This is a great thread. Someone did one like this back when I was pregnant and it really helped!
I hated my body after my CS. I was covered in SM and couldnt do anything about the flab coz of the 'no exercise' rule But, the difference between then and now is good. And I still don't exercise But don't stress about losing the weight. I didn't lose my baby weight until I went back to work a year later, and I'm still carrying an extra 10lbs over pre-baby weight.
First two pics are six weeks PP and the last pic is 22 months PP I put on nearly four stone when pregnant and had a 9lb 11 baby.
PS - I still hate my body But I plan to do it all over again coz lets face it, it's worth it
You look fabulous!
I have the classic c section over hang/pouch/muffin top some days my belly looks ok and other days I look 5 months pregnant. I wish id had a natural birth for many reasons but one being that so my stomach muscles weren't cut through and so I didn't have the pouch.
I don't like my body anymore and my confidence has taken a huge blow...but I have an amazing daughter and that was her home for 9 months and grew an amazing blessing from God. When we were ttc, I would have gave anything for a huge bump and even stretch marks if it meant I was having a baby so each day I remind myself this and be thankful for what I do have. Stay positive ladies
I had hyperemesis and was really ill in hospital and lost a lot of weight. Even when I had Joshua at 34 weeks I didn't look pregnant, and he was a tiny 2lb 7oz. The stress of losing him means I'm still not really eating right. I'd much rather look like I'd been pregnant!z
I think everyone looks great and you're all really brave posting your pics, I can barely look at myself never mind take a photo :/ I hate the way I look but bless my OH he continues to tell me I'm beautiful everyday, stretchmarks and all
You can upload from an iPhone! If you download the photobucket app, upload your pics onto there, you can then copy and paste the code its why everytime I post a photo they're huge, can't do it as an attached image, but at least you can post pics xx
