I am not sure if its permanent but I know it is for all of the extra blood to safely pass through without causing complications. It may partially shrink back down but it wouldn't make much sense medically for someones heart to completely shrink back every time especially for those with 3+ pregnancies

This.
Although I stayed a size 34 around, my cup size went from B to C and stayed that way.
Wondering if it will go from C to D this time around.

Also, the increase in lung capacity is what contributes to chest expansion as well.

Ugh... I don't even want to think of how bad my legs would be burning let alone my poor back after that! I only have a 16lb baby too! I've been exercising though so that I can carry him around more. Figured out my mei tai's issue so that helps alot

He won't let me wrap him anymore. But yeah it sucks. My husband carries him as often as he can but he's not always around. The whole back pain does suck. And this brat girl I have likes to sit on my nerve so my leg gives out sometimes. That can get scary. Fortunately I'm only hauling him down and up once a dy usually. The rest is just taking out the dog to go potty.

Just think... it takes 9 months to put on the weight.... so 9 months to loose the weight.



Just start walking a lot.

Quoting Little Richard's mommie!:" i am on my phone so sorry for any mistakes. Well i know its only been almost 7weeks since i had my son ... [snip!] ... likely going to have to get a new dress :'(((. any ideas of easy work outs would be great to know! TIA. this just is sad :("


I know how you feel except my story is a little worse I think! Lol My husband and I were supposed to get married in Oct '10, I purchased my dress in Nov '09.. We did not end up getting married on that date.. And I got pregnant in Dec '10.. I had my son in Spet '11 and we FINALLY got married on March 20th 2013.. So my son was 18 months old.. And guess what, I was still able to wear my original dress.. AFTER having to add 3 1/2 in seams to both sides!! Eeek! That's right I had a whooping 7 in gain even after my son was 18 months old :( Ugh, I really felt like shit.. I am wanting so badly to get my ass in check, and lose all this weight I have gained!

Aww :( I am sorry that would have made me sad to, but I agree I may have to do that to my dress as well and it's pretty far from zipping maybe adding a good 4 or 5 inches may make it work lol. I need to work all of this weight off.
