Post partum body dysmorphia

I’m not looking for “Noooo, you’re beautiful!” Comments. I’m feeling hella ugly and fat. I’m not. I’m factually aware, but from my preeclampsia my face and body swelled to the point where I looked well unlike myself (really not good). I feel like I still look like this. I hate having sex now, I don’t feel good without makeup. Anyone else having this weirdness? It fricken sucks.

Yes!! With my first I was waaaay skinny I hated it! Size 0 were loose on me! I worked out and gained weight and finally was happy then I got pregnant 🤰🏻.... baby number two left me stretch marks and extra weight...so I have to start all over again. I hate it! I have the way I look and makes me feel very unhappy and unattractive...definitely hurting the sex life as well...trying to get motivated again to get back to how I was and better...but it’s freaking tough! You got this girl! One day at the time! You’re definitely not the only one feeling like this. I’m 3 months pp about to try carb cycling and see how it goes

Honestly I felt the same way!! I also was so fatigued. Baby #3 is no joke!! I started a 3 step program and I feel like a million bucks!!

I’m fat, ugly and too damn tired to go to the gym. No support so I’m doing this all alone. It’s exhausting keeping a human not only alive and healthy but also happy. I’m 4 months post partum. I had breastfeeding issues (still do), I’m on birth control AND Eglonyl (to increase lactation). It’s hard it really is and it’s frustrating because I was super fit before I had the baby. My stomach is basically the same size as where my boobs sit. It’s honestly just all a mess...but alas. Even if my scale keeps saying I’ve gained 31lbs I still just try do the little exercise I can and eat as healthy as I can 🤷🏾‍♀️

Yes I had the same shit for about three months and I hated it the thing that actually helped me on a number of levels was microdosing with cannabis and CBD. Getting back into eating healthier and going to the gym also help to me.

I think it sucks that after having a baby we feel the way we do. We accomplished an amazing thing, we made a human. I’m looking at my body and grabbing my muffin top wondering why my body betrayed me 😂 it’s normal. My hairline is crazy standing straight up with all the new growth. My boobs aren’t as cute and my gut sticks out farther than they do. I don’t feel pretty and makeup doesn’t help that. I just try to make an effort to solve my problems and keep pushing that jogger around the block.
