    I think it's pretty understandable feeling like that. I know I can and will get my body into awesome shape again - I did it last time (eventually), but right now it's still pretty horrible to look at and no amount of telling myself "it looks like this because of the amazing task it did (growing a baby)" makes me feel any better about it.

    I got back to pre preg weight by 8 weeks, however it's the 8 years worth of IVF weight that I can't shift. Each cycle I seemed to put on a kg or 2.

    I put on 12.5kg and lost it by 4 weeks after birth (c-section). My lower belly is bigger though and hangs more than it used to (i wasn't toned pre-preg either), so I'll be buying new jeans soon!

    Just waiting until my 6 week checkup next week to get the ok from my Ob to start doing some exercises to strengthen and tone my tummy.

    I was pre preg weight 2 days after having bub, and dropped a further 3 kg that week. I was awfully sick the first 20 weeks with OHSS and morning sickness. I only gained about 8kg the whole time, and bub was almost 4 of that. I had a PPH and was very anaemic after birth and that combined with breastfeeding I think is why it happened so fast. Bub is 3 weeks now and I've not lost any more weight. My body shape is def different, besides my belly that I can tell still needs time to recover I'm actually happier with it. Before pregnancy I was very unhappy with myself. I wasn't too bad but I def had a little extra weight. I think pregnancy has taught me to love and appreciate my body a little more.

    After my first I lost all the baby weight plus another 12kg by 6 months after birth. I was slightly overweight when I got pregnant though.

    I'm now just over 5 months post birth with number two and I'm 4.5kg over pre-preg weight (I put on 28kg!) and am almost back into my size 8 jeans.
