I had my baby 4 days ago and I still look about 6 or 7 months pregnant. This is my third pregnancy, I never had this issue with my other two, I feel like a freak. Will this go away or do I have to excercise this off, I am so embarrassed to leave the house. Any one else have this issue and how long did it take for stomach to go down?
ha, I was like that after my first, for a few days afterwards, and it goes down on it's own!
:) Should anyways.
Um, that's extremely common. I'm very surprised you didn't experience this with your first two..
you're still swollen, so its ok. i still looked preggo for.....a few weeks or so
Ha with my first I still looked pregnant for maybe a month.
BD's sister said in the hospital to him that I still looked pregnant, he was like yeah she JUST pushed out a baby, it doesn't just magically go away.
Then at McDonald's I had someone ask how far along I was, I was like ha she is in the back seat.
i still look pregnant and im 7 weeks postpartum..im 5 foot 8 and weighed 120 lbs when i got pregnant, i was a skinny mini.. now im 140 and have this horrible belly pooch..i hate it. i dont have time to exercise..maybe eventually after the holidays i will, but its a little depressing..but totally worth is for my little boy
It's totally normal. They tell you to pack maternity clothes to wear home because you will look at least 5 months pregnant. Except for my aunt, she was 2 pounds under pre-pregnancy weight when she left the hospital. Stupid b***h...:D

HAHAH This same thing happened to me at 2 weeks when I was getting fitted for nursing bra's. I went home and cried :/ but now I laugh. I am now 6 weeks PP and I still think I look pregnant.
Completely normal!! I was that way after all of mine, probably looked more around 4-5 months, but still! It takes a few months for you to go back to normal. I always felt like it took a year before I felt completely prepregancy again....as much as I could anyway!
Oh I know how you feel I was like this after my first baby. When I went out for a smoke in the hospital some pregnant woman came to me and asked me when am i due I feelt horrible i said to her i just had my baby two days ago, she was shocked. My babi girl is nearly 3 months old now and i still look horrible, its not as bad as at the start.
