Is there anything that is sucking for you now that we are PP??

For me it is bras and undies..LOL. I went looking for a new bra the other day and the girls have grown so big the place did not have my size then i looked around for some undies and my butt has also gotten so big i am stuck with the ugly solid color granny looking panties. I am sure my bras will also be in those ugly solid colors to if i can ever find one that fits. So anyone else going through this to? I hope i am not alone!

Yup!! Altho Walmart has some ok looking bikini underwear they sell in packages. Unfortunately, my sexy underwear is still in the top drawer just sitting there. Can't wait til I can wear those again. Makes me feel more feminine. As for my bra, I made sure to get 3 nursing bras in a larger size than what I was wearing at the time. (Got mine at Babies R Us- 36E) And now I fit them perfectly. But I dunno if you're nursing or not, so I 'd suggest Lane Bryant too if you aren't. My sister got some very nice looking bras after she had her son and they fit her well.

Not being able to have sex! That would be my main complaint. And my boobs are too big for pre preg shirts and my old jeans are just a little too tight. I need new clothes!

Maybe an odd thing to think sucks postpartum, but....

It sort of sucks being postpartum!
I really liked being pregnant. I loved how I looked. I miss my big belly.
I wish there was some way to have my little Alexander here and at the same time just kind of freeze-frame me at ~35 weeks pregnant. I think I'd like to have the best of both worlds.

Me and my bff (who has a 4 month old baby) were recently talking about this. How as much as we love having our LOs here, we also miss being pregnant! Good to know we aren't the only ones

I don't miss being pregnant this time at all and Im so in love with Idan so I know Im done done having babies. What sucks is being tired and not feeling like I own my time or body. I love nursing but hate my huge boobs and not being able to look or feel pretty.

I am so upset, I got some nursing bras that are very pretty from Nordstrom, they are just too tight in the band! They fit great standing but don't work while sitting feeding a baby.. I have to be perfectly up right. I didn't wear 2 of them so I will return them. I am hoping that when I lose a bit of weight they will fit much better. Now I need to find something else. Not having a well fitting bra or nursing tank (the target ones are crap, the elastic band rolls up b/c it's so small) the only things fitting well are the overnight bras I got at JcPenney.

I just wish I had more clothes that fit at home besides sweat pants and PJs, I guess it doesn't matter since I get spit up on every once in a while but I miss wearing nice clothes. I hope as soon as I hit 6 weeks that I can lose 10lbs quickly to be able to get into clothing. I am dreading having to job hunt, I'll need to buy something that fits well *sigh* I wish I knew someone close by who could help me find something that fits well

I totally miss my DH! It has been a LONG time since we have DTD and really enjoyed it (without a big belly) I also just miss being able to snuggle with him, Rilyn takes up all of my time right now!
I cannot wait to start exercising to get rid of the flabby belly and getting a little more sleep at night! I am also anxious to have my body back just for me! I still feel like it is just there for her, which is completely fine, but a year is a long time to not have your own body! I love that I can provide breastmilk for her but I really do not miss being pregnant and I will not miss feeding either!

I really can't wait to be pre Madison body of course it will not be the same but at least I would feel better about myself. I am pre Myles but its not good enough I miss my belly only time I have felt good and didn't worry.

Oh and I can't wait to fit in my bras before I ever become pregnant I went shopping right before I got pregnant with Madison and got 5 new pretty bras and maybe wore them once!

I'm new to the PP thing but the cramps, engorged boobs, leaking and stitches hurting all suck. Oh and the lack of sleep thing.
