Wow! I really wanted to see this thread. Now I'm no longer scared of what I'm going to look like. All you mommies look GREAT! I just hope I look as good!

This is really comforting! I'm due with my first in 5 weeks and have been worried about how long it will take for this giant belly to go away. Everyone shrunk so fast!

Re: Post-partum belly photos

I only have pictures from after DS was born, but here is before, during, and after.

Before: 135 pounds, very athletic.


During: 37 weeks, around 175 pounds.


After: Approximately 18 months postpartum. 140 pounds, though because of how muscular and athletic I was before pregnancy I was carrying more than 5 extra pounds of fat. A lot of my pre-pregnancy weight was muscle that was lost over time. My belly remained baggy and stretched, and never returned to normal.

Re: Post-partum belly photos

So this is the most recent pre-belly pic I have....I'm about 2 months prego here. I'm the one all the way to the right.


These are at about 38 1/2 weeks. I had her a few days after this.



And this is 8 weeks PP. Still have about 8 more lbs....but I'm EBF'ing so I'm hoping that helps. I gained 35lbs through the whole pregnancy so we'll see. haha



By the way, all of you ladies look absolutely beautiful! XD

I think that is a wonderful idea. so many moms feel self concious after havinf a baby, and maybe seeing the pics of the other new mommies will help. I know it would have helped me, I am a bigger woman to start with, so after I had my kids, I felt huge! Sorry I dont have any pics.

Re: Post-partum belly photos

Question for all those pp moms...how did you lose the extra 5 lbs belly? I've heard it stays a while if your breastfeeding- anyone lose it before/after weaning?
