Pre preg/post preg belly thread :)


So following on from the others i thought it be nice to do a thread to give preg woman worrying about there figure after pregnancy a lil hope and to show what actually is normal and NOT what you see in magazines There was a thread like this kicking around when i was preg and it gave me alot of hope, and what to expect so thought be nice to do again.

So I got very bad stretch marks while preg due to gaining 5 stone and going from a size 8 to a size 16-18 while preg and a size 16 after birth. Im now back to pre preg weight but i know my stomach will never be the same and i accept it now....but it doesnt look as bad as what i thought it would while i was preg SO.....ill start the ball rolling i know some dont have pre preg full belly shots (as we didnt care about our bellys much back then!) but just post what you do have i do understand as well jacob is older and ive had longer to adjust to my belly, but it would be nice to share

So pre preg (about 3 years ago now!)


Pic's of me stretch marks about 36weeks but this is when i got concerned lol



Preg 42weeks


And now

Question: Ema, did your belly seem saggy after birth? I had terrible stretch marks (still have) but its more the baggy skin I'm concerned about. Will it tighten back up?

You look great!!

I might post mine.... My stomach isn't too bad now and my c-sec scar is fading nicely. I kinda like my scar actually, does that make me weird?
