this is what i look like almost 4 months after the birth of my son. i gained about 45 pounds while i was pregnant and stopped working out altogether. i was in really good shape before i got pregnant…i weighed about 140 or so and i am 5’6, but i worked out 5 days a week and had a lot of muscle tone….i quickly learned that is goes away quickly once you stop exercising. :) i am down to 152 right now (as of the pictures) but my pants are a lot more than 12 pounds away from fitting me..,.funny how that works :) anyway, i have started working out and i am eating really well so I hope to be back to my old size within a few months….but i’m being realistic. i got a few new stretch marks on my hips while i was pregnant and a couple on my inner thighs. i gained almost all my weight in my butt and thighs…i didnt look very pregnant at 9 months…people kept telling me that i only looked 5-6 months pregnant….but my normally bubble butt was EXTREMELY HUGE! and these thighs….well, lets not even talk about them! it was for a good cause though. i have the cutest, sweetest, most wonderful little baby boy in the whole world!

Hi…I totally know what you mean about the extra “junk in the trunk”! I gained most of my weight in my butt and thighs just like you (I posted here a few weeks ago – “The new body of a first time mom”). I think you look fantastic, especially for 4 months PP! Hang in there, those old pants will fit again soon (at least that’s what I keep telling myself…hehe) :)
You honestly look awesome! Are you sure you are only 4 months PP? ;)
You look fantastic! What a pretty post-baby belly you have. I think I related to your pics because we are shaped similarly—larger on the bottom half, but relatively tiny on top. Seeing your pics and thinking how great you look is a good step for me to see the beauty when I look in the mirror too! Thanks for sharing!
Guy again but I think you look great in the back and the front.
you look AMAZING!!! i would kill to be twice your size!!!
You look very small for 152lbs…150 is my target weight and I am 5’8. You look great…you don’t look like you were pregnant at all except for your scar. Which healed very nicely!
I always think I look as good as someone with your body shape/size…then I look in the mirror, I even took a picture for this site and realize I don’t look good at all. Plus I am VERY pale so I can see every single strech mark bright as day!
I am really working on it now….so hopefully I can be happy with my body someday.
I just hope you are happy with yours, you really look great!
