How are those post baby bodies? Have you healed well?

I had my 3rd c section and while the area healed it is completely numb. After my tubal, my body went into panic mode. I had an almost AF this month with spotting for 6 days but no real gushes like I'm used to. Hoping it rights itself soon. I am taking birth control for the hormones.

As for my stomach, it seems as though my stomach has formed to my pants. The lower half is nice and flat but the top is really pudgy. I am working on getting that fixed. I went out and bought a wrap to try and tighten it up a little bit. I can't think of what they are called but they are supposed to give them to you in the hospital after birth.

I think I'm doing well! I have been working out and feel really good about myself, so that is a huge plus. I'm still 5 pounds over my pre-baby #1 weight, but that is good...I was a bit underweight then anyway. I still wish my stomach was a little tighter...the muscles are tight, but there is some flabby skin on top that I don't like. I think I'm just going to have to give it more time.

My AFs are still pretty brutal and long...I have my pap scheduled for July and will be asking questions then if AF is still being to mean to me.

I'm almost back to my pre-preg body. I have about 6-7 pounds to go. I don't feel gross and out of shape anymore which is making me much happier these days.

I'm back to pre-pregnancy weight, but I'd like to lose 7 more pounds to get to my pre-kid weight. My stomach is still soft, but it's getting better. I can't wait for the weather to get nicer so we can be more active outside.

I'm doing good. I have about 5-10 more pounds to lose to be at my ideal weight, but am about 6 pounds under my pre-pregnancy weight. I feel good about my body when fully clothed... it definitely shows the wear and tear of 4 pregnancies, and two full term deliveries though

I'm only about 4 lbs heavy but still look like poop naked. I have done nothing to fix it so I have no excuse or room to cry about it

I am still healing and the weight loss has tapered off for me. I need to work out but am hectic with everything with my mom. It's more of a squishy thing than a weight thing, I just don't feel confident yet..all in good time :-) I'll definitely be joining some fitness classes once I get back home and will be looking forward to that time.
