36 weeks pregnant with twins

Me, just a week after giving birth, and already seeing a huge difference.

  1. I’ve got those strechies too! Oh, will they ever go away?

    • I hope so! It took nine months for the pouch from my son to go away, but it did. I wanted post the pics because I remember searching for postpartum pics when I was pregnant and I really couldn’t find very many. Figured I’d help some fellow mamas to be out.

      • Yeah, it’s a little different when you have twins. Even though my son was almost 9.5lbs that still doesn’t compare to the twins 15lbs!

      • Oh I bet…
        Did your son stay “big”? He was born with the same weight as Zoรกrd and we were very surprised at that since my husband and I are petite.

      • Yeah, I am only 5’5 115 lbs, dad 5’8 160 lbs so we were surprised. He has always been big, he just turned three and is in size 12 shoes and size 4 pants (for the length, his waist is so narrow). He was overdue which may be why he was so big, but the twins were induced at and 38+3 and they were big for twins (avg. Twin weight is 5.5lbs). At 7 months one weights over 24lbs and the other is over 18. Yay vegetarian breastmilk. Ha ha

      • Wow! Interesting! You are a vegetarian as well?

  2. Crazy beautiful!! You are a mama tiger goddess!

  3. fabulous! My twins are almost 3 but i had another in the meantime who is almost one (and my belly was HUGE with 11lbs of him) and my pouch remains. I don’t think it will every completely disappear but as I’m losing weight lately it’s been shrinking fast. Thanks for posting the pics–it’s great to see a NORMAL PP belly!!!

  4. You look fantastic! I’m in the same boat… Lost all my baby weight but have to work on tightening and toning now ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. omg, you have more guts than I do. I have debated about posting a “what baby did to my body” blog post but I don’t think I have the guts to post pictures because it is rough! But you look great, and lets me know with more time it keeps getting better!

    Posted by adventuringintomotherhood | July 23, 2013, 3:24 pm
    • Thanks! I did it because I know there isn’t a lot out there. I am six months pp and have lost almost all the weight and fit back into almost all my clothes again. Just a bit of skin (and my huge boobs lol). It took nine months wih my son for the skin to go away.

      Posted by Shannon | July 23, 2013, 3:33 pm
  6. Your progress is wonderful! I see mine following a similar pattern. Please share your successful tips for how you got to that amazing 9mo pp pic! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Wow look at how quick your tum went down! You seem like you are quite a healthy fit person though and that has to make a difference. Well done!

    • Thanks! My body really bounced back quicker the second time, even though I was much bigger. Not sure if you saw my nine months: then and now pics, but I am back to where I started, plus a saggy skin pouch.

      Posted by Shannon | November 29, 2013, 11:34 pm
      • Yeah it’s amazing!!! So do you think the pouchy bit will ever go??? Or is that it forever because it’s been stretched???

        Posted by mummyflyingsolo | November 29, 2013, 11:35 pm
      • I don’t know. I had one with ds that was gone by 10 months so I am hoping it’s just going to take longer (I am only 10 months now). Eh, I never wore bikinis anyway lol

        Posted by Shannon | November 29, 2013, 11:37 pm
      • lol I’m not into them either. STILL it’s nice on a personal level. I don’t have a pouch but I still have some weird wrinkly skin which says to me it’s not quite as taut as it used to be. I exercise frequently too and my son is 2.

        Posted by mummyflyingsolo | November 29, 2013, 11:42 pm
      • I guess everyone is different. Ha ha, I never exercise…except that my life is a continuous work out, with little time to eat. Good for you. I used to work out before I had kids, but now I have no time for that, maybe when they get older. I also think breastfeeding helped me loose some of the weight.

        Posted by Shannon | November 29, 2013, 11:46 pm
      • Yeah I bet those kids keep you damn busy!!!!!

        Posted by mummyflyingsolo | November 29, 2013, 11:50 pm
      • Hell ya! And the animals too.

        Posted by Shannon | November 30, 2013, 12:09 am
  8. Thank you for this!!!

    Posted by Okayest Mom | December 30, 2013, 3:52 pm
    • You are welcome! You know I am so self conscious I won’t wear a bathing suit but wanting to help others trumped it. Luckily now at almost 12 months the pouch is finally shrinking at a decent rate. Thanks for reading.

  9. The human body is an amazing thing, and yours is no exception! Way to go, mama!

  10. I love that you posted these pics. You are brave, especially since you wrote that you are self-conscious and won’t even wear a swimsuit. But a real post-partum belly (not airbrushed celebrities who spend tons on looking like they never gave birth) is something new moms need to see, because it’s perfectly normal and beautiful because of what it stands for!

    • Thanks, that’s exactly why I did it. Especially now that I have daughters myself I am so conscious of the pressure the media creates on women to look a certain way. It breaks my heart when I see pregnant women who are starving themselves because they don’t want to be fat. You are growing a life inside of you! Give yourself a break and be healthy for you and your baby. I am a tiger who has earned her stripes ๐Ÿ™‚
