    I hate my body i lost the baby weight then gained it again, am trying to loose it all again.

    Generally i just feel like a big fat blob (i had major self esteem issues pre floppy belly, post has made that worse and fobs friends comments even more so)

    I've had 2 kids and my tummy definitely has bounced back. No stretchmarks, no loose skin, looks pretty much the same as it did prior to having children.

    No its pretty wrecked!! On the plus size I'm a size 8 again yay.
    I've had two kids. I don't have any stretch marks at all but have a little "bulge" from torn abdominal muscles and some loose skin at the bottom. It has improved drastically with time and lots of physio but I doubt ill ever wear a bikini again.

    I've had 3 1/2 full term pregnancys and I'm pretty happy with my tummy area. It's definitely bounced back each time.
    I don't have any stretch marks and I don't have any excess skin. I have good genes I guess and have always been a size 6-8.
    I'm disappointed that for some reason I have 2 c-sec scars though. Not sure why they didn't go through the same one..? But other than that I'm pretty happy being a mum of 3 who can very comfortably wear a bikini. AND it's not I get a chance to say that proudly, so thank you!

    I thought this too, but I now have two, very close together. My old one is so faint though that you can barely see it

    My is a mess but not from the kids, It from gaining a massive amount of weight and then losing some of it (88 kgs) and than having a op at 19 weeks pg. It is a mass of loose skin and old stretch marks and than this scar. It was a 11cm long scar with a circle for new belly button when I was pg but now it's a big frown. The kids think it is just so funny. I think it's a reminder of how blessed I am that ds3 survived not so good odds. The rest is a testimony oh what I can do when I really try.
