What's been the hardest thing for you to get used to with your post-partum body? Is there anything you actually like more?

My boobs of course! Although they shrunk a bit because I've been losing weight, but they were ginormous!



ETA: The thing I hate most is my stomach. I can't seem to get it flat again!

Well I'm a bit lighter than I was pre-pregnancy so I'm not complaining. Yes my tummy is softer and a bit wrinkly but I was never into midriff tops anyway so I don't care. I LOVE my boobs. Ok they hang lower, one is slightly bigger than the other. I'm not going to go into boob modelling or anything so that's ok. The are slightly larger and softer, they've nourished a child for nearly 3 years so they're awesome.

Women's bodies are amazing.

Natalie with both my kids the hair loss began around 4.5/5 months. I think it evened out by 7 months with my daughter and then it was just a pain to have the baby hairs. My son is just 6 months now and I'm loosing quite a bit still. :( I hope it stops soon!

Seriously, I have never been so obsessed with my body that I even NOTICED how big or small my boobs have become or any of that jazz. All I cared about was my baby and loving being a mom. Never understood how anybody can even tell that one boob hangs lower than the other. For some of us, being a mom IS the first time we actually felt beautiful in our entire lives.

Everyone hates me for it :P but my body didn't really change from pregnancy. I had stretch marks, tummy fat and weird boobs from before XP I didn't really put on any weight or anything with either of my children. My stretch marks extended a little on my tummy, but I didn't get any new ones or anything :P
I'm waiting till after my child bearing years to really get down to business and become a MILF XD

I will say though, I never felt as good about my body as when I'm very pregnant (last 2-3 months) and I'm never happier with my boobs as the first 6 months after giving birth XD
I think that's been the hardest part XD Loosing the perky *milk boobs* as my kids get a little older and stop nursing XD

Nothing unexpected, just that I had finally got back into my pre-pregnancy clothes when I found out I was pregnant again.

Oh where to begin!?! The hair loss thing is really upsetting. Does anyone know when this should stop?? My LO just turned 4 months old and I feel like I shed a small "Cousin It" every time I take a shower! Not a fan of my thighs now either!!

For the belly, I think until breastfeeding stops it is super difficult to get rid of. I do not find that I overindulge or really eat that much and yet my belly remains. I'll only start worrying once I'm done breastfeeding. Providing my baby with food and having energy to play with him is my main priority!
But it would feel nice to feel less like a snack bar and more like a sexy woman :)

I was a cow during my pregnancies! I gained SO much weight. I finally just got back down to my normal 125 self. But as I said have a belly and saggy boobs HA!

lol. The downside is that my pregnancies are awful. Karma has its ways of getting back at you. I'm sure that I think of it all differently if I gained weight during my pregnancies.

I got a waist after having my daughter. I wasn't too thrilled with the bigger boobs. After my son, I was down 25 lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight, and I've actually been able to maintain that. My stomach for the first time ever is starting to not have a weird indent/crease along my belly button line (I had it even when I was 120). Despite loosing hair, my hair is still pretty thick compared to before.

I really came out of pregnancy lucky.

My LO is 5 months and I have been losing my hair for about a month now. It happened with my first and I know it will get better but it is so upsetting.

Also I am starting to get upset about my boobs. My milk production has evened out and so now after a feed I can see how saggy they will be once breastfeeding is done. I used to have a nice perky B before kids. My hubby says he doesnt care and a good bra does wonders but I still find it depressing.

The only thing I do like is my hips. I'm a small women and so having a small waist with wide hips looks good. Also i now dont have to buy jeans in the juniors section. At 28 I'm really not into the teenage styles anymore Lol
