Hello, I've just found out I'm pregnant with my 3rd and am wondering how it's going to affect my body following the birth?! I've had a bit of a tummy since my 2nd but should I be expecting the worse following my 3rd as in v.wobbly, saggy tummy?!

My 3rd is 10 weeks old now and I'm in between maternity clothes which are too big, and my normal clothes which are a bit tight.

When I was pregnant one midwife told me that my stomach muscles had gone! and to wear a support belt, which I really liked.

I asked my GP to check my tummy at 6 weeks and he said it was fine.

I eat a lot of chocolate.

Good luck and enjoy your pregnancy.

Thanks for the replies, although the outlook doesn't sound too good. I must only be about 5 weeks, but surely I can't have started showing can I? I must google stuff on stomach muscles and support belts.... do you think it's a bit silly to start doing sit ups (?!)
