I am 2 Months PP and I just cant take it anymore... I feel disgusting... my belly just sags its so gross... I look 25 weeks pregnant ... I am so depressed... and I barely have time to clean my house w/ my son let alone to work out. I just cant stand myself anymore I want to cry so bad. My SO took a pic of me sitting the other day and sent it to me and I started bawling... like how gross can I possibly be... And I had hyperemesis really bad and like lost all my muscle from being bed ridden that now I just sag everywhere. :(

Its only been 2 months. I takes time to get your body back and it will never be the exactly the same as it was before. Your body is still healing just start slow eat healthy and try and go for walks get active again.

Try to remind yourself that you just had a child. You created a life. That in itself is beautiful. And get exercising!

Don't be so hard on yourself! It took 40 weeks to create that little life, you can't expect your body to bounce back to "normal" in just 8! If you have steps in your house, start running up and down them! And summer's coming, thank goodness, so you'll be able to get out and walk with your little one all the time! It will get easier, it will get better, you'll find a routine, you'll find time to exercise, but you'll also have to be creative and accept the new "normal" that your baby has created with your body. Your belly will never be the same. Your boobs will never be the same (if you're bf'ing). Those are sacrifices WORTH making!

I went through a big shell shocker when I realized I will never be a size 5 or 7 again. I weight 5 lbs less then I did before o got pg with my son. But its my hips you can see my hip bones but they wont shrink back to pre pregnant size... it suchs but when I look at my son and see that sweet face n unconditional love ill settle haven to buy a bigger pant size :0) you'll be ok momma just keep your head up :0)
