I've seen random posts here of different girls talking about how pregnancy changed their body with their previous pregnancies, what is a few of the post pregnancy changes you saw and what do you dislike the most?!?!

FTM- what are your excitement or fears with the changes happening to your body?





Here's my example. Some changes post pregnancy to my body was my white stretch marks, my c/s scar and my belly button never returned to being an inny.

The stretch marks are nearly invisible. No one notices the c/s scar unless i point it out. My belly button is what I hate! I hope it sinks back in this time.

My DF loves my "new" boobs...however I regret all the times I wished for bigger boobs, because now the girls aren't looking as perky as they used to. Oh and I'm also getting used to my belly making my butt look smaller lol.

My only real change was I carry weight differently now. I got back to pre-pregnancy weight, but I carry more in my stomach and thighs than I did before. I didnt get stretch marks or anything.

My boobs were already big and they got bigger! Didn't need that lol! They have stayed that way even after weaning. If they get even bigger this time, I'm going to cry!

I returned to pre preg weight by about 3 months thanks to breastfeeding which doesn't do it for everyone but worked for me. But then after weaning, I gained back 10 pounds because I kept eating the same calories...oopsie lol!

The main body change isn't visible to others. I have laxity of ligaments and tissues now that have caused me to have a partial uterine prolapse. Basically, things are reaaaaalllly low. It doesn't affect intercourse or cause me discomfort or anything, but it's definitely there. Some people have it much much worse so I can't complain THAT much.

My boobs SHRUNK after my milk dried up

and i stayed 5 pounds under my pre preg weight. i think mainly because i stopped drinking sodas while pregnant and never got back into drinking any alcohol.

Well this is going to be quite graphic, and y'all must be skinny minnies compared to me. I was WAY smaller the first go-round, but I'm very solid and have never been itty bitty. My first pregnancy I gained 60 pounds, and afterward? All that belly that was full of baby slid down and hung down in front of my my lady bits. GROSS! OH GROSS!!!! I was TOTALLY not prepared for that....

Well, I gained 50 lbs with my first 2, 35 with my last. I always get back down to a size 2 but the skin gets so stretched out that my belly is never the same. I could care less about stretch marks but the loose skin sucks. My belly button is messed up too! I guess it's still an innie but much bigger, ew.
Also, my boobs basically disappeared. I was a decent b/c. Got REALLY big with my first. I just went through my maternity stuff and I had 38 DD!!! They look so big! Anyway, by the time I was done nursing my 3rd, I am BARELY an A. That is the worst. Right now mine have grown this pregnancy to about a small B and I love it. I wish I could keep them (sniff sniff). I totally didn't expect to lose my boobs. The other stuff, sure, fine whatever. But dammit!! I put those things to work for basically 3 solid years, and maybe they just can't take it anymore, lol.

My hips got wider. I always went down to my prepregnancy weight, and my pants fit everywhere else, but I couldn't get them zipped. It took me a while to find jeans that actually fit me. lol

I wouldn't say I really have any "physical" differences, other than my c section scar (no stretch marks, boobs went back to how small they were before, all that jazz...)
Now, as for health...
My thyroid was normal pre-DD, but after it is all out of whack and underactive. Also, I have no feeling from my belly button to my csection scar, basically i tested it out with my hair straightener, and I could barely feel the heat of it... pinching, does nothing...
I developed a form of IBS after DD, basically I go like crazy for a day then don't go for more than a week at a time...
Im sure there is more Im just not thinking right right now!!

I think you would have rather had the physical stuff!!! Yikes. Hopefully this pregnancy doesn't change anything else, or evern better, puts some stuff back to normal.

If it makes you feel better one of my first DDC's group members, her 2nd c/s caused her favorite 'lady parts' to go nunb

I went up a full size in shoes and had to discard my whole collection of shoes after my first kid. Fortunately, they did not get any bigger after #2.

Nothing really. I have had bp issues since my first pregnancy, but high bp runs in my family anyways so that was destined to happen one way or another. I actually got to my largest weight after my miscarriage in 2009 from being depressed. I was bigger last year than I was 9 months with either of my children. Thankfully I lost 20 lbs before getting pregnant this time, but I am still larger than I was at 9 months with both my boys.
