The Post Pregnancy Body : Week 3

Week 3! Looking better! Still holding on to 13 pounds but I am not sweatin that as much as the extra skin Ive got around the waist! I wonder if that just goes away or stays or what?
It looks better from the side than the front, b.c the front is where  my " leftovers" collect.  Also ready for that line to go away too! Glad I have the fall/winter to prepare for swimsuits.
I have also realized that these purple pants are the least flattering pants EVER.

The Leftovers:

Let's Review:

Can I just say how absolutely fabulous you are for putting this out there? As someone without kids, I know nothing about post-baby bodies. But as someone who wants kids, this is just the kind of thing I'd like to know about. The stuff I want to expect but won't find in "What to Expect When You're Expecting." Thank you!

And by the way, I think you look phenomenal. I've got more "leftovers" than that and I sure didn't have a baby 3 weeks ago! :)

You are so awesome for doing this! You are looking great. I hope I can drop the weight and leftovers as quickly as you have.

You are looking awesome and I'm hoping that the extra skin does go away. I mean surely it goes somewhere. Why did no one prepare us for this?!

Can't wait to see how awesome you look next week!

It has been over a year and my wife still has her line. I am not sure if that is common, but she did say it went away faster with the first baby. You are awesome for documenting this.

wow, looking great laura! I love these weekly pics. Im so curious. Thanks for sharing and keep up the good work!

Courtney said...

You look great Momma! And I agree with Melissa above...I sure don't have kids, but I want to know about this kinda stuff for when I DO have them. Saves the stress of wondering if you are "normal" and if everything is "ok". :) Keep it up!

Ah.may.zing! Great job on sharing and preparing the non baby peeps!! My line took several months to go away, and one year later my belly is pretty jello jigglers even after one bajillion sir ups. I think it's just life/nature.

Cary said...

I do believe the 13 pounds you still have is in your boobies!!! You look great Laura and I can't wait to see Mr. PB!

We are all very impressed with your willingness to discuss & show your week to week transformation. You look AMAZING!!! And I think I'm still holding on to baby weight & you know how old your Kindred Spirit is!!! LOL

jenn said...

I would like to say how happy I am for you.... but really I'm just jealous. so :( and :)

hugs!

Brandy said...

i'm thinking you are looking pretty freaking good

Celeste said...

The line will take a few months. I had Collins in January and it was gone by the Spring. The "leftovers" will settle too and the weight will come off! You are doing great!

I attempted to use some price inflated belly band corset contraption immediately after I had Collins, but finally put it away. I had so many other contraptions to worry with...I didn't want a corset too!

You are doing great!

Julie Bray said...

You look great! I'm so jealous! Are you doing anything to help loss it besides wearing the girdle thingy?
I need a plan for my excess 13 lbs I haven't lost in 7 weeks post birth.

brown eyed girl said...

Holy hot damn batman, that looks like two different people from the first and third pictures!!! You are looking great!

And seriously, thank you sooo much for these posts. Even tho we're not having babies for another 308432098 years, I like being in the know..in advance! :)

I must say that you are my hero for posting the post baby pictures. NEVER would I do such a thing--much too embarrassing for me. Nicholas is 7 months old and my line has pretty much faded away. Unfortunately, the "left over" 25 pounds are still hanging out with me. I'm just so happy to have a happy healthy baby that everything else is secondary to me. You look great Laura!! Keep up the great posts! Gwynne
