    So jealous of these amazing body's! You all look beautiful
    I'm sure it's a little different for everyone but for me my tummy did kinda 'deflate' over the first week or two, it was pretty amazing actually. The first day or two it feels like jelly and pretty saggy then it starts shrinking.

    I also had bright red stretch marks with DD1 and over 12-18 months they just faded and faded. With DD2 I could see my previous stretch marks, they were silvery, but I didn't get any new ones. It's kinda hard to tell I had them now, it's more obvious on my sides.

    I can't believe I'm going to do this!! Unlike other BHubbers I am not proud of my mummy tummy. It is completely stretched and covered in stripes. I think about it almost every day. Whilst I am going to get a tummy tuck to get rid of it - I feel I need to work on accepting my appearance anyway.

    I have also lost 25kg with 8-10 more to go and then I'll get my surgery. Logically I know I should be happy. I just think my ex has played a part in stuffing up my self confidence in regards to my body....

    Anyway - this is me
    You know what you look fabulous I don't know if there is anything there to tuck! If you lost another 10 I don't think there would be much of you left. I wish you more confidence in your body

    Thank you for your kind words. I know it's an issue I really need to conquer. Crazy thing is I'm now a size 10 but I had no body issues when I was a size 16 and (what I thought was) happily married. I dream of a day where I can stop being so judgmental of myself.

    This is exactly what I thought! I am in my mid-twenties, and I haven't had any babies yet and you still have less of a tummy than me!!

    I think you look awesome!

    This is from a distance


    And this is close up when I bend over, the evidence I have of carrying two babies (4.4kg & 4.2kg)

    You all look awesome! Once the baby has finished feeding I'll try take one of mine (but I have no mirror! Hmmm)

    This I kinda agree with. SOOOO many women complain about their tum's and actually do not even look as though they had kids. I have a relatively good tummy. I use to have a 6 pack and fully defined so it was a shock to most to see my tum after two kids. I am not ashamed(but wont post due to my distinctive tattoo on it).

    Women complain around me then I show mine and their face kinda distorts at it but they try hard to say wow that looks fine. I know this is being positive about our bodies I just do not think that majority of those (not only here) who say I am proud of my mummy body actually have the need to feel ashamed by society standards as they would be considered "normal" not "mummy tummy"

    This is me 13 weeks PP. The stretchmarks are courtesy of DD2, I never had them with DD1!
