First letter to my tummy;)

For the last couple of months I was really bad for you. I know that I’m moaning all the time that you are bigger now. I don’t like your shape anymore. I hate that you are not flat anymore. That’s why I’m torture you with everyday exercises. That workouts are really hard. I feel pain so probably you feel them as well. I repeated to myself that it is for our own good.

It Is not because I don’t like you. I take care of you. I really do. I’m using best cosmetics to firm your skin. During bath I’m giving you a massage. I need to admit that you are starting to look better. I hope that all my effort will make you beautiful again. I’m doing that because I want to prepare you for next pregnancy. Of course we have couple of years for that but I know it need to take a time.

I would like to tell you that you are very important for me. When I’m think about you I’m quite emotional. For nine months you were like a garden for the most beautiful and precious flower-my son. I will be eternally grateful to you. He could grow in you without any problems. Every day he was bigger and bigger and what most important he was healthy. I have no doubt that it was because of you. You was able to keep him inside for 41 weeks and 5 days.

I know for sure that I love you. You were my baby’s home and now you are a place where he loves to sleep. He loves to touching you with his cute little hands. Also I’m glad that you don’t have any stretch marks. You don’t even look so bad because I saw worst tummies after 9 months of pregnancy. I’m just want to be prepared for having another flower. We need to be in good shape. I’m sure that you understand me. I bet that you want to look good in bikini. So we need to work together. You didn’t disappoint me and my son so I will do the same for you.

    Post baby tummies are rough! I have had 5 children and each time i struggle more with my post-natal self and try harder to get that squishy thing back in shape. I have managed to do each time, but it is a struggle…and now i realize that after five stretchings my tummy will never get back to it’s super flat early 20’s self…I”m in great shape but there just a tad extra skin that bothers me and my uterus being stretched a bit bigger makes it impossible for my tummy to have it’s college luster. LOL. such is life. i guess it’s a trade off for all these great babies!

    I was so happy the whole time that I didn’t have any stretchmarks but then suddenly in the 9th month they all appeared!! Strechmarks will always stay but gotta work on the extra skin and belly fat

    I don’t have kids yet so I don’t know much about post-pregnancy tummies but I will say this, I know a lot of women who looked even better after pregnancy by choosing to take that step to workout and take care of themselves. I see that you are doing that so Kudos, hunny! You will love it even more after I’m sure–just keep going <3

    Mmmm – I am so busy I tend not to think about my tum too much but when I do I do vow to try and be better at eating less crap etc. However, I have to remember it did carry 2 baby girls, 2 placentas and all that comes with being pregnant with twins for 38 weeks so I should really be in awe of my body too – thanks for the reminder. #familyfun

    I was really proud of my pregnant belly, after miscarriages I was feeling like my body was failing me, so after finally delivering a healthy baby girl I really enjoyed my body more than ever. I was lucky not to get stretch marks either. Yes after 3 kids my tummy is no where near as flat or tight as it was, but really I am Ok with it. #familyfun

    Aw this was sweet! I just recently had a baby boy as well! While i had a tummy to begin with, it’s definitely different now and I’m slowly accepting it because it gave me my son, it kept him safe and brought him into this world beautifully, though it may not have been perfect.

    I’d love to get my tummy back from before I had the twins. So I made sure that I ate right and that I was more active. It got smaller and smaller eventually but it wasn’t an easy task, it really took time.

    I have had a love/hate relationship with my tummy. I LOVED being pregnant with my twins. I gained 55 lbs and strutted around naked like I was on stage with a pole. Now after delivery, ehhhh….not so crazy about the tummy. No bikinis for me! It’s rough on a woman’s body when she’s a stone’s throw away from 38 to gain and lose that amount of weight in that short period of time. The elasticity is just not there! Having said that, I am proud of the “job” my tummy did too and will rock this loose skin as best as I can. πŸ™‚ #bestandworst

    Oh I don’t think mine has been the same since I had my daughter 11 years ago. I actually lost my weight and it was a lot flatter but then when I had my third child, I lost it and I’ve never got it back. I am currently eating healthily and exercising as I know something has to be done but it is so hard. πŸ™‚

    Oh I am also so scared to write things like this for fear of getting lynched and not embracing my mum tum the way I should…. I was quite lucky that the baby tum go back to ‘normal’ relatively quickly after both babies but then that’s something that was important to me. I say normal it is a slightly looser normal lol. I think the motivation for another baby must be great – I don’t have that lol xx
