For moms who already have a LO. Did you body go back to normal? Now I understand about losing the extra weight, but my fingers seem to be huge and my shoes no longer fit (I had to go up a size). So were you able to wear rings again or put on your old shoes?

it will, when you’re ready. I gained 40 lbs while pregnant lost 25 after i had LO, then gained again. It was hard for me because i was breastfeeding and pumping so i was perpetually tired but then i went to the Drs and i was at 171 when i decided that was TOO MUCH for me. ive been working out and counting calories for 3m, LO is 1 now. and ive lost 12lbs.

@Hespurrfect4me- Good for you to be able to stick with a routine. I can imagine how hard it is. I just never realized my fingers and feet would become a different size too.

Yes, it will go back to normal. It takes time, lots of time. I don’t think my body when back to “normal” until about a year. Then it was actually normal about 6 months after that went I lost all the baby weight.
There are some things that have stayed the same or didn’t go away. Such as…stretch marks on my body. They aren’t blue or purple or even pink anymore, they are fleshed colored so they are not super noticeable. Also, my acne, it was horrible when I was pregnant. It subsided slightly, but never went back to completely “normal.”

I think this depends on how old you are when you have your child. I think younger = better chance of total return to pre-preg body. My kids are 16 & 21 but I was 31 and 37 when I had them. Nothing went back to normal. The older you get the harder it is to lose weight. Some women naturally tend towards a thinner body shape. However, I see plenty of women who had children in their 20s whose bodies did recover perfectly. I’m not sure any woman’s breasts go back to a pre -pregnancy shape – I’m pretty sure not.
