Before Ollie was born, I wondered how long it would take to not look pregnant. I didn't take a picture in the hospital, but should have. The first day I looked 4 or 5 months pregnant still, by Saturday, I looked 3ish or barely 4 months, and these pictures were taken yesterday.
There's still a lot of skin and a water belly feel - along with a much wider waist, but I'm pleased overall. Between today's weather and just generally wanting to wear my old clothes again, I'm ready to run again! My big girl will be all kinds of excited about that!
This is the best just-after-baby belly shot I have to compare.
I don't know that I'll do another TIBS post - it's been fun to see the weekly changes, but I think it's safe to say that it would be pretty boring from here on out.
For the record, I never did get stretch marks or any itching. I swear by Palmer's. Some people say it doesn't matter if you use it or not because some people will get stretch marks regardless. That certainly may be true, but my skin stayed hydrated and now that I'm not pregnant, it looks better than it ever has. I still love Palmer's. Use it! :)
