Tonight I got into a discussion with a friend who just had a baby. She mentioned to me how she felt she needed to loose weight… (which is silly because she looks fantastic to me!) but I then agreed how hard it is to get back into the shape you were before, after you have a baby. I then told her…
Its weird how when your pregnant… you feel BIG… obviously, but you don’t really feel FAT.. I mean to a degree any way. But after you have the baby its a very strange thing that happens… your belly deflates.. but its almost as if your fat distributes elsewhere from the belly.. to your love handles LOL, to your face, to your upper arms, to your inner thighs… and you still do keep some in the belly, but not at all in the same way as when you were pregnant 🙂
Its like a Belly Deflation effect!
So note to any 1st time moms… its totally normal to experience this odd and uncomfortable effect 😀 – I will say though, it does eventually go away (to a degree) with some work hehe.
