Hi, just wondering how did you manage to get in shape after giving birth - as I have horrible body now my baby is 3 months old she was 4 kg baby , now I can’t go out for running with this type of body or may be I am having body shaming now, husband thinks I am fat women now 😖 any suggestions?

Tell your husband to fuck off until he's risked his life and ruined his body to grow a human being! This is the time you should both be in awe of the amazing thing your body has achieved.

Have you tried any creams? Massage? Corset whilst exercising to reduce the giggles?

Did you have natural birth or cesarean?

Where you overweight before?

Sorry for all of the questions but it'll all make a difference...

Jiggles not giggles! 😂

No I wasn’t- I was normal weight until 7 month then it all started . Yes it was normal but vacuum and some complications -
I haven’t tried anything just doing normal exercise at home. But it takes time but partner doesn’t understand this.

Are you breastfeeding OP? That really helped me to shift all the baby weight and more. Also calorie counting apps are amazing.

Walking everywhere, portion control (as in eating what a portion should be not however much I felt like) and time.

I did take a couple of classes with my baby too - mum and baby yoga and a baby wearing workout class. I know a lot of mums do buggyfit too.

To be honest I didn't try that hard and it took me at least a year to start to feel mostly normal again. Two years later actually weigh less than before baby and feel me again.

I second the suggestion of telling your husband to fuck off!

Your baby is 3 months old - give yourself a chance. If you do choose to try to lose the weight, try post natal yoga and walking at first along with a sensible diet. You have to make sure you heal well before trying a more grueling exercise regime.

I didn't properly lose the baby weight until he started sleeping well at night. That was at about 10 months old.

Get you jiggling ass running and run far far away from your twat of a husband.

Your DH is a dick and his comments are disgusting! I'm not sure I could share my life with such a shallow person.
It takes 9 months to grow a baby and they say it takes at least 9 months to fully recover. If you're BF that helps reduce weight.

Thankyou all for suggestions- I am not talking to him as he said yesterday where ever I touch it’s meat everywhere
I am on diet and some home exercise
I used to breastfeed but when I started doing diet and stress now my milk doesn’t come the way it used to so I have to bottle feed him.

I found the best way to get back into shape was walking with the baby in the buggy. Good to get fresh air as well for you and baby. Your husband is an ass by the way.

First your husband shouldn't be commenting on your body. Second in my experience it takes a lot longer than you think to get your body back. My DS is 14 months old and I've only just starting to feel like my body is back to normal. So please don't be so hard on yourself especially so soon after having a baby.

Your husband is an arse.

If you want to get fitter consider getting a running buggy. Great for long bumpy country walks when baby is small and then runs around the park when baby can hold their head up and is more sturdy.

"Meat everywhere"?! This is abusive language.
