before i fell pregnant i lost weight and was a UK 10 i was sooooo happy! then i found out i was pregnant, again soooo happy! but i was a UK 10 for about 1 month then the weight crept on! when my boy was born he was a whopping 9lbs 12oz born by c section! so obviously my body had stretched out to the max when i was 6 months pregnant people thought i was due anyday! and with the c section my stomach muscle were ruined! has anyone else been in this situation and come out the other end!? i dont want to be a fatty! :(

I have 2 kids, my son turns 5 in a few months and I have a 3 yr old daughter. My body will never be the same as it was before I was pregnant.
Before I had my son I was a UK/AUS size 10, luckily I stayed the same size during both my pregnancies as well as after. What I didn't account for was the way the skin on my stomach had stretched (even though I was very very lucky that even after 2 kids I have hardly any stretch marks) and the way, especially after my daughter my body shape has changed.

Everyone gains weight during pregnancy, I gained 14kg with my son who was estimated to be a 9-10lb baby, he was premmie so luckily I didn't have to deliver a huge baby. I'm only 5'3 and a bit and my daughter was big enough at 8lb2.

Loosing weight can be done, you've done it once so you know you can do it again.
I go to the gym, I know it's not for everyone but I enjoy it. I am now a size 8 but my stomach is still loose and stretchy and my hips are wider than they were before.
Some things you can't change some you can. At a size 10 you are far from being a fatty.
