How did your body change after having a baby?

And I don't just mean how much more you weigh now.

For example, I used to have crazy sensitive skin and everything gave me a rash. Now I can wear whatever scents and whatever products I want, without a reaction! I also am less tolerant of spicy foods.

I'm just curious about everyone else because I find it fascinating.

Re: How did your body change after having a baby?

I now have hypothyroidism. Not sure if its because of multiple pregnancies but I developed it while pregnant with my fourth.
My psoriasis is unmanageable, I've had it my entire life but since having kids treatments don't work anymore.
I'm conditioned to think I can eat whatever I want, haha.

Ok, after reading that, I'm scared to have another.

Oh, my hair is falling out. After DS I didn't lose a single strand! Now it is just shedding like crazy. But I'm not sure if it's just from the stress of having both of them. Luckily I can lose quite a bit more hair and be fine, since my hair is so thick.

Re: How did your body change after having a baby?

When I was younger I had board straight normal hair and after each baby it has gotten more and more thick and it's wavy now too. I also have some gray creeping in but that's probably from having 5 kids, not 5 pregnancies.

When I'm pregnant I get dry. My hair is never oily, my skin is usually really dry.

Now that I'm not pregnant, I'm back to normal, have to wash my hair almost everyday. My skin is super oily and breaks out now, from the oil.
Sucks!

Hmmm. Well my abs aren't as tight and the girls could use a lift.

Aside from that, I started to like a greater variety of food since getting pg with DD. Before her, I wouldn't touch avacado. Now, I could eat several in one sitting. (FTR, I don't. I just COULD.) I started liking raw tomatoes. With DS1, it was pink grapefruit juice. All of the "weird" to me foods I began to like, stuck with me.

Oh, and I have terrible looking spider veins all over my calves and ankles now. Tights and leggings are my friends.
