Some realness coming your way!
8 days postpartum and i’m so god damn proud of my body.
It delivered the most beautiful baby in the world and carried it nine months before that.
It’s been said a lot, but i’ll say it again.. a woman’s body is amazing and it’s capability is beyond limits.
I’ll be honest, i’ve screamed “I CANT DO THIS” probably a thousand times during giving birth, but apparantly YES I CAN. And that feels out of this world amazing.
That being said: women, IT’S PERFECTLY NORMAL TO HAVE A BELLY AFTER GIVING BIRTH.
Please let this sink in.
I have followed a lot of pregnant “insta chicks” and preggo “fitgirls”, and i’m sad to see that some of them want to give the impression that it’s normal to have your abs back within a few weeks. It’s NOT.
I’m honestly glad for you that you are in such good shape so soon already, and I certainly don’t mean to say that you have to “accept” living in a body you don’t feel good, healthy or energised in.
You can and should definitely always do whatever it is that you feel comfortable with, BUT: please don’t start doing fucking crunches and sit ups (and totally mess up your body) a few weeks postpartum just because some fitgirl posted her abs saying it’s “self discipline” and “10 minute ab workouts each day”. #icallbullshit
