“Hey, are you pregnant?” A colleague asked me, smiling happily. “Nope, I’m so fat!” I would have sunk in the ground before. So she looked around inside the next hole, into which she can disappear …
Thick baby babies are duly accused and pictured, but what does it actually look like with the belly after pregnancy and birth? Is the real #afterbabybody so perfectly trained and slender as it’s celebrities, instagram posers and magazines?
I’ll show you an untimely selection of bellies – thick, thin, immaculate, imperfect, with kaiserschnittnarbe or without, smooth, striped, pierced, tattooed … Hauptache, there was already a baby in it:
Not necessarily beautiful.
Slight not at all.
And two pregnancies did not make him any better either – the two guys gave me pregnancy strips.
I once again tried my network and asked for belly photos. I want to show with these pictures thehonest, unvarnished truth about mummy-bellies after birth – thick, thin, flawless, imperfect, with kaiserschnittnarbe or without, smooth, striped, pierced, tattooed … It’s actually all there. In the bellies shown here 1, usually 2 or even 3 children grew up. With some bellies, the pregnancy is longer, not with others.
The adorable quote of the daughter of a blogger colleague says: “Soft as a ham!”
11 Bellies Of 11 Brave Mothers
Thanks for your belly donations (in alphabetical order) : dawuschn.at , diekleinebotin.at ,franzlsontour.com , junika.at , hubiversum.at , littlebeeblog.wordpress. com ,minimidimami.blogspot.co.at , mom4mom.at , mumshappylife.wordpress.com , whatalovelyday.at and my a. Which belly to which blog belongs, I will not tell of course!
For a long time I used to bite my belly, but now I am convinced:
Life is too short to constantly feed your belly!
As Bettina Leinenbach wrote on migrosmagazin.ch :
This shapeless protuberance, which looks as if an enormous Marshmallow had implanted me beneath the umbilicus, is a proof that my body is capable of great things. That’s why I wear the belly from now on with a little more dignity.
Accept What Is
I arranged with my belly. Mine belongs to the genus “Tiger”. Or “zebra” – according to the daily constitution, as a mother also affected by pregnancy strips. And my tiger belly belongs to me. He was and is my teacher in matters of “accept, what is”.
But “accepting what is” does not mean doing nothing. For I am already aware that I am not entirely out of shape. Besides, I can not just talk about the pregnancies – so honestly I have to be myself. Well, to my best friends belong ” Spanx ” – thus known as “Shapeware”. Perhaps I also chat a bit from the sewing box how and with what I try to keep my belly in check, to make it a little tighter. Yes, maybe I should do that …
How Are You With Your Belly After Birth?
Have you made peace with your belly? Or do you “fight” him?
It is, like so much, in the eye of the beholder.

Psst Of course I did not say “No, I’m so fat!” – where do you think? My real answer was, “Well, I am so blaaaad!”
