The last time I posted on here was about 4 years ago..I had just had my first baby girl 5 months earlier. Before getting pregnant, I was a fit 5’5, 125 lbs. After she was born, my belly still looked like a small basketball. I had no stretchies, but I knew I wasn’t going anywhere without a blousy shirt. When I got pregnant with girl #2, I weighed about 140 lbs. I had her via c section (as I did with my first), and swore this time I would get my body back. No matter how hard I worked, it didn’t happen. I exercised, wore one of those stupid binders that some people swear by, ate healthy.. I felt (and still do feel) guilty that I have these amazing, healthy daughters that I love so very much, but I cannot come to terms with my belly. Saggy boobs, whatever..I can wear a better bra. Stretchies, got those during the second pregnancy, but who cares? Belly, like an even bigger basketball..horrendous! Even my belly button STILL sticks out, and my younger daughter just turned 1! I also still have a faint line all the way down my belly. I think I could live with a saggy baby belly…but mine is firm, has a HUGE diastasis separation, and has a deformed outie belly button. I wish we could afford a tummy tuck. I am glad my husband loves me just the same, but my self esteem sucks. I also worked SO hard to lose all my baby weight, and now that I’m back to 125 lbs I feel like I look worse that I did at 140..because the rest of me shrunk, but not my belly. Ugh. I just don’t get it. I have a good friend who gained like 90 lbs during her pregnancy, and lost it with NO effort whatsoever within a couple of months. It’s just depressing.
