    It's funny weighing exactly the same I keep thinking I've lost weight because I feel better about my body. but the scales haven't changed. (and yes they aren't broken. Jaspers still the correct weight on them)

    Isn't it funny how we have this idea of what's "expected" or normal. I don't have stretchmarks and weigh less now than before I got pregnant the first time.

    For me its not genetics, it was looking after myself post pregnancy. However I've had people argue here that I must have good genes or that I mustn't have got very big to start, um, I added 40% of my weight to what I was carrying.

    None of us know enough about others here regarding what we eat, how we exercise, the percentage of our day we spend on our bums watching tv or on the net. There are so many variables as to how we get to where we do in our lives.

    This is why judgement can be problematic

    This is me at the beach today with DS2, had just taken mr sleepy head out of the ergo so I look a wee bit creased from that!

    There are plenty of things about my body that aren't great (I have allergies to a number of foods, my babies so far have had to come out the trapdoor, endless problems with my teeth etc) but we eat extremely well and look after ourselves and I'm proud that I can still wear a bikini confidently post kids

    I think everyone looks beautiful. Our bodies made our babies and that is priceless

    Just to ruin the thread and pls do not quote. It isnt staying.


    I am not proud, i hate it, i always have.

    The vertical scar is one i have had since i was 3 days old, the horizontal one near my lower abdomine is one i've had since i was 12 months old.

    Its not pretty so if you want to see pretty stop looking now

    What beautiful bellies!!

    I love looking at these pics and thinking that maybe I can achieve a toned, slimmer belly in the future But I'm also proud of war wounds too

    I gained 35kg during my pregnancy 2,5 years ago. I lost most of it during breastfeeding and also during chemotherapy.
    I have no stretchies as DS was delivered at 35,5 weeks, so I didn't get to experience the big growth-spurt in the last 4 weeks of gestation.

    I do have some small little scars from my recent appendix removal and also from my gall bladder removal. My belly button looks like it's been fed through a mince making machine. Keyhole surgery is great if you just have the 1 procedure. More than 1 and your belly button will never look the same again
    This is the reason why I did not make a full front shot of my belly.
    Oh and my GP told me last week that I need to gain 5-10kg of weight in a sensible and responsible way. So no gorging on Mars bars Will have to see a dietitian.

    Nemmi:

    I assume these scars weren't put there just for sh!ts and giggles, but for a lifesaving function instead. So I would be damned proud of them if I were you. Without those scars, you might not have been around

    This is my tummy now at 13 weeks after the birth of DD2. It's a lot rounder than it was and I still have quite a few stubborn kgs to lose to get back to pre pregnancy size that I will have to work very hard to lose. I didn't get any stretch marks on my tummy but my hips copped lots of deep red ones.

    I completely agree!

    My sister, who has not spoken to me for 6 years now, has recently moved back from Europe and is currently living with my parents. She refuses to see me and DS and was secretly hoping that pregnancy had made me as heavy as she is (she's never had kids though).
    She actually caught a glimpse of me a few weeks ago and went off towards my mother. Yelling at her about how lucky I was to be so tall (6'0) and skinny. OFCOURSE I lost my weight due to chemotherapy and not to breastfeeding and looking after myself. Whatever
    Before receiving chemo I was 74kg. Now nearly 6 months after finishing chemo I weigh 65kg. So this course of chemo didn't make my weightloss too extreme. Plus I make sure I eat well as I need all the energy I can get to be able to run after my super hyper energetic 2yo
    Anyway, I'd rather be a healthy weight without chemo than underweight with chemo.
