You look great!

It will shrink down a lot in the next few weeks.

I had the same concerns with both my pregnancies and ended up just fine as well. I drank lots of water and continued exercising, and I used sweet almond oil every single day. I know there’s no proof it works to avoid stretch marks, but there’s also no proof it doesn’t work so I think it’s worth a shot. Seems to have worked for me!

@Monny:  That’s 11 days PP?! You look AMAZING! I would have guessed 4 or 6 weeks out!

This is reassuring! Ha 

Thanks for sharing your ‘anti-stretchmark’ regimen. Great to know that it seems to have worked even though genes (like your mom’s) may not have been in your favour for stretchmarks. 

How much weight did you gain overall during the pregnancy? 

Also, congrats on being a mommy!

You look awesome! I lost over 20 pounds in about 3 weeks doing nothing but nursing my baby, and my belly went down more and more each day. Breastfeeding is awesome haha

I looked similar to you and by 6 weeks I looked back to normal except that I needed to exercise to tone and see abs again. Now at 10 weeks after exercising for a month, I can definitely see muscles when I contract, and I can somewhat see them if I don’t contract.

Keep on breastfeeding and be mindful of what you eat and it will melt off in no time.
