    I know we all have things we hate about our post-baby bodies i.e. stretch marks, c-section scars, etc., but are there things you're grateful for after having your child?

    For example: A very special thanks to my son, I now have hips and I actually have boobs :haha: meaning I actually have a feminine figure

    I always thought my body would look totally different after a baby.
    however, somehow i gained 16 pounds literally all bump.
    now i'm 9 pounds under my pre-pregnancy weight and no longer have hips or a bum.
    don't know whether to contribute that to breastfeeding or not.
    but now instead of A cup boobs I have Ds! :thumbup:
    sweeeeeeet.

    maybe after i pop out another kid i'll start to notice body changes as James took it very easy on my bod.

    Hahaha Before Aiden I could barely fill a B-cup. Now, after giving birth, I am really filling and starting to bulge out of my C-cup...without nursing more than 2 weeks!!

    I could really go back to my normal DDD because these H's need to go!
    I am really satisfied with my new Mommy Bum though.

    Boobs that don't look like wet socks! Was a C, now a D... but it was all skin and no fullness, before. And more pronounced hips. ;)

    I'm just grateful for the fact that he didn't totally ruin my body! I'm back to my pre-pregnancy weight and my son is 5 weeks :)

    Yup! Adds more "sway" to your walk! ;)



    I'm actually ten pounds heavier then pre-pregnancy, but pre-pregnancy I was woefully under weight for my frame, due to stress in my life. Now I'm a healthy weight, again! I was down to a slim waist under a month of having LO, too. Was so proud of myself! :happydance:

    Oh yes, totally forgot about this one. It's nice that it's a little fuller lol :blush:

    Just thought with how much we want to go back to the way our bodies used to be, why not give a little recognition to the things we like :)

    Am I the only one whose boobs barely changed? :cry:
    Went from a 32B to a 36B.. woo. Hopefully this means they wont resemble two snooker balls in a sock when he's fully weaned off!

    Erm... lemme think... Oh, I know.. My arms are soo much more toned from lifting LO all the time.

    i hate thebig boobs! wnet from a small C to a DD borderline E. Im a runner, so huge boobies are not conducive to running and hurt so much when i try! Also, none of my old shirts fit, they wont button! Otherwise I feel like I've bounced back pretty quickly.

    Exactly the same for me. I was a twig like shape with "the body of a pre-pubescent boy" according to some "friends". Now I've got a nice round bum, visible hips (well..a hip, scoliosis make me only curve on one side!) and some (saggy) boobs! Saggy or not though at least it's something I can stuff in a bra! :haha: Plus pregnancy was the perfect excuse to finally gain weight. I've always been so tiny people thought I was doing drugs or anorexic, but really I just had a super fast metabolism and woke up super thin every morning despite going to bed with a pudgy belly every night. Having baby slowed down my metabolism a lot and I was able to keep weight on and give my body a chance to distribute it throughout my body. I've got some stretchies on my bum now, but I don't mind!
