Quoting Evan & Max's Mama:
I really appreciate this thread. It's more realistic then the PP bodies thread.
I could have used this 2months ago.
Quoting Jeanine *:
i have strectch marks all around my belly button and my sides i weigh about 140 now and my pre weight was 112 and when i was prego i weighed about 192... i feel very fat...cant find any pants that fit... WAH! i wanna cry
Haha I'm excited to see what mine is going to look like. I've never had very much of a belly pre- pregnancy, but I've always had a bigger build, I got pregnant at 170 and I'm 180 seven months in. So we'll see!

It's mostly in your genes. I didn't get any stretch marks BUT I moisturized daily with Palmer's Cocoa Butter w/vitamin E and I drank a ton of water. Drink at least 2 liters of water a day. If your skin is hydrated, it retains elasticity. FYI try to start a new topic instead of dragging up one from 08. ;)
Hey ya'll is this thread still alive? I am 2 weeks and 4 days postpartum with baby #2. I gained 35lbs with this baby, 45 with last baby. Before baby #1 I was 150. I lost all the baby weight by 4 months pp.. and I BF for 6 weeks with him. THis time I've done portion control sooner this time than before, and Im BF for 6 weeks. I weighed 160 Prepregnancy this time, was 193 before delivery and am now down to 170. I'd like to get to 160 and then eventually 145. I plan on walking to lose the weight (thats what I did with LO#1) as soon as I turn 6 weeks pp. Until then, lots of water, portion control and lots of Bf baby!! Ill post pictures tonight!
even though I'm pregnant now.. I hope somehow this thread comes back to life~

This looks like me but a little less. Did it fade?
