I don't recall exactly. .. but I can say that it was a good few months before I was beginning to feel anywhere close to my old self.
Be patient with your body. .. every woman is different so it's hard to put a timeline on it. . .
Lots of factors could impact this too. . such as if you breastfeed, what was your physical condition before, during after pregnancy, eating habits, genetics, etc. ...
I agree with APen it can vary so much! with my first I was 17, started pregnancy a size 6 which I could still wear at 5 months pregnant! I breastfed, had a swollen pregnant belly for less than a week after and was wearing size 8 cropped trousers by 2 weeks after! I cant believe the pics when I look at them now I am pretty sure its not going to be like that this time, I didnt know how lucky I was!
With my first, I was back in my old jeans 2 weeks after but I was only 17 when I had my son at 23 it did not go that way at all infact I don't think I ever got back into my old jeans as I was lazy after and didn't really bother. I am hoping to really get into shape after this baby but I'm not going to kick myself if it takes a while. Enjoy your baby :-)
the day after i had zane i went for a bath and i almost cryed because my stomach was floating in the water! but after afew months my stomach didnt go back to normal but naturaly started to shrink. but if u do exercise then u will get ur figure back
Some people will skrink back within a few days but in reality it's more likely to take a few weeks to settle down. Remember, it took 9 months to make a pregnant body, so it won't go back to normal straight away. Enjoy your baby and worry about the jelly belly afterwards xxx
Ps.I think it took me about 3-4 weeks before I didn't look pregnant anymore xxx
they say it takes 6 weeks for your uterus to shrink back to normal size, tho really it never quite goes back to normal size. For me my belly was a ton smaller by 6 weeks postpartum. But the skin was still a bit looser than normal. That part took about 3 months or so- after that I was pretty much back to normal. But I never really was 100% as tight as before but very close. I had also lost all the weight but even so the tummy is changed a little
