If this is your first baby, for all you type A prebaby figure worriers, there’s no logical reason you won’t get your figure back just because you’re going to have a baby, even if you have a small piece of pie now and then. Take a look at all the beautiful, svelte women who have had babies who have gotten their prebaby figures back. Unless you’re planning to eat an entire pie per day after you give birth, you should get your old prepregnancy figure back. Take a look at Jessica Simpson. Notice how Kim Kardashian is getting her old figure back. You can do it, too.
If you haven’t bought any maternity clothes, there are clothes out there for pregnant mothers that really will be perfect for you. There are plenty of bold colors that will make it fun for you during your pregancy. Despite all the clothes that seem to accentuate your baby bump, you can find tops and bottoms as well as dresses that will make you look absolutely stunning in them. Right now, A Pea in the Pod has lovely clothes. As usual, Carson’s has an extensive, exciting maternity clothes collection. If you feel like you’re kind of wide, stay away from the maternity clothes with horizontal stripes and stick to solid colors. Finding tunic tops that cover your hips will make you look elongated and thinner than tunic tops that are shorter with horizontal stripes.
Our model has had babies and got her prebaby figure back rather quickly, but she didn’t gain that much weight. Even if you have gained a lot of pounds, there are places like Weight Watchers that will help you to get back to the figure you had before you were pregnant. Counting calories does work, too. However, if you do need to diet to get your figure back, get some advice from your doctor on how to lose weight after having your baby so you’ll have a diet with plenty of nutritious food. Don’t plan to have nothing but fruits and veggies. Even vegans get a lot of protein and carbohydrates. That said, reward yourself if you have stayed on your diet all day every day, for most of your pregancy and the amount of time you’ve been nursing. Have a little Greek yogurt or a small serving of pudding (unless your doctor says it’s off limits).
So, that should make you feel relieved, if you were worried, even if you have a lot of pounds to shed. You can do it, just like Katie Holmes did after she had Suri and has kept the pounds off. If you wear loose enough clothing, you won’t look overweight. Don’t overstress yourself. Even plus size women can look gorgeous.
