Hi, im pregnant with my second child now. Im really paranoid about my weight and dont know how my body will go after, did anyone find it harder after there second to get there figure back?

Yes I did. I had my first and was a size 10 before and after. When I had my second I ended up a 14. She's 7 now and I'm only just losing the weight.

It's really dependent on age and genetics.

I'm slimmer after DS2 than I was before DS1. I put effort into losing it both times, and took up running second time.

I had a lot of loose skin after DS1. The combination of gaining half my bodyweight and a CS did me no favours, but my waist is now smaller than pre-babies despite the mummy wobble.

Yes, if you want to!
I was straight back into the gym ( the gym had a creche) 5 days a week. I used to go walking for miles with the pram.

I kept the weight off for nearly 19 years and have let myself go in the last 8 months or so. I'm mentally preparing myself to start again and have booked spinning and kettlebell classes for next week

When I was pregnant with dd1 I put on loads of weight and took a while to lose it. With dd2 I was much smaller and it only took me a few months to get back to pre-dc weight confused

I don't think you can predict it at all!

When DC2 was 14 months and I was 37, I did my beach life guard certification, which involved a lot of physical training and hours in the pool with squad swimmers half my age who I had to keep up with.
I not only gained a diploma, butalso an amazing toned body, flat stomach and the confidence of being able to help my children in case of emergency in or outside the water.
I really recommend it!
