What?? I think a lot of women talk about those things!

My hair definitely fell out after my 1st pregnancy...and i think got a bit thinner over all but other than that the more long term ones didn't really happen to me. Maybe because i was younger? Hopefully i'll be so lucky again.

The thing no one really talked about for me was the scarring of the C section and how much it would change my body. My mom had three but, she had a vertical incision and therefore didn't look anything like me.

Skinny or heavy, I've always had a pooch of some sort at the bottom of my stomach. Add a bikini like cut which heals and "tucks" your stomach down some, and it changes your whole shape and how you wear pants, etc. I'd heard of most of these things. My feet got bigger after my daughter and I also got pregnancy mask even though I'm very fair.

yes to all of them, lol......but not right away. I did leak milk for years after my first but that was about it. I was 21 with him. My body shape was definitely better after having about 3kids, lol...I was WAY to skinny before my first and even after the first 3 kids......I kept 5lbs from each baby, giving me the ultimate body! After my fifth, I was 39, all of the other issues kicked in though, lol. Bladder, vagina, hair, (no leaky boobs thanks to a double mastectomy after #4) night sweats, and my new pouch that I carry always.....dying to see after this one and no more will ever come out of my body, if the pouch leaves though, lol
momma of 8 beautiful children now. Most recent is Jerry Jr. born 11/19/12 at 37wk, 7lbs 6oz and 19.5inches and Baby Reymundo born 10/7/13 at 35w6d, 6lbs 7oz, 19.5 inches. Momma of 5 angels. New siggy to come!
