Re: Post-partum belly photos

Everyone looks great

I didn't take any pp pics last time, but I will this time. I had lost all my prego weight (ended up being about 32lbs) by 6 weeks...maybe sooner, but I didn't weigh myself earlier than that. I was EBFing.

I'm still overweight, but I think I've only gained maybe 16lbs so far w/ this pregnancy. I'm going to *try* and not gain more than 30lbs this time.


A little piece of advice for 1st timers: DON'T WORRY ABOUT WHAT YOUR BELLY LOOKS LIKE. WE ALL HAVE MUCH MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO WORRY ABOUT

Re: Post-partum belly photos

Have you guys ever looked at The Shape of a Mother ? It's an awesome website where viewers send in pictures of their bodies. It's a true showcase of pregnancy, stretchmarks, post-partum, breasts, and all things related to being a mother.

I've never submitted anything, but I do check the site every couple of days.

Someone posted this already in this thread.

I think this is a great thread idea! I never really thought about how my body would look AFTER I have a baby.

Can I just say you look AMAZING pregnant. I am so nervous what I will look like pregnant because I am a bigger girl 18/20 and all I see around me are little petite women with basketball bellies. You give me hope!

Re: Post-partum belly photos

K so here are my pictures (taken today) - dd is 3 1/2 months old and I gained 60 pounds (no idea how???) Now I am down 40 but still have 20 to go!




To any soon to be mamma that is thinking of ebf - go for it - I haven't really done any work towards losing anything yet and it keeps coming off so yay for my calorie burning milk factory!!!!!!!
