was still in maternity clothes after bby? It's been 5 weeks since I had my daughter and I know the weight wont fall right off but I'm so scared to buy clothes cause I don't know when I'll stop losing this weight or gaining. ugh.
I'm so sick of my maternity clothes! HELP any advise?
After I had my first child, this was the most irritating thing! I thought you had the baby and wa la, skinny stomach again. I remember thinking of packing my normal clothes for the hospital to go home in but thank goodness my sister made it clear I wouldn't wear those for a while. LOL
It did take me a while too. At about 3 months with my first child, I started to really lose the weight. I started exercising again at that point which helped.
When I had my second? Hm. Well, I've never gotten back to my pre baby size. Boo hoo. I was very thin before kiddos and wore like a 2. That's too skinny, right? (say yes please). My foot also grew a half inch or so when I had kids. That was the worst thing . . . my fab shoe collection no longer fit!
I would say to just put your daughter in a stroller and start going for some brisk walks. Eat healthy (sometimes I over compensated for breast feeding and felt like I 'deserved' that huge plate of pasta. ) and try to eat everything in moderation.
It will come off. You are probably a lot younger than me when I had my kids. That will really help you out!!
good luck (and I'm sure you look great. You have that special new mommy glow!)
I just wore yoga pants and sweatpants throughout my pregnancy. and I bought cute tops that were flowy enough to cover the belly, but so I'd still beable to wear them afterward. maternity clothes are too expensive :/
My baby is 10 weeks old and I am still losing weight. I gained WAY TOO MUCH during my pregnancy, reminding myself "I can lose it later." Well, I gained a total of almost 100 lbs, I am only down 30. I wear flowing maxi dresses with short sleeve sweaters or yoga pants with boxy, oversized t-
@ specialmom you and I were about the same size prebaby.
I actually went through all my clothes yesterday held up my old size 1 pants and said holy $#!+. I couldn't believe I fit those. Haha
I decided to donate them all. dh doesn't understand no matter how much I work out my hips will never be that small again :-( they.spread WAY far. And my feet to have grown thank goodness I was never a shoe person. You can't out grow sun glasses. :-) I gained over 60 lbs. I was 102 before prego now I seen to be haulting at around 140! I've been going to the gym and have also been,walking like,a crazy woman. (I did this before I had her to I'm guessing that's why labor was short) I just need stuff to wear to find a job now.
@mommytobe I got mine at Ross for super cheap! Only spent like 80 dollars and got everything I needed to wear while prego including bigger bras which to no longer fit. It seems as if my boobies have shrunk. :-( even from before bby.
I did lose all the baby weight by week 2 but I only gained 21 pounds. Now the rest of the fat were here from before so I don't see them melting away even with breast feeding. Guess I will have to exercise for real :p
But I still wear all my maternity legging. They are super comfty :)
