    Anyway, the scar is still visible after 2,5 years, but not too bad. No stitches were used on the outside. Only steri-strips.
    Saying this, I still will always be very aware of the scar being there as it still gets sensitive and itchy on warm days. It took me a year of pep talks to finally accept my scar as being ok. And yes, without the scar, DS wouldn't be here right now.

    yeah mine was still like that at 2.5 years. it seems to have only settled down after pregnancy with katelyn. at 1 year it still prickled in the shower. though whenever the middies saw my scar they kept telling me how nice and neat it is, how well healed it looks, how well it was done so maybe that helps being told maybe half dozen different people how nice my scar looks. lol. its also gone flat since having katelyn. I think mine ****ed me off because it may not have been necessary had the hospital staff been half-way competent.

    Also, some people don't want to be skinny, but don't have a choice.

    yep, I'll put my hand up as one that has other scars. Beside the csec scar I have a huge scar on the back of my head - it takes up pretty much the whole lower right hand quarter of the back of my head. Hair can't grow on it. With my hair down it's fairly hidden but not getting to wear my hair up in public (unless I want to be constantly stared at) sucks!!

It doesn't say show me your red firey stretchmarks and overhang.
    I don't know, it doesn't say "Show me your perfect, stretch mark free, tight ab bellies". It just says "Show me your tummy after you've had kids". I took that as celebrating ALL tummies. Not just the perfect looking ones. And even some people who have bellies that are more perfect than I had as a five year old have admitted they feel bad about how they look.

    I think the point is to celebrate ALL tummies, because no matter how they look they've all done something amazing

    I can't post my tummy. Even at about 6kg lighter than I am now when I was the happiest I've ever been with my body, I still felt like crying when I saw my 'baby apron' in the mirror. I wish I had the confidence to love it for what it is but I don't think I ever will. I'm so jealous of women that can love their body just for what it looks like and seeing people that don't have magazine perfect bodies in here makes me feel a lot better. I'm NORMAL!

    So thankyou to all the ladies that have been brave enough to post their pictures. Maybe I will be too one day

    My post baby body is better, healthier and more toned than my pre baby body. I haven't done anything particular to get it though.... Maybe the difference was picking up, running after a baby and toddler every day. I was only a size 8 pre baby though.

    My boobs have gone from a DD to a C but I'm happy with that. My pre baby boobs gave me unwanted attention and were a pain when clothes shopping haha

    The first pic is when DS was 9mths old the second is me as of 5 mins ago

    Is there any way to get rid of overhang? Like do sit ups and ab exercises work? I have major overhang after only one bubba (he was over 9 pounds if that makes any difference lol)

    HOw old is bubba? Situps don't really do anything! Lots of cardio and resistance traning is your best bet

    Sit ups will strengthen the abs but to burn excess fat you nees tl get the heartrate up. At first you'll just be burning off the glucose store so you need to keep the heartrate up for 30 minutes + to start burning fat. Afterwards a protein shake that's low in carbs will keep you feeling full and help the muscles repair themselves.
