I had not thought about how different my belly is going to look after birth.
I've struggled with weight issues- I've never been extremely overweight, but slightly plump. Even when I was plump, I have NEVER carried any weight on my stomach. It doesn't really bother me now, because there is a baby in there. But I'm really wondering how I'm going to feel once the baby comes out and its just a huge mass of flabby, saggy skin?
Will I be so enamored by baby and exhausted I don't even pay attention to it? Is it not as bad as I'm thinking? Did anyone else have this issue? How long did it take to get back to semi-normal?
I feel so vain talking about this, but at the same time, I want to prepare myself for what it will be like so it won't be a huge shock. I'm at risk for PPD to begin with and I could see something like this making it worse.
