Key Words

I received this via email from babycenter.com. It was part of their weekly newsletter that I subscribe to.

Childbirth is a life- and body-changing experience: Your hips and waist may now be slightly wider, and your belly may be softer. Give yourself at least the nine months it took to grow your baby to return to something closer to your pre-pregnancy shape. Many women find that they simply can't return to their pre-pregnancy weight. As long as your weight is in a healthy range, this is perfectly okay.

The key words in this tid bit of information:
"life- and body-changing and can't return

I agree, childbirth and pregnancy are life- and body-changing and my belly seems to be very squishy after giving birth. The wider hips I haven't really noticed, but I am sure that is because I try to avoid looking in the mirror!
