Ok, so my two beautiful baby boys are undeniably worth it but seriously im not even 30 and my body is wrecked already!ive always had pretty low confidence in my appearance but i look back at pics taken about five years ago and wonder what i was moaning about. I was a size 10 with reasonably perky boobs, shiny hair and no dark circles (ruddy great haversacks) under my eyes. Fast forward and i look older than my mother with stretch marks, saggy boobs and an extra 2.5 stone that wont flaming shift. Mirrors should be banned!aibu to want to slap the old me about a bit and say enjoy it while it lasts you stupid woman!

My boobs, fat belly with apron make my front look like Homer Simpson's face (boobs are the eyes, apron crease the mouth and belly button the nose)

The tragic thing is, I still look for clothes that would only suit pre-baby me. Well, pre-DS2 anyway - managed to ping back quite successfully after the first pregnancy. I look longingly at the cute little dresses and tight trousers I used to wear, then stump off to get myself something sackshaped from Frumps R Us.

Mine has popped back more or less to normal, slight dimples on one side of belly but not too bad at all so there is hope! And I am not a young mum either.

But my hair, oh I have about 50% of what I used to have! Does it grow back?

Icarus I don't mean things will get worse, just that we always look back on things with rose tinted glasses!

My dd is 9 and I jut about regained my figure but ds is 2 and its finished off my skin. To be fair I don't exercise other than walking at mo due to bad back but still I don't think it can be fixed . In an hourglass though and with the right underwear I can wear body con stuff so it's not all bad .

My lovely curvy smooth body that i thought was fat is so long gone i miss it soo much sad pregnant with dc3 and i have - stretchmarks from behind my knees right up my legs, round my bits and bobs, up to my boobs, around my back fat, on My saggy dd/e boobs and am just repulsive sad i am wibbly for crying out loud!

Dp loves my big fat boobs, has no problems with my strutting about in the nude but i know he misses my pre ds body as much as i do. Once dd2 comes i'm taking up every exercise known to man grin
