You read that right. Not anybody, my body. Yeah, my body that used to respond to deprivation of all things tasty and ridiculous exercise. No more, I tell you! How can I be running absurd distances, eating pretty darn healthy (valentines exception), constantly be chasing after a very fast crawler, but still not be improving?
I’m at my pre-pregnancy weight, and my clothes fit, so I guess I shouldn’t complain, but there is no way I am wearing a bathing suit this year. I’ve thought, maybe if I get tan enough, it will be better. I ran the idea past my mom to pierce my belly button just as a distraction…I could see her keel over through the phone. Haha. That’s my Mom.
I don’t want to tell God how to do His job or anything, but seriously, this area could have used some improving. There should be some intense post-baby tightening hormones that work much like a face lift, just further south.
I had a feeling this would happen, and that’s why while my Dr. was doing the c-section to deliver my massive child, I was begging him to do a little nip/tuck.
It makes perfect sense.
Shoot, I might have even snuck him a few $20s on his way out. Now I find myself judging the plastic California women a little bit less. I have always liked watching Dr. 90210.
Maybe I should pay him a little visit. Hmmm.
I guess that’s something my husband would find out about, huh?
All the men are probably so grossed out right now. Wait, do men read this? At least you moms are agreeing with me…well, I think you are.
Crap, am I the only one in this boat?
Oh, and you poor girls that dream of being mommies; you might be doing some serious reconsideration. So sorry! Oh, well. I know my body will never be perfect, but I do know one thing is for sure . When I lay down with Cooper to put him to bed, I love how he throws his little arm around my neck and squishes his face against mine. While I am waiting for him to fall asleep, I know that I would do anything, give up anything, change anything to be right there.
To be his mom.

Girl I am the same way…Im actually below my pre pregnancy weight and with clothes on everything is fine but a swimsuit? No way! Maybe it will just miraculously get better for us!
Agree. I can't do anything like I used to with this body. LOL!
I wish I would've appreciated my pre-pregnancy body a lot more! I was all embarassed then, I don't know what I was thinking!
I have noticed that it starts to look better after awhile. My hips will never be the same though. But at least the stretch marks and squishiness of it isn't as bad. But go figure I plan on getting pregnant this year!

Oh my goodness, could you be any funnier/sweeter/cuter? I think not. I almost just cried!!!
Love this post. Please post more "best of" posts! Even though I think I've read them all…
Happy New Year, sweetie!
I'm having a giveaway on my blog! If you want some healthy soup!!!
Perfect post! You are so funny. I feel the same about my post-baby body, especially after now having two little ones. My weight is even below what I was before I got prego with my first, but now I just need my boobs back after breastfeeding two children and I wish my stomach was tighter….but just like you said about Cooper-I wouldn't trade a thing! They are so worth it!
Can't wait for more best of posts!
