I'm not sure how this works. But I am a new Mom, just had a handsome baby boy almost three months ago. I am 21 and I feel so ugly.. My body hasn't Gone back to normal yet.. What are some good ideas to help? I feel like my husband isn't turned on by me anymore, at least not as much.. And I do try and walk but I feel so lazy all the time. And have nobody to go with.. Any ideas would help! Thank you
Congrats on the new baby, Angie! It's only been 3 months, so don't be so hard on yourself. I felt the same way that you do. It will take a little time, but your body will slowly start to feel like your own again. Walking with your baby is a great way to start getting back into shape. And I'm sure your husband is just as turned on by you - just have more confidence in yourself and that should help your bedroom dynamic

Can you do any kind of working out? I took me until my little guy was 6 mths to start working out since I work full time too but once I did last Dec I starting dropping the weight and feeling so much better and sexy again. I just used what we had which in the winter in Chicago area is all indoors, running up and down our many flights of stairs and having my husband teach me how to use his free weights to weight lift. I not only lost the remaining 20 lbs of the 60 I gained while carrying my BIG boy, I am now down an addtl 20 lbs from my pre-preg weight that I was trying to lose before I got pregnant. I am still working on tightening up what I call my post baby body, but having to get out the "skinny" jeans from my closet made me smile for days. So my advice is find a way to do more than just walk, a video work out or jogging or some thing, and just the act of doing it may make you feel better. Hope this help
I just had my second baby 2 1/2 months ago & I feel the same way Angie does. My stomach looks terrible & now sags kind of. I went to get a consultation for a tummy tuck. Are there any moms out there who have had one? Im wondering if it's more painful than a c-section? Were you able to take care of the kids too?
hi angie i have my 2 baby nine months ago, at firts i feel the same, but dont fo
cus in your body focus in that little angel.for him you are the most beautiful person. hi love the way you are.give yourself some time do some exercise, and love yourself.
No, I don't think you are 'lazy'. Just that you have been deprived of sleep and your body has gone through lots of trauma and you are slowly regaining back your true self. Unfortunately, it can never be back 100% so, just be happy because that's what makes you a true mom. Your hubby still loves you but just probably has been tired with the arrival of the little one. take care...
I had a baby 9 mos ago. While prego I gained 70 lbs and have lost 50 of it so far. The last part is killing me to get rid of its hard to balance sleep, eating right, baby, and gym.
I've good news for you, angie! I'm worse than you, ok so that doesn't really sound so nice, but my body hasn't lost that belly after my two kids. I know it will go away is I work out regularly.
However, I am not disciplined enough and motivated enough to do it regularly. A work in progress, I am.
Be the change you want the world to see.
