Instead of the belittling comments some women throw around about your post baby body, I want to know about the flaws, but I want to hear the positive side to those flaws.
I have a c-section scar from both of my sons, without that scar neither of them would have made it into this world safely.
My boobs are four sizes bigger, hang four inches lower and are far from my pre pregnancy breasts, but they are great because I was lucky enough to be able to feed my boys and have have a great breastfeeding relationship with them

My boobs are the things that were impacted the most. I have some stretch marks, but they don't bother me. I think post baby body's are awesome

With DS I had an emergency c-section so I have the scar and the little belly flap. When i first saw the belly flap I cried and cried. I always had a little pot belly which I liked, I thought it looked womanly. Post birth it just looked yuck and deformed. I think it's ok to grieve your pre baby body. But I think most of us come through that and realise how fecking awesome our bodies are for doing the amazing job of growing our babies
I actually prefer how I look now, and not just because I've lost a fair bit of weight and am more toned, but because I have so much more respect for my body. It can do things, I can make it work better by training it and looking after it, and in return it will look after me. I sort of didn't 'get' that pre babies.

I weigh less than when I conceived, same as when I had my first GP appt, but look bigger IMO (and was big to begin with!).
My boobs have that lovely tear drop look at the moment (still bf 'ing), and they're MASSIVE. Sometimes I get a bit self-conscious about them, usually tho I haven't noticed too much change in them. Apart from my nipples having a more southerly point....,
My tummy is still all flopping n I have overhang - again, tho, I was bigger before baby; this would have to be what makes me still feel like I have the weight on.
My bum is flat!!!! I have NO curve whatsoever!!!!! I don't understand, considering I am over-weight....
And (TMI) I have a minor bladder prolapse that just makes me feel yuck.....
But the biggest boost to my self-esteem? That hubby can barely keep his hands off me, and keeps encouraging me to buy nice undies n bras. Problem is, my libido is rock bottom, so my heart n body really isn't up to DTD!

I don't know that it is a boo bio, but I can crack my pelvic bone these days.

My stomach is smaller (but currently saggier) than pre pregnancy but I don't care. I look better in clothes than before, and the 'damage' (saggy stomach, stretch marks, c sec scar) is sooo worth it for my beautiful daughter.
My boobs are softer, saggier and I think smaller but they're feeding my baby and the look of love on her face when she's feeding... Melts my heart

Is still (2.5 years later) carrying a few more pounds but oh well, id prefer to play with my kids than put them in a creche everyday to work out.
My boobs are 2 sizes bigger and alot flater but meh, i fed both my babies and am so proud of it.
I pee my pants sometimes when i cough or sneeze but who wouldnt after birthing two over 9lb babies!!
I think the sooner we embrace the post baby body the better our world will be. Ladies its NOT normal to have a six pack and 90% muscle 6 weeks after giving birth!!!!

My body is very deformed but more from weight gain and loss. I don't care about that. It has formed and grown 6 babies and it feed all 6 of them for over 10 years now. It has been a place where my kids know they can climb up and sit on my lap even at 19 years old. My beautiful dd2 (11) is always telling me that I am comfortable not like daddy.

My boobs have suffered terribly, another one who's feet changed size/shape, my c-section scar still irritates me sometimes (gets kinda itchy and sore), the cut from my episiotomy still bothers me.
But it is what it is and I wouldn't change it, they are all part of the journey of my kids.
