    I voted ‘I would want my pre-pregnancy body back’ but really It’s just my stomach, the rest of my body has barely changed.

    I hate my post-pregnancy stomach. I have got stretch marks that start under my boobs and end where my pants sit, they cover every single inch of my tummy (I’m pretty sure I have more stretch marks than regular skin on my tummy). Some of them are almost 1cm thick and they are so ugly.

    Because of all the stretching I also have a lot of loose skin and I have a big pouch on my tummy of loose skin. I have a really nice tummy underneath, I do lots of ab work, but it’s all  hidden under that effing loose skin.

    @newbabybee:  FH still thinks my body is great, it’s like he can’t see the stretch marks. Guys don’t notice these things like we women do, I think he wishes I had my pre-pregnancy confidence back.

    I definitelt think my kids were worth it, but it doesn’t make it suck any less. I am so insanely jealous of women whose bodies don’t change at all after having kids.
