The PP body - Page 2

I really appreciate everyone's honest stories and the pictures and the link.

I have to admit that I'm still freaked out by it, and I hate that. But like many of you have said, it will all be worth it. Although I'm still praying that I'm going to bounce back and look great

Your words sound like how I felt during pregnancy.
You know what? 8 months PP, my belly looks like one of the worst twin PP bellies that I've seen. My tummy is like 2+twins belly but worse (I know, as we've compared ). Most days I'm okay with it, but not if I fixate on it. I really have had to work on accepting it. Now I'm trying to work to get my abdominal muscles back together as much as is possible, and only if they continue to present a problem would I consider surgery. I am very scared of post-breastfeeding breasts now, though!

And to heck with genetics and belly butters. I had both in my favor. My Mom never had stretch marks. She also never carried twins to 42 weeks!!!

I hope that however your body reacts to a twin pregnancy, that you'll find peace with it.

I had a friend who lived two blocks away from me who carried her twins to 37 weeks. She lost so much weight so quickly, that I think she had supply challenges. But I was soooooo jealous that she got TINY!!! I haven't had a look at her bare belly, but she looked better than she ever had. So, there is always that possibility, but there is also the possibility of feeling like you should be able to lose weight and look great too. That's a tough burden to carry. I guess it really is about becoming comfortable in your own skin, twin skin included.
