....Maybe I'm unlucky, but my post baby body does NOT look that good.

    I should make a picture book of myself naked and sell it as birth control...
  2. :lol: We're our own harshest critics :hugs:
  3. My stomach is fairly flat...but there's no way to 'fix' or hide the loose skin and stretch marks. =( It's very frustrating, b/c short of surgery, there's nothing I can do no matter how much weight I have lost or lose. What is scariest to me is looking at myself in the mirror...I see my Mom's stomach...the one I vowed as a child I'd never have! I guess you can't deny genetics.
  4. Dealing with my own post-baby body here... I'm so impressed at what my body was capable of, but of course dealing with essentially a whole new body is hard! I had lost about 45 pounds RIGHT before getting pregnant, gained 50 while pregnant, and have only lost 20 since having my guy. Yikes!

    One website that is neat is The Shape of a Mother. I'd recommend that site to anyone seeking a little more reality. :smile:
  5. My pre-baby body looks worse than most of theirs, and no, there ISN'T a baby on the way either!
