grr. dont read this if you are your pre-preg size again already - Page 2

post #21 of 26
in from the may ddc as my baby was actually an april baby...
i'm at 6 weeks pp and the belly and boobs are out of control even though my weight is below pp ( i was sick the whole 9 months...).

does anyone know when the boobs are suppose to deflate some?
i went shirt shopping tonight and was having trouble getting anything to close over these bad boys...

i have friends that just shrink when they nurse, breasts and all - i just haven't expereinced that myself. i keep saying i just want to nurse until i'm an A cup...!

In my experience, with only one nursling the deflation happens between 5 and 8 months. While I was tandem nursing, it happened a lot more quickly; like around 3 months.

For a change, though, I *want* my boobs to be huge. It draws attention away from the tragedy that is my stomach.

that's all I have to say. Drawstrings are my friend.

: I found that mine deflated some around 6 months with ds1. I was finally able to wear the not-so-giant nursing bras .

Mine are currently quite enormous, and I'm trying very hard to enjoy that view. They'll be rather sad and flat when it's all over. Now that my shirts look funny with these suckers.... So, heads up! Try to luuurve them

I have to lose about 20 pounds. But I could probably lose more than that, if you know what I mean.

And yeah! I have the linea negra showing up very badly, worse than when I was pregnant. The stomach is getting in shape, although a bit saggy. But the skin looks like chicken skin, you know what I mean?

And I have stretch mark on the front of my thighs and back of my hips... none on my belly. How odd. :

I was one of the lucky ones with myfirst child. I just bounced right back. But now, my three year old can run up to me when I am sitting, pull my shirt up, and grab that lovely little roll and go "squish squish" Nice huh? And oh, my youngest is 1.......*sigh*
