My Body After Two Kids (Anonymous)

July 29, 2013

I’m 37, and my girls are aged 5 and 2.

I was worried with each of my pregnancies that I would find it hard to get back in shape; or that my body would be radically changed. You go through so many changes when you’re pregnant that it’s hard to see how you will ever go back to normal. But, I came out of it ok. I try to exercise whenever I can, even it its just taking the girls for a walk or doing sit ups in front of TV. I used to go to weights class but had such bad pubis symphasis pain that I don’t want to do the heavy squats and lunges anymore; I feel a twinge of the pain in my pelvis whenever I have to out my back into pushing something, like a heavy door or piece of furniture. With my second girl I had a caesarian, I have a small ridge just above my pubic bone but it is nothing too bad. For various medical reasons I will have an elective section if we have a third child, and I wonder what the effect of a second section will do to my tummy.

I used this site when I was pregnant to seek reassurance, and I hope this give some reassurance back to other mums. I’ve included a picture of me the day before I went into labour with my second.

Apart from the pelvic pain, the main change has been to my breasts. They are not as large or full as they were – I feel like the bloom has gone off them! I breastfed noth my girls til they were two though, so some change is to be expected.

    You truly look great, so feminine. And that pregnancy picture – pure beauty. I wish I had one like it, instead I felt so fat and didn’t take any pics. One of my biggest regrets.

    You look great, I had two c sections and have that little ridge as well. It’s nice to see its normal. I feel like it makes my stomach look so gross but seeing you I feel better about mine because you look beautiful.
    And I love the preggo picture :)

    I had a breast like yours before having children and I wished it would still look as beautiful as yours. Mine have become tiny and flat. There is nothing left from your wonderful shape. I am so jealous! Be happy looking so gorgeous.
